Abstract

Right-to-left interatrial shunt (RLIAS) resulting in platypnea orthodeoxia after a right pneumonectomy is an infrequent postoperative complication. Percutaneous device closure or surgical closures using cardiopulmonary bypass have been the standard interventions for RLIAS correction. We describe a technique using a tissue expander to correct a RLIAS. © 2012 The Society of Thoracic Surgeons.
