Abstract

Complications after successful angioplastic dilatation of pulmonary artery narrowings have been well documented, and are known to include rupture and death.1 Transient unilateral pulmonary edema, resolving within a few days after dilatation has occurred.2 Successful dilatation of stenosed Blalock-Taussig (B-T) shunts, both classic and modified, has been performed for palliation in selected patients.2-4 This report notes a late complication of shunt angioplasty-the development of excessive pulmonary blood flow.
