Özet

Treatment of Scimitar syndrome is usually surgical; however, if there is "dual drainage" - that is, one to the inferior caval vein and the other to the left atrium - it is possible to successfully treat this anomaly via a less-invasive transcatheter approach. We report a case of Scimitar syndrome in a 21-month-old, male infant successfully treated with transcatheter embolisation.
