Abstract: 

Background: Sinus of Valsalva-right ventricle fistula is a recognized but very rare complication after surgical repair of subaortic ventricular septal defect. Surgical repair with cardiopulmonary bypass and percutaneous transcatheter closure guided by x-ray has been the traditional treatment for fistula of sinus of Valsalva.
Case Presentation: Recently, we have used a novel approach, that avoids the need for either secondary open surgical repair or radiation exposure; that is, minimally invasive transthoracic device closure guided by transesophageal echocardiography to occlude an acquired sinus of Valsalva-right ventricle fistula in a 4-year-old patient.
Conclusion: To our knowledge, there have been no prior cases reported of this technique applied to close an acquired sinus of Valsalva-right ventricle fistula. This report aims to provide a detailed description of the procedure.
