ABSTRACT
Scimitar syndrome, a rare congenital cardiopulmonary anomaly, consists of partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection of the right lung to the inferior vena cava, right lung hypoplasia and anomalous systemic arterial supply to the right lung. A 5 month old child with scimitar syndrome and pulmonary hypertension, underwent stenting of anomalous pulmonary vein, and coil embolization of systemic collateral artery to the right lung. Surgical ligation of large patent ductus arteriosus was performed to further decrease pulmonary artery pressure. Child was discharged after a successful combined therapy of surgical and transcatheter intervention.
