Reports of transcatheter treatment for dual drainage of an abnormal pulmonary venous connection are rare. Presently described is the case of a 27-year-old female with exertional dyspnea and a partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection of the left upper pulmonary vein with dual drainage to a vertical vein (VV) and the left atrium. The patient was evaluated with a balloon occlusion test to determine whether closing the anomalous VV connection would increase pulmonary pressure. The results of this test are an important guide to treatment decisions. A 12x9 mm Amplatzer Vascular Plug II device was successfully used to occlude the anomalous pulmonary venous connection using a transcatheter technique. This is a less invasive option than surgical repair and can be an appropriate choice in suitable cases.
