Pulmonary venous pathway obstruction is a late complication of the atrial switch operation for transposition of the great arteries. Gaining peripheral access to the pulmonary venous baffle obstruction to treat the obstruction with stent deployment is difficult if not impossible. We present three patients in which we used hybrid procedures in the operating room to relieve the pulmonary venous pathway obstructions.
