A patent foramen ovale with right-to-left shunting was responsible, in part, for profound hypoxemia in a patient who required mechanical support with a left ventricular assist device for cardiogenic shock. The patent foramen ovale was detected with contrast transesophageal echocardiography, and the defect was closed successfully with a transcatheter septal defect closure device.
