© 2018 The Society of Thoracic Surgeons We present a case of a young female patient with end-stage lung failure because of pulmonary arterial hypertension who was failing maximal medical therapy and was listed for a single sequential lung transplantation. The challenge of the case was a concomitant presence of a large atrial septal defect. The novelty of our approach was a device closure of atrial septal defect before performing transplantation with the use of intraoperative venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation.
