    Stenting of the left pulmonary venous baffle obstruction was successfully performed in a 6 year old girl after the Mustard operation for transposition of the great arteries. She also had stent implantation in both the superior vena cava and inferior vena cava baffle junctions. These procedures were followed by sustained clinical improvement. Angiography showed that all three stents were fully patent a year after the procedure.
