The closure of a secundum atrial septal defect through the jugular vein in a child with interrupted inferior vena cava with azygos continuation by steerable delivery catheter is described in the present report. The steerable catheter can be used to correct the perpendicular position of the device over the margins of the defect, and is particularly useful in cases of large defects.
