A 27 year-old male with dextro-transposition of great arteries had Senning atrial switch repair in childhood and dualchamber pacemaker placement for sinus node dysfunction in adulthood. Transthoracic echocardiography showed a lead in the systemic ventricle. Multidetector computed tomography showed the lead perforating the baffl e into the systemic ventricle. The lead was extracted, and a new lead was placed in the pulmonary ventricle. The iatrogenic baffl e leak was percutaneously closed with an Amplatzer septal occluder device using intracardiac echocardiography (ICE). We report the fi rst use of ICE for baffl e leak closure, which provided good defi nition of the complex anatomy and guided the procedure.
