We report the clinical outcome of a 46-year-old man referred for percutaneous closure of an atrial septal defect under transthoracic echocardiographic and fluoroscopic guidance, whose upper left pulmonary vein was erroneously obliterated using an Amplatzer atrial septal defect occluder. Various medical conditions have been associated with pulmonary vein stenosis including dyspnea on exertion or at rest, cough, and hemoptysis. However, there were no short- or long-term symptoms in this patient.
