Senning operation is a surgical treatment for transposition of great arteries that can be complicated by post-procedural atrial or caval baffle leaks. We present a 6-year-old boy with a history of Senning repair for transposition of great arteries, who developed a pulmonary venous baffle leak. Percutaneous baffle leak closure was successfully performed using an Amplatzer septal occluder.

Keywords: Amplatzer septal occluder; atrial switch operation; baffle leak; transposition of great arteries.
