We report successful transcatheter correction of a sinus venosus defect in a 72-year-old woman with anomalous pulmonary venous return in a challenging anatomical configuration. The procedure was facilitated by hands-on simulation training on a newly developed, perfused, 3D-printed model.

Keywords: 3D printing; catheterization; complex congenital heart disease; hands on simulation training; sinus venosus defect; stent.
