Atrial septal defect (ASD) with rheumatic mitral stenosis is popularly known as eponym of Lutembacher syndrome. Definitive treatment of Lutembacher syndrome has been under the purview of cardiothoracic surgeons but with changing times, transcatheter treatment has been possible. We present a case of 38-year-old female with Lutembacher syndrome treated transcatheterly. This case attests the feasibility of transcatheter treatment in selected group of patients of Lutembacher treatment.
