We present two cases of ATS diagnosed during cardiac examination for murmurs. The first was an 11-year-old boy who had an atypical facial(More)
AIM We sought to investigate the safety and efficacy of Cardio-O-Fix septal occluder (CSO) in percutaneous closure of atrial septal defects (ASD) as compared to the Amplatzer septal occluder (ASO). METHODS A consecutive of 351 patients received transcatheter ASD closure with CSO or ASO from July 2004 to October 2010 were studied. The ASDs were divided(More)
