Nowadays, both defects are amenable to transcatheter closure, without surgery. However, both defects by transcather closure was rarely reported. Here we report that two children with ASD and PDA benefited from combined interventional therapy using the Amplatzer septal occluder for the ASD and Gianturco coils for the PDA.
