The Amplatzer septal occluder (ASO) has become the device of choice for interventional closure of atrial septal defects (ASDs) in many institutions during the last decades. Although excellent results have been reported for these devices, concerns have arisen about the long term complications. Of these complications, thrombus formation was rarely seen after 1 year in patients. This is the first child patient of a huge thrombus developing on an ASO device detected by transthoracic… CONTINUE READING
