OBJECTIVE In infants undergoing closure of perimembranous ventricular septal defects, cardiopulmonary bypass remains one of the factors that prolongs hospital stay and morbidity. A new technique was used to close the defects under echocardiographic guidance without cardiopulmonary bypass to prevent the deleterious effects of bypass. METHODS Recently, the Amplatzer membranous ventricular septal defect device (AGA Medical Corp, Golden Valley, Minn) was introduced. The device has a double-disc… CONTINUE READING
