Peratrial device closure of perimembranous ventricular septal defects through a right parasternal approach.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Both percutaneous and perventricular device closures of perimembranous ventricular septal defects (PmVSDs) have drawbacks. This study evaluates the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of peratrial device closure of a PmVSD using a probe-assisted delivery system. METHODS Seventy-three patients (peratrial group) were enrolled in this study. A 1.5… (More)
