OBJECTIVES To evaluate prospective single centre experience of mid-term safety and efficacy of perventricular device closure of isolated large muscular ventricular septal defect (mVSD) in high-risk infants. BACKGROUND Surgical closures of large mVSD in infants represent a challenge with significant morbidity. METHODS Between August 2008-2010, perventricular closure was attempted in 24 infants of 6.01 ± 2.37 months age and 4.27 ± 0.56 kg weight under TEE guidance. RESULTS The device was… CONTINUE READING
