This study was performed to assess changes in pulmonary function test (PFT) and pulmonary outcome after transcatheter closure of atrial septal defect (ASD) in pediatric patients. A total 55 pediatric patients undergoing transcatheter ASD closure received PFT at baseline (day before ASD closure), and at 3 days and 6 months after procedure. Forced vital capacity (FVC), forced expired volume in 1 sec (FEV(1)), FEV(1) to FVC ratio (FEV(1)/FVC), peak expiratory flow (PEF), and mean forced expiratory… CONTINUE READING
