Ventricular septal defect closure in a small children with the Amplatzer Duct Occluder II.
ABSTRACT Transcatheter technique for muscular ventricular septal defect closure remains challenging, particularly in small patients. We report the successful use of the low profile Amplatzer Duct Occluder II for multiple ventricular septal defect closure in an infant with D-transposition of the great arteries, status postpulmonary artery banding. The multiple apical ventricular septal defects were successfully closed with two Amplatzer Duct Occluder II and one Amplatzer Muscular Ventricular Septal Defect Occluder during two interventional catheterizations. The patient subsequently underwent successful surgical repair.
