Course Description

After reading this article, the learner should be able to:
- describe that in selected patients with doubly committed subarterial ventricular septal defects, a perventricular VSD closure device can be successfully delivered using a transthoracic percutaneous approach.
- recognize that a key element of the success of the perventricular percutaneous approach is the use of a separate occluding device to close the puncture site in the right ventricular free wall (the infundibulum).
- indicate that the medium term success of the periventricular percutaneous VSD closure approach is quite good with no residual defect, valve insufficiency, or outflow tract obstruction at one year follow-up.
