The article discusses the nature of atrioventricular septal defect (AVSD). The presence of a common atrioventricular junction as compared to the separate right and left atrioventricular junction in the normal heart serves as the essential morphological hallmark of AVSD. In patients with this abnormality, the left ventricular outflow tract is elongated and appears relatively narrow. The spectrum of ASVD diagnosed antenally differs with that diagnosed postnatally.

    We herein report the advantages of retrograde ventricular septal defect (VSD) closure using a muscular VSD device for perimembranous VSDs. Perimembranous VSDs are conventionally closed by an antegrade technique (arteriovenous looping technique) using a patent ductus arteriosus or asymmetric...

    Background: Transcatheter closure of a perimembranous ventricular septal defect (PmVSD) is usually performed with an asymmetric Amplatzer occluder, which is not an ideal device. Experience with the use of the Amplatzer muscular ventricular septal defect occluder (MVSO) to close selected PmVSDs...
