    Objectives: This study was aimed to evaluate our clinical experience and investigate results of transcatheter closure of atrial septal defect patients in our clinic during the past two years. Material and methods: Retrospectively 24 patients (16 female, 8 male) undergoing transcatheter atrial...

    Atrial septal defect closure is now routinely performed using a percutaneous approach under echocardiographic guidance. Centrally located, secundum defects are ideal for device closure but there is considerable morphological variation in size and location of the defects. A small proportion of...

    Abstract: Percutaneous closure of the secundum type atrial septal defects is becoming increasingly popular. We report the case of a 49-year-old man who presented for an unusual embolization of an Amplatzer® occluder (AO) 6 weeks after a percutaneous closure of his secundum type atrial septal...

    In selected patients, transcatheter closure of atrial septal defects with the Amplatzer Septal Occluder has yielded excellent results. However, there is a slight risk of device embolization after deployment. We report the case of a 26-year-old woman in whom an embolized Amplatzer device was...

    The Amplatzer atrial septal defect occlusion device has gained popularity for the nonoperative closure of secundum-type defects. We describe a case of multiple atrial septal defects that were "consolidated'" into a single defect using blade atrial septostomy for successful closure with single...

    Cobrahead deformity is a known (but uncommon) phenomenon associated with the left atrial disc of the Amplatzer or Occlutech Figulla septal occluder device during percutaneous transcatheter atrial septal defect closure. It has also been postulated that the right atrial disc of the amplatzer...

    Migration and embolization of the Amplatzer septal occluder (ASO) have been reported. However, there is only limited information on the methods of systematic retrieval of these devices. In this report, we describe the a case of a 4 year old girl who underwent closure of her atrial septal defect...

    Successful transseptal puncture adjacent to a single Amplatzer atrial septal closure device is well described. Rarely multiple Amplatzer devices may be required to close defects in the interatrial septum. We report on successful double transseptal puncture adjacent to multiple Amplatzer atrial...
