Transcatheter device implantation has become an attractive alternative to surgery in the closure of atrial septal defects in selected patients. However, it can lead to early and late sequelae, some of them life threatening. For example, 79 days before her admission to our emergency department with sudden-onset respiratory distress and respiratory arrest (leading to cardiac tamponade and rupture), a 22-year-old woman had undergone percutaneous closure of an atrial septal defect. We describe the damage and its treatment...

BACKGROUND: After left atrial appendage closure (LAAC), various antithrombotic protocols have been suggested, but the optimal post-procedural antithrombotic strategy is still under debate. AIMS: To investigate the efficacy and safety of LAAC with an AMPLATZER™ Cardiac Plug (ACP) device (St. Jude Medical, Minneapolis, MN, USA) followed by single antiplatelet therapy. METHODS: Consecutive patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation and a contraindication for oral anticoagulants who underwent LAAC with an ACP device between 2012 and 2014 in two French centres were included...

Popliteal artery pseudoaneurysm is uncommon. They usually result from penetrating or blunt trauma, arterial reconstructive surgery, invasive diagnostic or surgical orthopedic procedures. They can cause arterial thrombosis and limb ischeamia. We report a 53 year old Chinese gentleman with popliteal artery pseudoaneurysm who presented with right lower limb numbness and paralysis in toes extension. He gave a history of acupuncture treatment around the popliteal fossa of the affected limb. Clinical examination revealed a pulsatile mass in the popliteal fossa...

BACKGROUND: Currently, N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) and its physiologically active counterpart, BNP, are most frequently used as biomarkers for diagnosis, prognosis, and disease monitoring of heart failure (HF). Commercial NT-proBNP and BNP immunoassays cross-react to varying degrees with unprocessed proBNP, which is also found in the circulation. ProBNP processing and immunoassay response are related to O-linked glycosylation of NT-proBNP and proBNP. There is a clear and urgent need to identify the glycosylation sites in the endogenously circulating peptides requested by the community to gain further insights into the different naturally occurring forms...

OBJECTIVES: Percutaneous ostium secundum atrial septal defect (ASD II) closure has become the standard of care for treatment of congenital ASD II in adults. Nevertheless, patients are frequently ineligible for this technique due to challenging morphology. In such cases, closure via minimally invasive cardiac surgery (MICS) is an appropriate treatment option. The aim of this study is to compare outcomes of MICS and use of a percutaneous Amplatzer septal occluder (ASO) device for treatment of ASD II in adults...

A 59-year-old male with a history of mitral valve replacement several years previously was admitted to the authors' institution with symptoms of advanced heart failure. Echocardiography showed a severe paravalvular dehiscence and surgery was discouraged due to high perioperative risk. A first transcatheter leak closure was unsuccessful despite the correct deployment of various occluding devices. A second percutaneous attempt was carried out with implantation of three Amplatzer Vascular Plug® III devices (five occluders were positioned in total within the oblong defect), leading to a mild residual leakage...

Patients with locally advanced pancreatic cancer who undergo distal pancreatectomy with resection of the celiac axis (CA) are at risk for postoperative hepatic or gastric ischemia if collateral blood flow from the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) via the gastroduodenal artery is insufficient. This study presents a technique for preoperative angiographic evaluation of these collateral vessels by using an AMPLATZER Vascular Plug to temporarily occlude the CA or common hepatic artery while simultaneously performing digital subtraction angiography of the SMA...

AIMS: To compare in a observational study acute and 12-month results of percutaneous closure of patent foramen ovale (PFO) with two occluder devices. METHODS AND RESULTS: Between June 2007 and October 2014, 406 consecutive patients (48.1±13.3 years, 243 women) underwent percutaneous PFO closure either with the Amplatzer (n=179) or the Figulla (n=227) device after a stroke or a transient ischemic attack ascribed to the PFO. A right-to- left shunt grade >1 was previously detected in all patients and atrial septal aneurysm was present in 111 (27...

INTRODUCTION: The persistent ductus arteriosus remains a common congenital pathology. Although percutaneous closure of wide channels using an Amplatzer Duct Occluder is an attractive alternative to the surgical treatment, this prosthesis is not recommended for infants weighing less than 6kg. AIM OF THE STUDY: The objective was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of this prosthesis in low-weight children. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The records of children weighing less than 6kg who underwent closure with the Amplatzer Duct Occluder prosthesis between January 2010 and December 2014 were retrospectively analyzed...

PURPOSE: To report the successful treatment of a type IIIb endoleak with an Amplatzer Septal Occluder. CASE REPORT: A 76-year-old man was found to have a type IIIb endoleak in the proximal body component of a fenestrated graft at 4-year surveillance imaging; the leak was associated with rapid aneurysm growth. The anatomy of the graft and position of the fabric defect precluded treatment by relining with a secondary endograft. The defect was demonstrated with catheter angiography, sized with an angioplasty balloon, and repaired using an Amplatzer Septal Occluder...

BACKGROUND Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL) is the standard procedure for patients with renal stones over 2 cm in diameter. We analyzed complications after this procedure focusing on two different methods of tract dilation. MATERIAL AND METHODS Between August 2008 and April 2016 222 percutaneous nephrolithotomies were performed in a total of 208 patients. The Group I (n=123) comprised patients where Alken dilatators were used, while Group II (n=99) comprised patients where Amplatz dilators were used. Efficacy was examined based on ultrasound and x-ray examination one month after the procedure...

AIMS: To evaluate safety and efficacy of left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO) with the Amplatzer Cardiac Plug (ACP) or Amulet using Aspirin (ASA) alone as post-implant antithrombotic treatment. METHODS AND RESULTS: Single-center, prospective, non-randomized study on LAAO with the ACP or Amulet in a consecutive cohort (n=110) treated by ASA alone post-implantation. Primary outcome was device-related thrombosis, while secondary outcomes were ischemic stroke or major bleeding...

AIMS: To assess the safety and efficacy of percutaneous closure of paravalvular prosthetic leak (PVL) and to identify the predictors of procedural success and early complications. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 514 first-attempt percutaneous PVL closure in 469 patients were included in 19 centres. Technical and procedural success was achieved in 86.6% and 73.2% of the patients respectively. In a multivariate analysis the independent predictors for procedural success in mitral lesions were the type of device used (Amplatzer AVP III vs others, HR 2...

OBJECTIVES: The goal of this study was to describe early and midterm outcomes of extremely premature newborns (EPNs) who underwent transcatheter echocardiographically guided patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) closure. BACKGROUND: Surgical ligation of PDA in EPNs confers significant risk for procedural morbidity and adverse long-term outcomes. METHODS: The Amplatzer Vascular Plug II was used in all cases. Post-ligation syndrome was defined using previously published parameters...
