The aim of this study was to define characteristics of those patients who are referred for device closure of an Atrial septal defect (ASD), but identified to "crossover" surgery. All patients who underwent surgical and device (Amplatzer or Helex occluder) closures of secundum ASDs from 2001 to 2010 were reviewed and organized into three groups: surgical closure, device closure, and "crossover" group. 369 patients underwent ASD closure (265 device, 104 surgical). 42 of the 265 patients referred for device closure "crossed over" to the surgical group at various stages of the catheterization procedure...

Congenital renal artery aneurysm is uncommon. Moreover, renal artery aneurysm concomitant with a congenital renal arteriovenous fistula is extremely rare. Transarterial embolization is the first-line treatment for these conditions. We report a case of a patient with congenital renal artery aneurysm concomitant with a congenital renal arteriovenous fistula of the upper polar left renal artery which was successfully treated by transarterial embolization with coil, glue, and Amplatzer vascular plug.

A 6.5-year-old male Border Collie presented for transcatheter closure of an atrial septal defect due to exercise intolerance and cyanosis while working and training at altitude. A small, left-to-right shunting secundum atrial septal defect was confirmed with no evidence of significant right-sided volume overload. Pulmonary hypertension with subsequent right-to-left interatrial shunting occurring during exercise at high altitude was suspected and prompted the closure of the defect due to the dog's continued athletic requirements...

Prosthetic valve thrombosis (PVT) is an increasingly recognized complication of bioprosthetic valve replacement, often resulting in abnormal hemodynamic, endothelial, and hemostatic conditions. Bioprosthetic PVT may lead to significant hemodynamic and clinical effects. In hemodynamically stable patients, first-line treatment for bioprosthetic PVT is systemic anticoagulation. However, concomitant cardiovascular pathology may lead to additional clinical sequalae that requires acute therapeutic interventions. We describe two cases in which bioprosthetic PVT leads to hemodynamically significant intracardiac shunting through pre-existing patent foramen ovales requiring percutaneous closure with a Cribriform AMPLATZER occluder device...

OBJECTIVES: Over the last few decades different strategies have been proposed to treat persistent ductal patency in premature infants. The advent of the Amplatzer Duct Occluder II Additional Size (ADOIIAS) provided the potential to close the patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). Opinions differ on the significance and treatment of PDA in premature neonates. Because surgical ligation and medical therapy both have their drawbacks, interventional catheterisation can be considered as an alternative means of closing the ductus arteriosus...

the use of amplatzer occluder family in daily clinical practice has already overcome on-label indications, with growing clinical experience and the technological evolution of devices. Areas covered: We present the case of a patient with a very rare complication following proximal aortic surgery treated using a unique strategy. A huge pseudoaneurysm around an ascending aortic prosthesis ruptured into the right pulmonary artery. A hybrid treatment strategy consisting of percutaneous closure of the fistula followed by cardiosurgery was chosen due to the patient's poor haemodynamic condition...

Isolated pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (PAVM) are rare, but can be responsible for paradoxical embolic events. It is important to recognise these situations early and intervene quickly to attain the best outcome. We describe the case of a 45-year-old woman with a long-standing history of migraines with aura who presented to the emergency department with left-sided weakness and slurred speech. Work-up was unclear and she was diagnosed with cryptogenic stroke. Follow-up transoesophageal echocardiogram was suggestive of an atrial septal defect, though no clear defect was evident...

AIMS: Postdeployment mutual orientation between the disk and the lobe in patients undergoing left atrial appendage closure with Amplatzer cardiac plug/Amulet device might impact on the risk of residual leak during follow-up. Thus, we evaluated in an exploratory, pilot study whether the degree of intradevice misalignment, measured by cardiac computed tomography (CT), discriminates the occurrence of peridevice leak in those patients. METHODS: All patients (N = 15) undergoing percutaneous left atrial appendage closure with those specific devices between April 2013 and January 2015 were prospectively included...

BACKGROUND: The closure of an atrial septal defect is procedure that is frequently performed in both adults and children. Currently, the most commonly used devices are the Amplatzer® and Occlutech® Figulla® atrial septal occluders. Studies conducted in adults have shown that these devices all have similar performance efficiency for the closure of secundum atrial septal defects. No study to date has examined their performance in the pediatric population. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate and compare the performance of Amplatzer® and Occlutech® Figulla® atrial septal occluders in the pediatric population...

INTRODUCTION: Gluteal artery aneurysms (GAAs) are rare, accounting for less than 1% of all arterial aneurysms. Most of them are post-traumatic in nature and involve the superior gluteal artery (SGA), while injuries of the inferior gluteal artery (IGA) have been reported less frequently. We report an unusual case of a patient with double saccular GAA of unknown etiology, involving both the SGA and IGA, successfully treated by endovascular embolization. CASE REPORT: A 80-year-old man referred to our hospital complaining of the progressive onset of left buttock pain and swelling exacerbated by sitting position in the last 4 months...

Concern for device erosion following transcatheter treatment of atrial septal defects (TC-ASD) led in 2012 to a United States Food and Drug Administration panel review and changes in the instructions for use of the Amplatzer Septal Occluder (ASO) device. No studies have assessed the effect of these changes on real-world practice. To this end a multicenter observational study was performed to evaluate trends in the treatment of ASD. METHODS: A retrospective observational study was performed using data from the Pediatric Health Information Systems database of all patients with isolated ASD undergoing either TC-ASD or operative ASD closure (O-ASD) from January 1, 2007, to September 30, 2015, hypothesizing that the propensity to pursue O-ASD increased beginning in 2013...
