BACKGROUND: The traditional treatment of subarterial ventricular septal defect (VSD) is open heart surgery. This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility, safety and outcome of transcatheter closure with the Amplatzer duct occluder (ADO). METHODS: Between March 2012 and June 2015, a total of 16 patients (8 male and 8 female) with subarterial VSD who underwent transcatheter closure with the ADO were enrolled retrospectively. Their age ranged from 3.0 to 65.6 years, with the median of 35...

Long term follow up studies have shown that transcatheter closure of perimembranous Ventricular Septal Defect (PmVSD) can be done safely and successfully. One of the most serious complications of VSD device closure is complete atrioventricular block which has been reported in 3-18% is various studies following VSD device closure. Amplatzar Duct Occluder II (ADO-II) device is now commonly being used for closure of small to moderate sized PmVSD. Complete heart block has not been reported with ADO-II device. We are reporting 2 cases of complete heart block following transcatheter closure of PmVSD using ADO-II device where sinus rhythm was established following early surgical removal of the device...

Congenital coronary artery fistula is an uncommon anomaly. Transcatheter coil embolization or Amplatzer vascular plug device closure of fistula is often done in symptomatic patients with safe accessibility to the feeding coronary artery. Embolization of Amplatzer vascular plug device is rare. We report an 11-year-old male child who presented to us with increasing shortness of breath for 7 years. He had a history of Amplatzer vascular plug device closure of right coronary-cameral fistula 8 years back. Echocardiography demonstrated a dilated aneurysmal right coronary artery with turbulent jet entering into the right ventricle (RV) and device embolized into the left pulmonary artery (LPA)...

BACKGROUND: An aberrant origin of the left coronary artery (LCA) from the right coronary cusp (RCC) is an extremely rare congenital anomaly. We here report on successful percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in a patient presenting with acute coronary syndrome and an aberrant origin of the LCA from the RCC. CASE PRESENTATION: A 50-year-old man presented at our emergency department with recurrent resting chest pain. Following unsuccessful attempts at visualizing the left coronary artery using Judkins left and Amplatz catheters, an aortogram using a pigtail catheter suggested anomalous left coronary artery origin and showed a significant occlusive lesion at proximal left anterior descending artery...

REVIEW
Rosie Jasper, James C Blankenship
In October of 2016 the United States Food and Drug Administration approved the Amplatzer Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) occluder device for use in patients with cryptogenic stroke, to reduce the risk of recurrent stroke. This event followed 15years of off-label use of atrial septal occluder devices, 3 randomized trials, and enormous controversy over the efficacy of this procedure. While none of the trials reached the primary endpoint needed to prove the efficacy of PFO closure in preventing recurrent stroke, meta-analyses and 5-year follow-up of 1 trial suggest that PFO closure decreases the risk of recurrent stroke, especially in sub-groups with large shunts and atrial septal aneurysms, and especially when the Amplatzer device (rather than other devices) is used...

Left ventricle-right atrial communication could be congenital (Gerbode defect) or acquired as a complication of surgery or infective endocarditis and leads to volume overloading of pulmonary circulation. Two types, direct and indirect types are known depending on the involvement of septal tricuspid leaflet. Transcatheter closure of this defect is feasible and appears an attractive alternative to surgical management. Various devices like Amplatzer duct occluder I, II, Muscular ventricular septal defect device etc...

Atrial septal defects of Ostium Secundum type with suitable anatomy and margins are commonly closed with septal occluder devices. With the increasing number of catheterization laboratories and increasing availability of different devices, the device closure procedure is very commonly performed in different institutes. Embolization of the septal occluder is one of the most dreaded complications of this procedure, which usually occurs in the early hours or days after the procedure. We report a case of silent embolization of the Amplatzer septal occluder, detected seven months after its use to close an Ostium Secundum atrial septal defect, which was detected during pre-anaesthetic evaluation and echocardiography for non-cardiac surgery...

We present two cases of Amplatzer® device deployment that exhibited long-term failure necessitating surgical correction. The first case illustrates recanalization of a ruptured Valsalva aneurysm with worsening aortic insufficiency after percutaneous repair with the Amplatzer Vascular Plugs and Amplatzer duct occluder, while the second case illustrates recanalization after deployment of the Amplatzer septal occluder in a patient with a pseudoaneursym in a bovine aorta after type I aortic dissection repair. These two cases illustrate the potential long-term complications and limitations in durability with these devices...

BACKGROUND: 2D-transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is routinely performed to guide percutaneous ASD closure in children. We aimed to assess whether two-dimensional (2D)-transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) is a safe alternative for assessment and guidance of atrial septal defect (ASD) closure in unselected children. METHODS: We performed a retrospective single-center study including 389 consecutive children aged less than 15-year-old who underwent percutaneous ASD closure under 2D-TEE (1998-2005, n=133) or 2D-TTE (2005-2014, n=256)...

BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common supraventricular tachyarrhythmia. The percutaneous left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO) may be considered for the stroke prophylaxis in patients with nonvalvular AF (NVAF), especially in contraindications for oral anticoagulants (OAC) or high risk of bleeding. The data about implantation, safety, efficacy and follow-up are limited. Moreover, there are no studies on patients with NVAF and heart failure with severe left ventricular systolic dysfunction (left ventricular ejection fraction - LVEF ≤ 35%)...
