Ventricular septal defect is the most common type of CHD, and transcatheter ventricular septal defect closure has been shown to be an alternative to surgical closure with acceptable mortality and morbidity as well as encouraging results. Short-term and mid-term follow-ups have indicated the safety and efficacy of transcatheter closure, but long-term follow-up results were rare. In this report, we first found that aortic regurgitation occurred in patients 9–12 years following transcatheter closure and regurgitation were gradually increased. The findings indicate that the long-term outcome of transcatheter closure of ventricular septal defect may not be as satisfied as expected.
