Abstract

Acquired and congenital left ventricular to right atrial communication is rare, but nowadays, the frequency of the iatrogenic subgroup is increasing. Successful transcatheter closure of these defects with different devices has been reported. Herein, we presented successful closure of left ventricular to right atrial communication with Amplatzer Duct Occluder 2 after attempting to close with a failed Amplatzer Vascular Plug II device in a 7-year-old girl. This report supports that transcatheter closure of iatrogenic Gerbode defect with Amplatzer Duct Occluder 2 device is safe and effective.
