Abstract

The percutaneous closure of ostium secundum atrial septal defects (ASD) is a well-established procedure. Currently available devices and delivery systems are designed to be used via the femoral venous route. However, an alternative approach needs to be considered in cases of congenital or acquired caval obstruction. We describe a successful transjugular closure of a moderate sized secundum ASD with the Cocoon Septal Occluder in a 37-year-old symptomatic woman with inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombosis, using a novel deployment technique to overcome difficulties, namely maintaining stable sheath position in the left atrium. Percutaneous closure of secundum ASDs via the transjugular approach is safe, feasible and effective and can be a reasonable alternative to surgical closure in patients with failed femoral venous access and not anatomically complex atrial septal defects.
