Abstract

Marfan syndrome patients have connective tissue abnormalities that predispose them to intracardiac defects and postoperative complications. We present a case of late onset ASD device failure secondary to device movement within the atrial septum in a girl with Marfan syndrome. This case study suggests that further studies are necessary to determine the optimal device and approach for ASD repair in this patient cohort.
