Abstract

The majority of patients with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries, also known as transposition of the great arteries {S,L,L} have ventricular septal defects (VSD), most commonly perimembranous VSD (pmVSD). Transcatheter device closure of pmVSD in these patients has not been widely described. We present a case of device closure of pmVSD in L-TGA with an Amplatzer Duct Occluder II (ADOII) device using a deployment starting in the subpulmonary left ventricle. The case demonstrates some of the technical advantages of the ADOII device for VSD closure, specifically its low profile, symmetric shape, and soft material. These characteristics are advantageous in closing conventional pmVSD but are especially useful in patients with challenging anatomic substrates.
