Long-term follow up of secundum atrial septal defect closure with the amplatzer septal occluder
The closures of ASDs and PFOs were performed using either the CardioSEAL or the Amplatzer septal occluder
Treatment of atrial septal defects in symptomatic children aged less than 2 years of age using the Amplatzer septal occluder
Objectives: To determine in paediatric patients with atrial septal defects whether differences in P wave dispersion occurred with transcatheter closures using the Amplatzer septal occluder
Intracardiac or transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is essential for percutaneous closure of ASD using Amplatzer septal occluder
Doctors closed the hole by using the Amplatzer Septal Occluder
, a relatively new non-surgical technique.
Amplatzer septal occluder
(ASO) is one of the most popular devices for transcatheter closure of atrial secundum defect (Thanopoulos et al.
The AMPLATZER Septal Occluder
offers Japanese physicians and their patients a less-invasive alternative to cardiac surgery for occluding, or closing, ASD.
The high-tech titanium device, called an Amplatzer Septal Occluder
, looks like a yo-yo and can stretch, swell, and position itself to plug a hole in the heart.
Transcatheter closure of secundum atrial defects using the new self-centering Amplatzer septal occluder
The incidence of atrial fibrillation was found to be almost as common after transcatheter closure using Amplatzer septal occluder
(ASO) (14% of patients) compared with surgical repair (16% of patients) (4-6).
