PERCUTANEOUS CLOSURE OF HOLE IN HEART

Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) and Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) are the most common holes in the heart that can be detected via Echocardiography.

Percutaneous device closure is an effective, safe, and commonly employed alternative to surgical closure if you are detected with ASD or PFO.

How Is Percutaneous Closure Done?

The device is folded into a special catheter and inserted into a vein in the leg. Using a guide wire, the device is advanced through the atrial septum. When the catheter is in the correct position, the device slowly is pushed out of the catheter until it covers the defect. The device bridges the septal defect. Over time, heart tissue grows over the implant, and it becomes part of the heart, permanently correcting the defect.
