Perventricular double-device closure of VSD

What is it about?

Wide-spaced perimemebranous VSD is difficult to close completely by percutaneous technique. But by Perventricular technique we can close all of holes easily. Perventricular technique is performed by short sub-xiphoid incisions (usually 2-4 cm) under single TEE guidance. This short incisions looks cosmetically good outcome. The patients don't need go through radiation exposure or no need to contrast media administration.

Why is it important?

It is difficult to close wide-spaced multi-hole perimembranous VSD by percutaneous technique using single device. If the patient concern about cosmetic result, this is the technique of choice.
