 en Simultaneous Transcatheter Closure of Ventricular Septal Defect and Pulmonary Valvuloplasty
Ardakani, Mostafa Behjati; Haddadzadeh, Mahdi & Rajaei, Shahrokh


Background: Transcatheter balloon valvuloplasty has been the accepted first line treatment for congenital pulmonic stenosis (PS) in children. Transcatheter closure of perimembranous ventricular septal defect (VSD) with Amplatzer VSD occluder is an alternative to surgical repair.
Case Presentation: A 12 year old boy presented with history of exertional dyspnea and atypical chest pain. Physical findings were suggestive of severe pulmonic stenosis. Transthoracic echocardiography, right and left ventricular angiography showed medium to large sized perimembranous VSD and severe valvar pulmonary stenosis. Transcatheter closure of VSD was done first so as to avoid large left to right shunt across VSD after balloon pulmonary valvuplasty.
Conclusion: We demonstrated the feasibility and success in treating combined ventricular septal defect and severe pulmonary valve stenosis with transcatheter interventional procedure in the same session.
