Objectives: The aim of this report is to describe our experience with closure of perimembranous ventricular septal defects (PMVSD) with aneurysm using the Amplatzer Duct Occluder I (ADO I). Background: Atrio-ventricular block (AVB) remains the most troublesome complication of device closure of PMVSDs. Many PMVSDs are associated with an aneurysm that protrudes into the right ventricle. We believe that devices implanted entirely within the VSD aneurysm avoid the risk of AVB. Methods: A retrospective analysis of patients with PMVSD and aneurysm who underwent attempted ADO I device closure between 3/2004 and 8/2010 [Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego (n = 16), Mattel Children's Hospital at UCLA (n = 4), and Straub Hospital in Honolulu (n = 1)]. Results: Twenty-one patients (16 male) with PMVSD and aneurysm underwent cardiac catheterization for the purpose of VSD closure using an ADO I. Nineteen patients had successful ADO I implantation with the following devices: 10/8 (n = 8), 8/6 (n = 7), 6/4 (n = 3) and 12/10 (n = 2). The procedure was aborted in 2 cases due to temporary AVB and ventricular ectopy during catheterization. One patient developed hemolysis due device malposition and had surgical device retrieval and VSD closure. One patient had new trivial tricuspid regurgitation and in 5/19 the tricuspid regurgitation improved post device closure. Transient accelerated junctional rhythm occurred within 24 hr in 4 patients and nonsustained slow ventricular tachycardia occurred in one patient. At latest follow-up (up to 6 years, median 1.9 years) 11/18 had no residual shunt, 4/18 had trivial and 3/18 small residual shunt. No AVB has been observed. Conclusions: Percutaneous closure of PMVSD with aneurysm using the ADO I appears to have acceptable efficacy and risk. Atrio-ventricular block in up to mid-term follow up was not encountered. © 2011 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
