Atrial septal defect (ASD) and patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) are common congenital heart defects and usually isolate. The combination of these two defects is infrequent. Nowadays, both defects are amenable to transcatheter closure, without surgery. However, both defects by transcather closure was rarely reported. Here we report that two children with ASD and PDA benefited from combined interventional therapy using the Amplatzer septal occluder for the ASD and Gianturco coils for the PDA. Based on our limited experience, closing the PDA before the ASD may be a better option.
