Multiple muscular ventricular septal defects treated with a single device have been reported before, but the way of choosing a suitable occluder is not well described. Implantation of an oversized device might lead to potential side effects. We described our experience with a single device to close two nearby muscular ventricular septal defects perventricularly, and specifically the decision-making process used to choose the suitable occluder.
