PMID:  11722084     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The midterm follow-up of 2 patients with left ventricle-to-aorta conduit who underwent percutaneous closure with the Amplatzer device is described. Complete occlusion was achieved immediately in 1 patient. In the other patient, a trivial residual shunt was still present after 12 months, but disappeared after 18 months. Occlusion of dysfunctional left ventricle-to-aorta conduits by the Amplatzer device is feasible, provided that enough time is allowed for complete occlusion.
