GAMBETTA, Juan Carlos et al. Cierre percutáneo de la comunicación interauricular con aneurisma del septum: A propósito de un caso clínico. Arch. Pediatr. Urug. [online]. 2008, vol.79, n.4, pp.308-312. ISSN 1688-1249.

Summary The closure of interauricular septal defects type ostium secundum through percutaneous implantation devices is nowadays done in a secure and efficient manner. The Amplatzer ASD (AGA Minneapolis USA) is the authorized device used in our media. The success in its use is determined by the appropriate choice of the patients. We present the case of a 14 year old adolescent (female) with ostium secundum and a large interauricular septum aneurysm, which fulfilled the selection criteria and showed no contraindications for the closure with percutaneous device implantation. The septum aneurysm is not a contraindication for closure with a device; however it represents a challenge in its manoeuvering and placement. The closure was performed successfully and without further complications. The patient was discharged 18 hours after the procedure, without residual shunt
