Journal of the Saudi Heart Association

Objectives: This retrospective study sought to determine the feasibility of transcatheter atrial septal defect device closure in patients less than 15 kg, as well as to assess complication rates and the reasons for unsuccessful device closure.

Background: In general, the risks associated with transcatheter atrial septal defect device closure are believed and reported to be relatively low, but the evidence stems from trials involving adults and older children. Current guidelines do not recommend atrial defect closure in device closure in children < 15kg, due to limited data available for feasibility and safety of device closure in this group of patients.

Methods: Retrospective review of all patients who underwent elective transcatheter closure of ostium secundum atrial septal defect between September …

Journal of the Saudi Heart Association

Objectives: This study aimed to determine the risk factors for the occurrence of arrhythmias after either transcatheter or surgical closure of atrial septal defect. Methods: This prospective study included 150 patients admitted for transcatheter or surgical closure of atrial septal defect. Transthoracic echocardiography together with a twelve-leads ECG were done during 1 and 3 months follow up. The paired T, chi-square and Logistic regression tests were used to detect any association between any arrhythmias and factors that may affect its occurrence. Results: One-hundred and twenty-three patients had percutaneous device closure while the remaining 27 patients had surgical closure. The youngest …
