Atrial Septal Defect and Ventricular Septal Defect in Children

Transcatheter repair

A transcatheter repair, also called transcatheter device closure, is usually recommended for an atrial septal defect. During this procedure, a pediatric interventional cardiologist makes an incision in the groin, inserts a catheter, and funnels a small mesh patch through the catheter and up to the hole in the heart. Over time, the child’s own heart tissue grows over the patch.
