PP-170 ADO II in Percutaneous VSD Closure in Pediatric Patients




Background and Aim


It is hard to find an ideal device to use for every VSD successfully. If inappropriate device was chosen; complication rate increases, procedure time gets longer that prolongs exposure to ionizing radiation. Therefore interventionalists are in the search for new ideal devices. Main aim of our study to show that ADO-II device can be used for small ventricular septal defects successfully, safely with low complication rates.




Material and Methods


Between the dates April 2011- October 2014, 17 VSD closures with ADO-II device. Actually there were 16 patients but one of the patient had 2 perimembranous defects which were closed separately. Patients having muscular and perimembranous VSD with hemodynamically significant left to right shunt detected by clinical examination and echocardiographywere included in the study.
