Abstract

Transcatheter closure of complex multiple atrial septal defects (ASDs) remains a challenge. We describe our clinical experience with staged device deployment in a patient with multiple ASDs using four Amplatzer septal occluder devices. Three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography imaging contributed not only to the therapeutic guidance of successful device deployment but also to the decision making for the staged device delivery approach in a case of morphologically complex multiple ASDs.
