Transcatheter atrial septal defect (ASD)closure is a widely recognized solution for ASDS. However, information is limited about the use of this treatment for large defects. Here we report a closure of a large ostium secundum ASD (OS-ASD) at Gulbarga Heart Foundation by Dr. Veeraj Kalburgi and Dr. Sudeep Verma. The ASD was measured 32 mm on trans-esophageal echo (TEE) and closed with a 38 mm device (Shanghai Shape Memory Alloy, China).
A 38-year-old female was admitted into hospital with discomfort in the chest.
