Abstract

Iatrogenic perimembranous ventricular septal defect is a rare complication after surgical replacement of the aortic valve, and so transcatheter closure of such a defect is not a routine procedure. We report the successful closure of an iatrogenic perimembranous ventricular septal defect which occurred after the replacement of the aortic valve and ascending aorta. (Cardiol J 2008; 15: 189-191)
