Abstract

Due to the developing technology in pediatric catheterization and increasing experience of pediatric cardiologists, currently transcatheter closure of multiple cardiac defects has become available. The present case report describes a patient who successfully underwent sequential transcatheter closure of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) and muscular ventricular septal defect (VSD). Transcatheter closure of multiple defects is regarded as a reliable and efficient therapeutic option which can be an alternative to surgical treatment in appropriate cases.
