This case report describes a modification in the technique of atrial septal device closure in a patient with atrial septal defect (ASD) with associated atrial septum aneurysm and significant left-to-right shunt through multiple perforations. Graded balloon dilatation of the aneurysm was performed in this patient, as a preamble to successful deployment of a single large Amplatzer atrial septal occluder, closing the ASD completely and entrapping the aneurysm as a whole.
Keywords: Amplatzer device closure, atrial septal defect, balloon dilatation, interatrial septum aneurys
