The Amplatzer portfolio of structural intervention occluders provides minimally invasive treatment options for the closure of congenital heart defects and for stroke risk reduction. The closure procedures are performed through a transcatheter approach, which prevents the need for open heart surgery and enables faster recovery times.
Amplatzer™ Septal Occluders are the standard of care for minimally invasive atrial septal defect (ASD) closure.1,2 These double-disc occluders are comprised of nitinol mesh and polyester material. They are designed to securely appose the septal wall on each side of the defect and create a platform for tissue in-growth after implantation.
Ventricular septal defects (VSD) are the most commonly found congenital heart defect.3 One subtype of these defects is muscular VSD. If left untreated it can lead to pulmonary hypertension and/or congestive heart failure.4 The Amplatzer™ Muscular VSD Occluders are designed for complete closure of these type of defects.
