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.
Atrial septal defects come in a variety of shapes and sizes. There can often be multiple, or fenestrated, ASDs. Abbott offers two percutaneous, transcatheter occluders for different types of atrial septal defects.
The Amplatzer™ Septal Occluder has a wide waist that centers the device and fills the ASD for optimal occlusion. The transcatheter delivery makes it the proven standard of care for the occlusion of ASDs.
The Amplatzer™ Cribriform Multifenestrated Septal Occluder has a narrow waist, which allows for placement through a central defect, and matched disc diameters that maximize coverage of multiple fenestrations.
