Abstract

Background.- Transcatheter perimembranous ventricular septal defect (pmVSD) closure remains challenging and is seldom used in France given the risk of atrioventricular block (AVB). pmVSD closure with the Nit-Occlud Le VSD coil was recently introduced in France as an alternative to occluder devices.
