To discuss suitable criteria for the application of asymmetric Amplatzer occluders for perimembranous ventricular septal defects (pmVSDs).
Treatments for perimembranous ventricular septal defects (pmVSD) mainly include conventional surgical repair (CSR), transcatheter device closure (TDC), and perventricular device closure (PDC). We aimed to perform a network meta-analysis to compare the three approaches in patients with pmVSD.
We report the case of a 23-year-old woman with a not yet described (to the best of our knowledge) association of left ventricle non-compaction with both atrial and ventricular defects. Family genetic survey concluded to, a probably sporadic, E101K gene mutation.
