Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Major adverse events [ Time Frame: till study end ]
    Major adverse events included but were not limited to death during or after the procedure because of complications of the procedure,cAVB requiring pacemaker implantation, thromboembolism, and new-onset valvular regurgitation requiring surgical repair.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Minor adverse events [ Time Frame: Till study end ]
    Minor adverse events included but were not limited to groin hematoma, blood loss requiring transfusion, device embolization with transcatheter removal, any cardiac arrhythmia that required medication, new or increased valvular regurgitation less than two grades, hemolysis requiring medication, fever >38.5°C, rash, and loss of peripheral pulse. These minor adverse events required medical intervention but were not life threatening; they had no long-term sequelae and did not require long-term therapy.

Enrollment: 200
Study Start Date: June 2007
Study Completion Date: July 2012
Primary Completion Date: December 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: occluders
Shanghai pmVSD occluder (LEPU Medical Tech-nology Co, Ltd, Beijing, China) was used in this study.
Device: Shanghai pmVSD occluder
Ventricular Septal Defects Occluders with sizes from 4mm to 20mm.
Other Name: Shanghai pmVSD-O
Procedure: surgery
Patient in this group received open surgical repair of pmVSD.
Other Name: open surgery

Detailed Description:
Perimembranous Ventricular septal defect (VSD) is the most common congenital cardiac malformation and constitutes over 20% of all congenital cardiac disease. Though conventional surgery for VSD is a widely accepted procedure with minimal operative mortality, it carries a small but definite risk of morbidity and mortality associated with cardiopulmonary bypass and surgical closure. The newly appeared transcatheter device closure technique provides an alternative to surgical closure. However, the mid-to-long term effects of this technique using occluders is not clear. The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of transcatheter closure of perimembranous ventricular septal defects using septal occluders.

Ages Eligible for Study:   2 Years to 80 Years   (Child, Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with ventricular septal defects eligible for transcatheter closure.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients less than 2 years old. Patients not suitable for transcatheter closure. Patients comorbid with other diseases.
