Amplatzer ductal occluders were used for percutaneous closure of perimembranous ventricular septal defects with associated ventricular septal aneurysm in three patients. The device was well positioned and the ventricular left-to-right shunt was significantly decreased in all three patients. The procedure was tolerated well without complications in each case.
