Abstract

Left ventricle-right atrial communication could be congenital (Gerbode defect) or acquired as a complication of surgery or infective endocarditis and leads to volume overloading of pulmonary circulation. Two types, direct and indirect types are known depending on the involvement of septal tricuspid leaflet. Transcatheter closure of this defect is feasible and appears an attractive alternative to surgical management. Various devices like Amplatzer duct occluder I, II, Muscular ventricular septal defect device etc. have been used to close this defect. We report two patients, a preteen boy with direct left ventricle-right atrial communication as post operative complication and an adult female with indirect communication who underwent transcatheter closure with Cera duct occluder (Lifetech Scientific (Shenzhen), China).
