Transcatheter closure of an interatrial septal defect (ASD) with a CardioSEAL device was successfully performed on 12 Taiwanese children. There were five boys and seven girls, aged from 3.6-13.9 (8.3 ± 3.2) years and with body weight of 15-57 (33.7 ± 14.7) kgs. After one year of follow-up studies, which included physical examination, ECG, chest X-ray and echocardiography, complete closure of ASD was achieved in nine (75%) patients. Two children with a trivial residual shunt were asymptomatic and without audible cardiac murmur. A girl had a small residual left to right atrial shunt by color Doppler echocardiography, but without audible cardiac murmur. There were no immediate or intermediate complications. Transcatheter implantation of the CardioSEAL device is a safe and proper treatment for children with non-complicated small to medium secundum ASD.
