Frequently asked questions about Device Closure of ASD (Amplatzer Septal Occluder)

There are several techniques for ASD closure. It may require open-heart surgery. Sometimes, it can be accomplished with a minimally invasive procedure called cardiac catheterization using a catheter threaded from a vein in your groin up to your heart.

The hole can be:

  • Covered by a patch made of synthetic material or your own tissue, taken from another area of your heart.
  • Plugged with a closure device
  • Sewn shut with sutures (stitches).

Your healthcare provider will recommend the appropriate technique for you, depending on:

  • Any other heart conditions you may have.
  • The size and location of the hole.
  • Your overall health.

Some medical facilities even use robotic-assisted surgery to repair an ASD.

Your healthcare provider will talk to you about what to expect during recovery. You may have to limit physical activity for a few weeks especially if you have surgical ASD closure. For transcatheter closure, you should be able to resume your normal activity within one week.
