Muscular ventricular septal defect (mVSD) transcatheter occlusion technique is an established and preferred treatment modality and has become an alternative to surgery under extracorporeal circulation. But in small infants with large size of delivery assembly vis-à-vis small size of vessel caliber, it becomes not only technically challenging, but also possesses serious procedure-related complications. Perventricular device closure of such VSD on beating heart is an alternative. In this study, we aimed to present the role of intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in successful perventricular closure of mVSD in a small infant.
