• Percutaneous closure of congenital shunts (atrial septal defect (ASD) secundum type, foramen ovale patents, ventricular septal defect (VSD), and patent ductus arteriosus (PDA)) is feasible using modern implantable devices (e.g. Amplatzer occluders). • Short-term results are excellent, long-term data comparing the outcomes with surgical treatment are not yet available.
