Treatment of postsurgical iatrogenic ventricular septal defects (VSDs) remains a challenge. Surgical closure is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. A peripheral accessed percutaneous approach is faced with difficulties of gaining adequate access and complex positioning in a beating heart. We report a case of using a hybrid approach to treat iatrogenic VSD with surgical right atriotomy and delivery of an Amplatzer system under direct visualization and transesophageal echocardiography guidance.
