The Pioneer in Ventricular Septal Defect Occluders1

Abbott’s Industry-Leading AMPLATZER Line1

Abbott’s Amplatzer line not only pioneered structural heart defect occluders. It also retains a leadership position in structural heart innovation and treatment worldwide.1

Ventricular septal defects (VSDs) are the most common congenital heart defect, and Amplatzer Muscular as well as Membranous VSD Occluders have a 20-year record of safety and effectiveness.2

Types of VSDs

There are 4 types of VSDs:

  • Perimembranous VSDs—the most common, composing 80% of VSDs3
  • Muscular VSDs
  • Conal, or subpulmonary VSDs
  • Inlet VSDs

You can find more information about each type of VSD.

Amplatzer Options for Ventricular Septal Defect Closure

Abbott offers 3 devices for percutaneous, transcatheter VSD occlusion. Like many Amplatzer occluders, these devices:

  • Are self-expandable, double-disc devices
  • Are made from Nitinol wire mesh
  • Can be recaptured and redeployed for precision in placement
  • Are designed for complete closure
  • Provide substrate for tissue in-growth
  • Have a connecting waist that corresponds to the size of the VSD*


* With the condition that the implanter chooses the appropriate device size
