For Confidence Beyond Measure
The primary treatment option for atrial septal defects (ASD) is percutaneous transcatheter closure, and Abbott’s Amplatzer Occluder is the proven standard of care1,2—with more than 20 years of global clinical experience in ASD closure.3
The Amplatzer line not only pioneered structural heart defect occluder devices, it remains the leader in innovation and treatment worldwide.
- 98.5% closure rate with no significant residual shunt (less than 2 mm) at 1 year4
- Low major and minor complication rates at 2 years5
*Data on file at Abbott.
Amplatzer has an unmatched track record of over 20 years of experience in effective structural heart therapies.5 It also offers exceptional safety data which is significant given that the Amplatzer Septal Occluder is the most studied transcatheter ASD closure device on the market.
