Abstract

The Ceraflex atrial septal defect occluder is an alternative device to the Amplatzer septal occluder with some structural innovations including flexible connection, increased flexibility, and minimized amount of implant material. We evaluated the efficiency and safety of the Ceraflex septal occluder device in percutaneous closure of secundum atrial septal defects.
