The Figulla ASD device – see it in action!

Dr Malik says:

It is worth seeing what I put inside you to close a hole in the atrial septum (an atrial septal defect-ASD).

The indications for closure are:

  1. Dilated right heart, showing strain from the abnormal shunting
  2. The shunt from left to right across the ASD being large (comparing flow on the left and right 1.5:1 shunt)
  3. A paradoxical embolism- clot moving from the right to the left

ASD closure is done under general anaesthesia with X-Ray and echo guidance. It is a very safe and effective procedure- please see some of my cases on YouTube.
