      • Trans-ventricular approach to “Swiss-cheese” multiple muscular ventricular septal defects is simple, effective and does not appear to adversely affect ventricular function.

      Abstract

      “Swiss-cheese” multiple muscular ventricular septal defects (VSDs) are often very challenging to close. Herein we describe our trans-ventricular approach that allows simple and effective closure of multiple muscular VSDs and does not appear to adversely affect ventricular function. (Video 2)
