Özet

Aortic regurgitation (AR) is a rare complication of transcatheter closure of perimembranous ventricular septal defects (pmVSD). It results from iatrogenic pinching of the aortic valve by the VSD occluder or perforation by the catheter. It is usually detected during control echocardiography (ECHO). The current study reports the first case of a late AR, which resulted from late right coronary cusp perforation by the VSD occluder.
