Amplatzer devise for ASD repair

Anyone had the Amplatzer devise used for repair of their ASD? i am having surgery to patch the hole in my heart using this devise and wondered if anyone has had this? Do you have any problems? Thanks

Re: Amplatzer devise for ASD repair

I had this procedure last June for an ASD, but it was referred to as Cardiac catherisation. Although it was unsuccessful, as the hole was too big, it felt painless and I had no problem recovering from it. Hope that it goes well for you.

Hi and thanks for the reply.

Did you have OHS to repair the hole? How big was your ASD and how old are you? Thanks again.

Re: Amplatzer devise for ASD repair

Hi again,
Yes to your question, I had OHS 8 weeks ago, which is why i spend my days surfing the net. The ASD was diagnosed two years ago, I am now 32 and had displayed very few of the symptoms. If you're facing some form of surgery try not to worry too much about it, I was totally freaked out but it wasnt as traumatic as i thought it would be.

PS I forgot to say that the hole measured 5x3. Hope this info is of some use!

Re: Amplatzer devise for ASD repair

Thanks for the reply, I am not worried about the procedure or any possible heart surgery i may need but i am worried about my current health and the fact that i am not totally convinced that this procedure will reverse my health issues. Guess i'll have to wait and see.
