Amplatzer device

Anyone out there had an Amplatzer device implanted? I am booked in for surgery on Feb 21 and was keen to hear from anyone who may have had this device for a hole in the heart closure.
Thanking you in advance, Jayne.

Re: Amplatzer device

I have an ASD that isn't causing problems, but the option of having it closed has come up. I did some research on it and decided that in my case, it wouldn't be beneficial because I'd basically still have the same risks but for different reasons :-/. I don't think we're allowed to post .com links here but I know Amplatzer has a web site about their product and there are some personal stories on there ('course you have to remember that this is the site made by the company that makes the device...). The site is just the name and if you type Amplatzer into Google it will be the first link that comes up.

Re: Amplatzer device

Curious if you followed through with your February procedure. I am a 35 y/o male considering a PFO closure using the amplatzer device, and am eager to hear any feedback, good or bad.
