Liao et al. investigated the long-term outcome of conventional surgery repair and perventricular device occlusion for doubly committed subarterial (DCSA) VSD. They analyzed single-center results using propensity score matching. There were no differences in adverse events within the two groups. The interventional treatment resulted in shorter mechanical ventilation times and hospital stay. The authors concluded that interventional device therapy might be an alternative for selected patients with DCSA VSD.
