Abstract

A 23-year-old man was referred to our center with hematuria and hemolysis. The patient had undergone mitral and tricuspid valve replacement 3 months previously. Echocardiography and catheterization revealed a Gerbode-type ventricular septal defect. A decision was made to occlude the defect interventionally. The patient's hematuria ceased immediately safter the occlusion of the defect. <Learning objective: Iatrogenic ventricular septal defects (especially Gerbode-type) are relatively rare complications after valvular surgery. Correction of such defects can be done both surgically and interventionally, but since the risk of another operation for correction is high, percutaneous ventricular septal defect closure is usually the preferred treatment option. Using an appropriate approach will increase the success rate.> © 2015 Japanese College of Cardiology.
