Abstract

We report two patients with small, muscular ventricular septal defects, both of whom had a potential risk of infective endocarditis and underwent transcatheter closure using a detachable Cook coil. We suggest that in selected patients this technique offers a simple and cost-effective alternative to surgery or double-disc device procedures.
