Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Closure of Atrial Septal Defects With the AMPLATZER Septal Occluder - Post Approval Study
Study Start Date : August 2007
Actual Primary Completion Date : June 2014
Actual Study Completion Date : June 2014

Arm Intervention/treatment
AMPLATZER Septal Occluder
Subjects were enrolled if the implant of the AMPLATZER Septal Occluder device was completed or was attempted (delivery system entered the subject's body).
Device: AMPLATZER Septal Occluder
AMPLATZER Septal Occluder

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percent of Subjects With Two-year Device-related Hemodynamic Compromise [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    The primary efficacy endpoint was the two-year incidence rate of device-related hemodynamic compromise.

  2. Co-Primary Effectiveness Endpoint [ Time Frame: 24 months ]

    The percentage of subjects for whom closure success is achieved through two-years. To meet this endpoint, two criteria must be met:

    Technical Success: Successful deployment of the device percutaneously Closure Success: Closure of the atrial septal defect (i.e., a shunt < 2mm) without the need for surgical repair

  3. Co-Primary Safety Endpoint [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    The co-primary safety endpoint was the percentage of subjects experiencing a device or delivery system related adverse event
