Even if many transcatheter closure techniques are closely associated, atrial septal defects, ventricular septal defects, and patent ductus arteriosus each involve unique approaches. Similarly, aortic pseudoaneurysms and iatrogenic fistulas are discussed separately. Most closure techniques are improvisations of methods applied in more commonly encountered congenital defects. There is no standard approach to either of these conditions because the location and relation to surrounding structures varies significantly.
