Postinfarction ventricular septal rupture remains a lethal complication of acute myocardial infarction. Percutaneous closure is feasible and may provide an alternative treatment option to surgical repair, particularly in the nonacute phase. Transcatheter closure of postinfarction ventricular septal rupture using innovative custom-made devices may be a promising alternative to high-risk surgery.
