Structural heart disease interventions look set to form an increasing proportion of the interventional cardiologist’s workload. Device closure of atrial septal connections, both patent foramen ovale (PFO) and atrial septal defect (ASD), are the most commonly performed adult structural interventional procedures in the UK, with 428 PFO and 545 ASD closure procedures performed in adults in 2014. Device closure of ASDs and PFOs are elegant procedures which combine technical and imaging skills with a detailed understanding of cardiac anatomy. More importantly, they also provide tangible clinical benefits to patients.
