A thin catheter is introduced into the femoral artery, close to the child’s groin, and will be guided to the auricular region. The intervention cardiologist will have a broad view of all stages of the procedure through large monitors present in the operating room. A second catheter will be introduced with a prosthesis attached to its end, which will be positioned and released over the opening, so that it is occluded.
After surgery, in the healing stage, the fibrous tissue will cover the prosthesis, thus preventing possible leaks. The child will undergo periodic evaluation cardiological exams and then visits to the cardiologist will be annual.
