This is a retrospective, observational study comprising of eight patients with isolated rupture of the sinus of Valsalva (RSOV) who underwent transcatheter device closure. The mean age of presentation was 32.8 10.0 years. New York Heart Association (NYHA) class at the time of presentation was II (six patients) and III (two patients). The RSOVs were all closed using a patent ductus arteriosus device. The mean procedural time was 42.3 5.4 minutes, while the fluoroscopic time was 24.5 6.9 minutes. All had complete closure of the shunt. The average hospital stay was 2.9 1.1 days. There were no major complications. The patients were followed up for a mean of 11.3 4.1 months. At the time of the last follow up all the patients were in NYHA class I. We conclude that in the short term, transcatheter closure of isolated RSOV is a viable alternative to surgical repair.
