Table 4 Safety outcomes 6 months after transcatheter ASD closure

From: Efficacy and safety of transcatheter closure in adults with large or small atrial septal defects

  All patients (n = 107) Large device group (n = 41) Small device group (n = 66) p value
Primary safety outcome, n (%) 10 (9) 4 (10) 6 (9) 1.00
Secondary safety outcomes, n (%)
 Device embolization 2 (2) 1 (2) 1 (2) 1.00
 New-onset atrial arrhythmia 5 (5) 3 (7) 2 (3) 0.37
 Major bleeding 3 (3) 0 (0) 3 (5) 0.28
 Death 1 (1) 1 (2) 0 (0) 0.38
  1. The primary safety outcome at 6-month follow-up was a composite of device embolization, new-onset atrial arrhythmia, and major bleeding classified as Type 2 or greater according to the BARC definition
