A four year old girl was diagnosed as a case of mid muscular Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) since early infancy. She had history of failure to thrive (FTT) and recurrent chest infection or pneumonia. As her pulmonary artery pressure was almost normal she was planned for device closure on elective basis once device and technology would be available in cardiac centre of combined Military Hospital (CMH) Dhaka. Finally it was done on 21st August 2005 and patient was discharged after 72 hours observation period. Echocardiography on next morning showed complete occlusion of defect with no residual shunt.
