Femoral venous access is the typical route for the antegrade approach to percutaneous closure of a perimemberanous ventricular septal defect (PM VSD). In this case report, we attempted percutaneous PM VSD closure in a five-year-old child with interrupted inferior vena cava (IVC) using a retrograde arterial approach. The Amplatzer Duct Occluder II was chosen due to its symmetrical design that can be deployed using either a retrograde or antegrade approach. We found the retrograde percutaneous PM VSD closure by off-label use of this device to be an easy and feasible option in this case of interrupted IVC, whereas the use of an antegrade approach would have been imprecise and potentially time-consuming.
