No significant differences were found between transcatheter closure (TC) versus surgical closure (SC) with regard to survival, functional capacity, atrial arrhythmias, or embolic neurologic events. Arrhythmia and neurologic events remain long–term risks after ASD closure, especially if the patient had pre–existing arrhythmia.
