In brief: Very rarely

ASD surgery is usually very successful.
There are some types of ASD that are more challenging, and there is a higher risk of having a small residual defect. While not a complete closure, small residual defects are not considered failures.

In brief: Device closure

Is the standard now.
It has a very high success rate (in our series >95%) the remainder are referred to surgery with a 100% success rate.
