Since 2008 we have performed 10 hybrid procedures for perventricular muscular ventricular septal defects (mVSD) closure. The mean age was 8.5 months (range 2.7 to 17.8), the mean diameter of mVSD was 6.3 mm (range 4 to 10 mm). The postoperative course was uncomplicated and complete closure of the mVSD was accomplished in all patients. There was neither in-hospital nor late mortality, and the longest follow-up now exceeds three years (range 2 months to 3.1 years). doi: 10.1111/jocs.12106 (J Card Surg 2013;28:453–455)
