Septal Defect Repair

The sutures are placed around the defect and passed through the patch (white circular object with cross on video below). The patch is moved into place and the sutures are tied. This video shows the repair of an atrial septal defect. Positioning of the patch is similar in VSD repair. The tubes shown in the video are part of the extracorporeal perfusion equipment ("heart-lung" machine).
