J Am Vet Med Assoc. 2005 Aug 1;227(3):430-4. doi: 10.2460/javma.2005.227.430.

Abstract

Atrial septal defect, while rare in dogs, can result in severe clinical signs. Surgical correction of atrial septal defect requires open-heart surgery. Transcatheter closure techniques provide minimally invasive surgical alternatives.
