In this procedure, the provider closes an opening between the ventricles, or lower chambers of the heart, the result of a birth defect. He inserts a catheter through a large vein in the groin and threads it into the right side of the heart. He injects dye and obtains images of the upper and lower chambers. He then inserts an implant to cover the opening in the septum, or wall between the chambers.
