A planned combined perventricular and “open heart” surgical closure of multiple ventricular septal defects had to be modified intraoperatively due to a technical fault disabling echocardiographic guidance. Through an atriotomy, device closure of a muscular defect and patch closure of a perimembranous ventricular septal defect were performed. In unusual situations, collaboration of the surgical and interventional team is crucial.
