Catheterization for adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) is rapidly progressing. In Japan, the number of ACHD patients has far outpaced that of pediatric patients, and the need for catheterization for ACHD is growing. In particular, catheterization is a useful tool for long-term postoperative structural problems for which effective medical therapy is limited. It can lower the risk of repeat open heart surgery while also providing minimally invasive treatment. This paper discusses catheterization procedures that are well-established in Japan, such as ASD closure and PDA closure, as well as those that are likely to be introduced in Japan in the future, such as transcatheter correction of superior sinus venosus atrial septal defects.

Key words: adult congenital heart disease; atrial septal defect; transcatheter pulmonary valve implantation; stent implantation
