【Abstract】 Aim: To investigate the safety of interventional therapy in patients with secondary atrial septal defect (atrial septal defect, ASD) with complete aortic rim deficiency and explore the predictors of right atrial non-reverse remodeling. Methods: 1011 patients with ASD who underwent transcatheter closure in the Department of Cardiology, Zhongshan Hospital affiliated to Fudan University from June 2017 to June 2022 were enrolled in the study. They were divided into a complete aortic rim deficiency group and without absent aortic rim group. Furthermore, patients who had an enlarged right atrial in the absent aortic rim group were divided into two sub-groups according to whether their right atrial reversed remodeling post-procedure. Multivariate logistic regression was used to determine the predictors of right atrial reversed remodeling. Results: During the 1-year follow-up, no major operative complications occurred in all patients with the absence of an aortic rim and a normal edge. After the operation, the right heart remodeling was significantly reversed, multivariate logistic regression analysis was performed and found that preoperative without coronary heart disease, lower plasma creatinine level, and larger RA and RV dimension were predictive factors for the reverse of right atrial remodeling after treatment. Conclusion: Transcatheter closure of ASD with complete aortic rim deficiency is safe and feasible. The patients without coronary heart disease, the lower the creatinine value and the less tricuspid regurgitation before an operation, the more improvement of right atrial remodeling after the operation.
