The Nit-Occlud® Lê ventricular septal defect coil is a novel device designed for transcatheter closure of ventricular septal defects. Despite continued developments in the area of transcatheter closure of ventricular septal defects, complications remain a common occurrence. In this article, we present two perimembranous ventricular septal defect cases who required re-intervention after developing intractable hemolysis secondary to ventricular septal defect closure with a Nit-Occlud® Lê ventricular septal defect coil.
