Abstract

Percutaneous device closure of atrial septal defect (ASD) is an alternative to traditional surgical closure. Various advantages of percutaneous correction are less invasive, early recovery, less hospital stay. Yet the complications such as arrhythmia, cardiac tamponade, and device embolization cannot be ignored. We report a case of ASD device embolization in case of ostium secondum ASD with deficient aortic rim. The embolized device was stuck in the main pulmonary artery at bifurcation in the vertical position, which required surgical intervention for retrieval.
