Abstract

Percutaneous device closure of atrial septal defect (ASD) has merged as an alternative to traditional surgical closure. The authors are presenting the case of a 55-year-old female patient with chest complaints following Amplatzer occluder implantation for closure of secundum type ASD. She had been presented ambulatory at her cardiologist's office 3 days after the discharge from the hospital. Echocardiography revealed persisting ASD and displacement of the device. She had been referred to the Heart Institute of Pécs, where chest X-ray and CT examination were done. The dislocated occluder device was found wedged in the bifurcation of aorta and brachiocephalic trunk. Open heart surgery was indicated and the device was removed, after that the ASD was directly closed. The patient had been discharged in good health at the 5th postoperative day.
