Percutaneous closure of atrial septal defects is accepted as a safe and effective treatment method. Device embolization is a rare, but potentially fatal complication. While embolized devices are typically removed surgically, in eligible cases, they can also be removed percutaneously at an experienced center. Presently described is the retrieval of an embolized device with a novel percutaneous technique.

Keywords: Atrial septal defect, embolized device; percutaneous retrieval.
