Abstract
A 41-year-old woman was treated with a Figulla (Occlutec, Helsingborg, Sweden) atrial septum occluder device with no intraprocedural complications. Five months later, dislocation of the device in the abdominal aorta was detected. The occluder device was located at the level of the celiac axis, nearly obstructing the entire aorta. Owing to total incorporation of the device, endoluminal retrieval was not possible. Through a medial rotation approach, the device was safely removed. This is a rare complication after endoluminal closure of an atrial septum defect. The retrieval possibilities are discussed.
