Abstract

Patent foramen ovale (PFO) is a common heart condition in adults. Closure with a septal occluder device is a safe, well-established treatment option with excellent clinical outcomes. One rare complication of percutaneous PFO closure is embolization of the device to the heart chambers or distal vasculature. Most device migrations are recognized during or shortly after implantation. While many endovascular retrievals of migrated devices are successful, there are still a high percentage of surgical interventions performed. We report a case of a septal occluder device that embolized to the abdominal aorta and was discovered 7 days after implantation. Endovascular techniques with a snare and endobronchial forceps were used to retrieve the device safely.
