Percutaneous closure of atrial septal defects has been accepted as an effective and safe treatment method. Device embolization is a rare, but potentially fatal complication. While embolized devices are rather removed surgically, they can also be removed percutaneously in some eligible cases and in experienced centers. In this case, we present retrieval of an embolized device with a novel percutaneous technique.
