Abstract

With the introduction of technological improvements, invasive cardiologic interventions have become increasingly used alternatives to surgery. Despite its numerous benefits, serious and potentially life-threatening complications of invasive cardiology interventions may occur. We presented a case of attempted percutaneous transcatheter closure of a large ASD in 6 years old boy, complicated by device embolization to the left ventricle necessitating emergency surgical retrieval in the department of cardiac surgery, National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases (NICVD), Dhaka.
