Abstract

Percutaneous left atrial appendage (LAA) occlusion is a promising treatment option in patients with atrial fibrillation who have a high risk of embolic stroke and are not eligible for chronic oral anticoagulation therapy. This procedure, however, can induce several complications. Device embolization can result in a serious situation, requiring immediate and safe device removal. We report two cases in which dislodged LAA occlusion devices were flitting in the left atrium or entrapped in the mitral valve leaflets and were successfully retrieved through a transseptal approach without complications.
