Percutaneous closure of secundum atrial septal defects (ASDs) with atrial septal occluders (ASOs) avoids sternotomy and cardiopulmonary bypass, and thus is commonly preferred to open heart surgery. However, rare reports of dislocation of the ASO into the systemic circulation do exist. We report the use of an emergent hybrid procedure in the dislocation of an ASO at the bifurcation of the left and right common iliac artery. The dislocation was diagnosed 7 days after percutaneous closure of an ASD.
