The transcatheter closure of atrial septal defects provides an alternative to surgery, and various devices, such as the Sideris buttoned device, have been prescribed. Late complications have been rare and have not yet been reported within 2 years of implantation. This report presents a case of delayed migration of a Sideris buttoned device occurring 6 years after successful implantation. In conclusion, this report provides a reminder of the need for careful long-term follow-up of patients receiving transcatheter closure of atrial septal defects, particularly in cases involving the implantation of early-generated devices.
