Embolization of the patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) device is a known adverse event of percutaneous PDA closure, which can lead to complications. Embolization can occur into the pulmonary artery or into the aorta. Device embolization can be moderate adverse event (when retrieved percutaneously) or major adverse event (when retrieved surgically). We are describing a hybrid approach for aortic embolization of PDA device when the percutaneous retrieval fails, where device retrieval and PDA ligation can be done through thoracotomy incision, thus decreasing the complications.
