Go to: We report a case of an atrial septal defect where a Figulla Occlutech device embolized into the right ventricle. As this device has no left atrial hub, we brought the bare device into the inferior vena cava and used a novel two-snare technique to slenderize the device into the sheath. This report highlights additional tips in transcatheter device retrieval.
