Abstract

Cardiac tamponade occurring late after interventional closure of defects within the oval fossa is a very rare but life-threatening complication. We describe such an occurrence after use of a Cardioseal device to close an interatrial communication. Two arms of the device had perforated left atrial wall. The device was removed at surgery, and the defect closed uneventfully. All available means should be used to identify this complication.
