Successful retrieval of embolised Occlutech atrial septal defect occluder from descending aorta in a 4-year-old child using a “mother and child” technique: a case report and literature review
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 21 June 2022
A 9 mm Occlutech septal occluder Flex II device was retrieved in a 4-year-old 22 kg child; A 6 Fr Cook® Flexor sheath (child) was inserted into a 9 Fr Occlutech® ASD Delivery Set (mother). Once the tip of the smaller sheath was close to the device, a 4 Fr right Judkins catheter was introduced with a snare. The right atrial hub was captured and withdrawn to the level of the 6 Fr sheath which was then withdrawn into the 9 Fr sheath before being removed completely. The “mother and child” technique offers a greater likelihood of slenderising and retrieving embolised devices.
