INTRODUCTION: Percutaneous left atrial appendage closure device (LAAD) is indicated for patients at risk of bleeding on oral anticoagulation for non-valvular atrial fibrillation. A rare complication of LAAD is embolization and dislocation of the device. Herein, we present a very interesting case of an older gentleman following a syncopal episode and recent AMPLATZER implantation.
