Abstract

Cobrahead deformity is a known (but uncommon) phenomenon associated with the left atrial disc of the AMPLATZER or Occlutech Figulla septal occluder device during percutaneous transcatheter atrial septal defect closure. It has also been postulated that the right atrial disc of the AMPLATZER septal occluder device might upon occasion exhibit the cobrahead malformation. To date, only one case report concerning the cobrahead deformity in the right atrial disc of an AMPLATZER septal occluder has been published, if we discount a report published as a letter to the manufacturer
