Abstract

A 68-year-old man underwent pulmonary vein isolation with cryoballoon combined with left atrial appendage closure using a LAmbre device. The device was dislodged and embolized early after implantation with no symptoms, and it was retrieved percutaneously. An early in-hospital check of the device position after implantation is important for early recognition of any possible device-related complication.
