Although late complications of percutaneous closure of atrial septal defect (ASD), including cardiac erosion and thrombosis, are rare, they are the most lethal. Data are still lacking regarding the usefulness of new imagining modalities, such as three-dimensional echocardiography (3DE), for the detection of these complications. Here, we report the case of a 57-year-old woman in whom cardiac erosion was very well visualized by 3D transesophageal echocardiography (3D TEE) after percutaneous ASD closure.
