Has anyone had ASD closure with an amplatzer device and got it removed after over some (5-10) years? my doctor is stating (from an echo) that the device is touching the aorta and should be removed due to potential risks. I am wondering after so many years if it would be a problem to get it removed with an open heart surgery or since I do not have abnormal symptoms if I should wait and get checked regularly. Thanks..

Hi Yaz. I know it's been over a year, but did you ever wind up having the device removed?? I was fitted with an Amplatzer just about a year ago. I feel great, but I continue to have migraine issues.
