Abstract: The Amplatzer Cardiac Plug (ACP) device, used for percutaneous left atrial appendage closure, frequently presents as an unexplained figure-of-eight on echocardiography. The aim of this study was to clarify the figure-of-eight display of the ACP device during echocardiography and to relate this finding to device position and function.
