Congenital absence of the pericardium is a well described but rare malformation which occur either as complete absence of the entire pericardium or as a partial left or right portion of pericardium. Cardiac anomalies are common with congenital absence of pericardium which includes Atrial septal defect, Patent ductus arteriosus, Mitral valve disease, Tetralogy of Fallot and Sinus venosus defect. We report two cases of retrospective diagnosis of congenital absence of pericardium after Atrial septal defect device closure which masqueraded as device embolization.
