From St Jude Medical

The Amplatzer Cardiac Plug is designed to provide optimal occlusion with full cross-sectional orifice coverage, flexible braided Nitinol mesh, and controlled, precise deployment. The Cardiac Plug has the ability to be repositioned, if necessary.

The lobe of the Amplatzer Cardiac Plug is designed to conform to the inner wall of a cardiac structure with a depth of 10mm or more and provide secure device placement. Positional forgiveness is achieved through a waist that acts as an articulating, compliant connection between the disc and lobe allowing the disc to self-orient to the cardiac wall. The disc is designed to completely cover the orifice of the cardiac structure and provide apposition against the chamber wall under gentle tension.
