Aorta erosion due to amplatzer device

Is there anybody who had ASD closure with amplatzer device and had issues afterwards?
I have 26mm amplatzer device implanted 8 yrs ago (in 2007) when i was 24 and now doctors are telling me that the device is eroding my aorta and open heart surgery is needed to take the device out.
