Rupture of the silicon port catheter is a relatively rare complication. Ruptured part usually embolizes; therefore, removal of foreign body may be difficult. These ports usually migrate to right-sided chambers, main pulmonary arteries, and pulmonary subbranches. Different devices such as snares, basket catheters, and ablation catheters are utilized for retrieval. ...

The transradial (TR) approach for coronary angiography and intervention is increasingly used worldwide because of several advantages such as reduced bleeding and vascular complications. During TR procedures, aggressive catheter manipulation in the setting of complex and tortuous arterial anatomy can lead to catheter kinking and entrapment. Several percutaneous retrieval techniques ...
