The AngioSculpt PTCA Scoring Balloon Catheter is an FDA-approved device for plaque modulation. We describe the first case of AngioSculpt EX catheter entrapment and detachment in the right coronary artery during PCI that was successfully managed with stent jailing of the entrapped balloon catheter and its shaft against the vessel wall.
