PMID:  23109758     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The breakage of a stent-delivery catheter at the shaft is a rare and dangerous complication during coronary intervention. We report a simple balloon technique for the successful retrieval, from within a guiding catheter, of both an unexpanded stent and its delivery system.
