We report a case of percutaneous retrieval of a misplaced embolization coil which threatened the segmental arterial supply of a single kidney. The renal artery was steeply angulated due to a spinal scoliosis but retrieval was rapidly performed using an Amplatz gooseneck snare. This device is particularly useful when the arterial anatomy is tortuous.
