A 47-year-old man presenting with stable angina pectoris was admitted for elective coronary angioplasty. After balloon angioplasty and uneventful deployment of the stent in the right coronary artery, the angioplasty catheter became entrapped between the stent and the wall of the right coronary artery. During attempts at percutaneous retrieval of the retained catheter, it was inadvertently broken and became embedded near the stent. The patient was stable during the procedure with no electrocardiographic changes. He underwent emergency triple coronary artery bypass, leaving the piece of catheter IN SITU. He had an uneventful postoperative recovery. After six months, he was angina-free with no electrocardiographic changes.
