Dislodged stent: a simple retrieval technique.

PMID:  10402289     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report a technique for retrieval of a dislodged coronary stent using a stiff angioplasty wire positioned beside the initial stent guidewire. This two-wire technique provides a better platform to move and position the snare device without moving the dislodged stent and thus lessens the risk of embolization. If a larger femoral sheath is needed for stent removal, this method facilitates sheath exchange. Cathet. Cardiovasc. Intervent. 47:323-324, 1999.
