Intraventricular stent loss after interventional treatment of a coronary dissection - a case report.

PMID:  21891814     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
The introduction of stents for treatment of coronary lesions markedly improved the outcome of coronary interventions. We report on a female patient who was admitted to our hospital with acute coronary syndrome and stent loss into the left ventricle during coronary intervention performed in another hospital. Stent loss is a very rare but potentially lethal complication of a stent implantation.
