The optimal approach in managing cases complicated due to retained components in the coronary arteries during angioplasty is still not clear. In most cases, management is individualized. We report the retrieval of a partially inflated balloon with a broken shaft from the coronary system using a simple technique based on Fogarty. This did not involve the use of a snare or any other retrieval tool.
