Complications of retained or entrapped equipment in the coronary system are still encountered during angioplasty procedures. Although these complications are rare, it is extremely difficult to retrieve such equipments. We report on two cases that a retained IVUS catheter or an entrapped filter wire were retrieved from the coronary system using more simplified technique that does not involve in the usage of snare or any other retrieval tool. After placing an additional guidewire and balloon alongside an equipment, it was easily retrieved from the coronary system just after the proximal balloon deflation.
