Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report the successful transcatheter retrieval of a 6-cm long, rigid methylmethacrylate glue fragment that embolized from a vertebral body to the right atrium. The glue fragment was adherent to the right atrial wall. Two snares were needed, advanced from opposite directions, to carefully separate the glue fragment from the atrial wall, then align it in a linear fashion directly into the sheath for an uneventful removal. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
