Emboli are among the most feared complications of interventional cardiology. Although surgery is needed in most cases for the removal of peripheric foreign body emboli, some may be extracted by percutaneous intervention. We present a case of retrieval of a femoral sheath fragment via contralateral femoral access, wiring of the sheath fragment, and retrieval with an 'anchoring balloon' system.
