Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Snare retrieval of foreign bodies is a common procedure but in certain cases, location of the foreign body requires another system. We present three cases in which only the use of a pigtail catheter gave a good grip for gentle traction and removal or repositioning of the foreign body. A careful review of the world literature up to December 1982 gave rise to two previous similar reports. Both our experience and that found in the literature seem to suggest that in cases where there are no free ends to snare, pigtail catheters may be the first instrument used to start retrieval.
