|Title:||Percutaneous retrieval of intravascular broken catheter fragments. A novel technique using a balloon|
|Citation:||INTERVENTIONAL NEURORADIOLOGY. 11; 2; 149-154|
|Abstract:||We describe a novel technique to retrieve broken catheter fragments from the vascular tree at difficult locations using a balloon. A coronary balloon can be taken over a microwire into the catheter fragment to hold it after inflation of the balloon and then the whole assembly can be gradually taken out. We used this novel technique successfully in three patients where the snare failed to retrieve the broken catheter fragment from vascular tree.|
