Özet

Endovascular interventions are widely performed of late; complications including stent embolism of arteries and veins, dislocation, or malposition of medical devices are frequently seen. Peripheral stent embolisms are generally asymptomatic, but when they cause acute ischemia or severe symptoms like claudication they must be removed. Stents can be removed not only with surgical techniques but also with endovascular maneuvers. In this case report, we state that in symptomatic peripheral arterial embolization cases, surgical intervention is the first choice for treatment due to the complexity and high risk of complications when using endovascular maneuvers.
