Özet

Endoluminal retrieval of foreign bodies in the cardiac laboratory is an uncommon and challenging procedure for the endovascular specialist, and its only alternative is an open exploration. The availability of smaller catheter systems allows retrieval with minimally invasive techniques. We report retrieval of two catheter fragments using a snare-loop catheter through the femoral vein.
