Abstract

Coronary stent loss and its migration is one of complications of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). We present a case of successful retrieval of a coronary stent which moved initially to the left renal artery. Subsequently the stent was lost again and migrated to the left deep femoral artery, while an attempt was made at its retrieval with a snare loop from the renal artery. Successful retrieval was finally performed through right femoral access by the so-called “cross-over” method. (Cardiol J 2007; 14: 87–90)
