Abstract

Fracture of catheter fragment in a coronary artery during percutaneous coronary angioplasty is a rare complication, which may result into embolization or impaction leading to complete or near complete occlusion of respective territory, arrhythmia, or rarely sudden death. Here, we report an unusual complication of a broken balloon catheter during angioplasty of a calcified right coronary artery in a 78-year old female which was successfully retrieved by balloon assisted trapping in guiding catheter.
