Abstract

The achievement of coaxiality between recovery device and embolized tubular foreign bodies like central venous catheters is a key point to achieve percutaneous removal. To facilitate this target, we designed a coaxial retrieval loop-snare device using a modified coronary guiding catheter and a coronary 0.014′ guidewire. This new technique has been bench tested and then successfully used to remove a long Port-A catheter's fragment embolized into the right sided heart. © 2008 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
