Percutaneous removal of an embolized port catheter: description of a new coaxial recovery technique including a case-report.

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivista

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
