Explantation of a fully deployed coronary stent

Published:September 14, 2021DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jccase.2021.08.006


      Percutaneous extraction of a freshly implanted stent is rarely reported, as it requires high technical expertise and accurate selection of instruments to ensure a safe retrieval process. Herein, we report a case of successful snaring of an erroneously deployed stent in the aorto-ostial position using the coaxial snare technique after successful recanalization of a complex right coronary artery chronic total occlusion.
