Rights and Permissions

As the number of catheterization laboratory procedures increase, there is more incidence of retention of foreign body in the form of torn catheters or devices or stents. Improvised snares are necessary in the absence of readymade snares. Retrieval of peripherally inserted central catheter from the pulmonary artery can be very challenging sometimes. Very few case reports are available regarding retrieval of dislodged stent from right profunda femoris artery.
