Endovascular foreign body retrieval from right side of the heart: a case series of six patients. In: International Journal of Cardiology, vol. 99 (01) pp. 143 - 144. elsevier, 2005.
There is sometimes a need to remove foreign bodies that make their way to the heart and surrounding vessels [1]. These foreign bodies may be coils that go astray during implantation or retained indwelling catheters [2]. Special retrieval catheters inserted percutaneously, usually in the femoral vein, grab onto these foreign bodies and then the catheter and the foreign body are removed from the patient [3]. We describe here a case series of six procedures performed in five patients in our cath lab in the last 5 years.
