Abstract

Broken catheter fragments in a coronary artery during percutaneous coronary interventions although uncommon can potentially result in life-threatening consequences from the attended embolization, thrombus formation, and perforation. We report an unusual complication of a broken export catheter during primary angioplasty, which was successfully managed by inflated balloon-mediated retrieval technique.
