Abstract

A report is made of a case study where a non-surgical technique was used to remove a broken floppy percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) guidewire. The technique involved the use of a "lasso" to successfully retrieve the broken wire from the left main artery and into the aorta.
