Abstract

Interventional procedures involving the use of intravascular or endoluminal objects have rapidly increased over the years with advancements in minimally invasive techniques. These foreign objects such as endovascular coils, guidewires, and endoluminal catheters, if lost or malpositioned, are a potential threat, which can result in complications such as embolization, perforation, infections, and arrhythmias. Therefore, timely removal of these foreign bodies is essential. In this technical report, we have described our experience with different scenarios in which percutaneous interventional techniques for retrieval of such foreign bodies were performed at our institute.
