ABSTRACT

Entrapment and breakage of devices used in coronary interventions are rare complications, but have occurred with increasing frequency. Knowledge and mastery of techniques to rescue these materials are of paramount importance to solve these incidents. We report a successful withdrawal of a 0.014” retained guidewire in the coronary artery, by the so-called twin guidewire technique.
