Abstract

With the advent of modern thin-strut coronary stents, there is potential for damage to the stent structure during delivery. Fraying of the stent during unsuccessful attempts at lesion passage can be particularly problematic as re-entry into the guiding catheter may not be possible. Familiarity with techniques to retrieve damaged stents is helpful in this situation. In the present case, we describe intentional removal of a frayed stent from its balloon and subsequent retrieval using a peripheral crossover sheath.
