Approaches for dislodged stent retrieval during transradial percutaneous coronary interventions
Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions, 06/01/2012
Kwan TW et al. – With the increased implementation of transradial approach in complex PCI, stent dislodgement is unavoidable in any interventionalists' career. Stent retrieval is different in a transradial approach as compared to a transfemoral approach because of the former's smaller arterial size. In this review, authors outline the different stent retrieval techniques with considerations from transradial access.
