Abstract

Guide catheter kinking and fracture is an uncommon complication of percutaneous coronary intervention and may require emergency surgical intervention if percutaneous retrieval fails. We present a case of guide catheter kinking and fracture during attempts to engage the left main coronary artery in a patient with marked iliac tortuosity. The retained guide catheter fragment was retrieved percutaneously by using a snare from the contralateral femoral artery and removing the folded-over catheter fragment through the contralateral arteriotomy.
