Abstract

Endoluminal retrieval of foreign bodies in the pediatric and infant population is an uncommon and challenging procedure for the endovascular specialist. The alternative is an open exploration of these often-fragile patients. The availability of smaller catheter systems allows retrieval with minimally invasive techniques. We report retrieval of a catheter fragment using an Amplatz loop snare through the umbilical vein and review the literature.
