Com­pli­ca­tions asso­ciated ­with cor­o­nary ­stent place­ment ­have ­decreased in ­recent ­years. One of the com­pli­ca­tions ­involved ­with ­this pro­ce­dure is the pos­sibility ­that the ­stent is ­stripped ­from the ­delivery cath­eter ­prior to deploy­ment and is ­lost system­i­cally. ­This ­paper ­reports a ­rare com­pli­ca­tion ­which ­resulted in vas­cular insuf­fi­ciency neces­si­tating sur­gical inter­ven­tion.
