Abstract: The Palmaz-Schatz stent can be successfully deployed in most patients. However, in a small percentage of instances a systemic embolism of the stent has been reported. In the present article we describe an easy and fast method of stent capture when detachment from the balloon has happened (pulling back the stent-loaded balloon into the guiding catheter or femoral sheath). In this situation we propose the use of the coronary guide-wire "as a guide" to capture coaxially the lost stent. This method allows for continuing the procedure without removal of the femoral sheath.
