Central venous obstruction in the symptomatic patient is often treated with endovascular stenting. A rare, but serious, complication of this treatment is migration of the stent from the original site of deployment. Treatment of this complication requires either open or endovascular retrieval of the displaced stent. To treat a rare, but potentially devastating, complication, we have presented an effective endovascular method for migrated stent retrieval using a combination of a large bore sheath, balloon, and snare.
