Endovascular extraction of a migrated large self-expanding laser-cut renal venous stent from the right ventricle


Sebastian, Tim; Erdoes, Gabor; Bratu, Vlad A; Baumgartner, Iris; Kucher, Nils (2017). Endovascular extraction of a migrated large self-expanding laser-cut renal venous stent from the right ventricle. Journal of Vascular Surgery Cases and Innovative Techniques, 3(2):79-82.

Abstract

Endovascular stent placement for decompression of an entrapped left renal vein (LRV) between the aorta and superior mesenteric artery is an alternative to surgical decompression for treating the nutcracker syndrome. However, an interventional approach may be challenging because of the unfavorable configuration of the LRV, leading to insufficient stent anchoring. We provide a case of a life-threatening stent migration from the LRV into the right ventricle 2 days after stent placement and its endovascular retrieval.
