Abstract

Coils and stents are now commonly used by interventional pediatric cardiologists. With few exceptions, definitive control of these devices is not available, and embolization or malposition is frequently a procedural risk. Many strategies and techniques have been developed to improve control in the placement of these devices, and also to retrieve or deal with embolized devices. This paper reviews many of these strategies and techniques.
