Abstract

We report a case of endovascular snare retrieval of a new stainless steel vascular closure device (Celt ACD®, Kimal, Middlesex, UK) from the common femoral artery, following device failure after diagnostic coronary angiography. The stainless steel composition of the device aided successful fluoroscopic localization and removal. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
