Abstract Intracoronary stenting has now become a widely stablished method for treatment of complications of coronary angioplasty. the risk of stent embolism exists and if not retrieved, it may lead to thrombosis and coronary occlusion with myocardial infarction. We report a case of embolism of an undeployed intracoronary stent where there was failure of percutaneous attempts to pull back the stent, requiring surgical retrieval and simultaneous coronary artery bypass grafting, both without cardiopulmonary bypass.
