Iatrogenic coronary artery dissection is a rare but serious complication during percutaneous coronary intervention. Stent dislodgment or stent loss is another potential complication that can occur under certain circumstances.

Several percutaneous techniques for the management of such complication are discussed, and an illustration of the approach used in our case is presented.
