Abstract

This report details the percutaneous removal of a metallic foreign body from the wall of the thoracic aorta. The foreign body was presumably swallowed and migrated from the esophagus into the aortic lumen progressively during a period of 10 months. The patient had no adverse consequences from the procedure immediately or in the subsequent 18 months of follow-up.
