AB - Intravascular foreign bodies are a known complication of medical and dental
procedures. Dental anesthetic needles may be broken off and retained in the
oropharynx. These needles have occasionally been reported to migrate through the
oral mucosa in to deeper structures. Here we present the case of a 57-year-old
man who had a retained dental needle that had migrated into his internal carotid
artery. The needle was removed using endovascular techniques. To our knowledge,
this is the first report of a retained dental needle being retrieved using this
method. We review the literature on intravascular foreign bodies, retained dental
needles, and endovascular techniques for retrieval of such foreign bodies.
