A gooseneck loop snare is the most popular device for endovascular retrieval of intravascular foreign bodies” Lee et al (2017).

Abstract:

Intravascular foreign bodies can cause serious complications and catheter fracture with or without embolization is a rare, serious event. Intravascular fragments from broken catheters can be retrieved percutaneously or surgically, and should be removed as soon as possible to prevent further lethal complications. A gooseneck loop snare is the most popular device for endovascular retrieval of intravascular foreign bodies. Herein, we present the first report of successful percutaneous retrieval of a fractured catheter using a balloon.
