We present a case of successful interventional laser-assisted extraction of an endovascularly trapped long-term implanted ventriculoatrial shunt in a patient with shunt-associated septicemia. This approach is based on modified techniques for explantation of pacemaker leads and might be considered an additional option for extraction of otherwise nonremovable trapped endovascular catheters in experienced centers.
