I had do do this on a research project on pig carotids where the goal was to see the reaction to the stent which was buried in an organizing fibrous tissue responce. I took a strong sissor and cut the vessel transversely into 2-3mm rings. Using a forceps I was able to pull the now cut wires making up the stent out of the tissue leaving the tissue pretty much intact. It came out quite well.
PS don't use your favorite sissor!
