The peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) is used frequently in preterm infants. The known complications associated with the PICC include infection, thrombosis, extravasation, phlebitis, leakage of insertion site, fracture, accidental removal, occlusion of the PICC, and arrhythmia. We herein report a case of a spontaneously fractured PICC remnant that was successfully removed by cardiac catheterization.
Key Words: Peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC); Fracture; Remnant; Cardiac catheterization
