This case is a 13 years old male, known case of lymphoma and was on chemotherapy through BROVIAC central line. While the central line was being removed in the operating room, it was accidentally broken and dislodged. Chest x-ray showed a long piece of central line with its upper end in the right atrium and lower end into deep hepatic vein [Figure 1]. The patient was transferred to the cardiac catheterization laboratory immediately. A 10 French sidearm sheath was placed into right femoral vein and using a 6 French single loop snare catheter, the line was snared in the SVC from its upper end [Figure 2] a and removed through femoral venous sheath uneventfully [Figure 2] b.
