The most common invasive intravascular procedure is the placement of the intravenous cannula. The use of peripheral venous cannulas may lead to a number of complications that may increase hospital stay, increase the cost of treatment, and decrease patient comfort. Spontaneous fracture and migration of intravenous cannula is a known complication and should be removed immediately. We report a case of a peripheral venous catheter (PVC) piece in the left cephalic vein treated successfully by a surgical approach. Our patient had to undergo intravenous cannulation for treatment of pneumonia and the cannula was cut on the second day by mistake during removal. The cut catheter piece was removed operatively. Inserting and removing a PVC is not always a simple and harmless procedure.
