PMID:  17006528     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
In infants, the tip of a cannula is sometimes used as introducer during peripherally inserted central catheters placement. We report a rare complication of this procedure, characterized by intravascular migration of the cannula tip during peripheral insertion of a central venous catheter. We review this unlikely complication and treatment options.
