Rupture of a silicon port catheter is a relatively rare complication and sometimes it is difficult to remove it. We experienced three cases of retrieval of silicone port catheters migrating into cardiac ventricle or pulmonary artery. Several devices such as a snare wire, an ablation catheter, and a basket catheter in combination with interventional guiding catheter were applied to retrieve them. These interventional techniques are applicable for retrieval of embolized vascular access port system and other catheter fragments.
