PMID:  6770767     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Intracardiac migration of an intravenous cathether was treated transvenously in 5 patients successfully. Using local anesthesia and fluoroscopic guidance, a bronchoscopy forceps was passed through the right jugular vein to the right atrium and afforded efficient and safe retrieval of the embolus. The direct route to the right atrium provided by the right internal jugular vein and the precise control offerred by the rigid forceps make this the preferred method of retrieval of a transvenous catheter embolus.
