Abstract

Peripherally inserted central catheter line entrapment is a rare complication in the neonatal intensive care unit and only a small number of cases have been reported. While studies have suggested recommendations for removal, there is still a need for surgical intervention in some cases. This is a case of a premature infant with long term peripherally inserted central catheter line placement with fibrin sheath formation that required multiple attempts before successful noninvasive removal and a review of the cases with difficult peripherally inserted central catheter removal in newborns.
