Abstract: Central venous cannulation via the internal jugular vein is commonly used in critically ill patients. Numerous complications of this procedure including embolisation of a fragment of guide wire and its retrieval by interventional radiological techniques are well known. We report a case of a lost guide wire into the venous circulation during central venous cannulation, which was retrieved via a right femoral venotomy.
