The patient was a 66-year-old woman with breast cancer who had undergone chemotherapy. She had had a subcutaneous venous catheter implanted through the left subclavian vein six months earlier. She came to the Emergency Department due to sharp pain in the left hemithorax that radiated towards the shoulder. Physical examination was normal. Chest radiography (Fig. 1) showed that the reservoir catheter had broken and migrated due to the compression between the collar bone and first rib. The tube was extracted using a Dormia catheter and the reservoir port was withdrawn.
