Central venous catheterization is an important vascular access route used in many operations like open-heart surgery, hemodialysis, multiple trauma patients, total parenteral nutrition, and poor peripheral veins. During central venous catheterization, mechanical complications such as catheter thrombosis, infections, and pneumothorax can develop. In this report, we aimed to present a case of guidewire left unrecognized in venous system after central venous catheterization procedure. The guidewire has been extracted under fluoroscopy guidance. This case emphasizes maintaining and improving patient care and safety by doctor and the team.
