A 3-year-old female child, a case of lymphoid leukemia successfully completed her last cycle of chemotherapy. While retrieving the chemoport, the distal part of the port was fractured and migrated distally in the superior vena cava which was seen on the chest radiograph and later confirmed on computed tomography (scan). We present an interesting case where removal of such a fractured port segment was done in toto by means of endovascular intervention through the common femoral vein under fluoroscopy guidance.
