Minimally invasive and interventional techniques are increasingly being used in manipulating malpositioned or dislocated intravascular foreign bodies. There is a wide range of available endovascular techniques either for correcting the position of an incorrectly placed endovascular device or for its percutaneous retrieval. We report a case of successful retrieval of a misplaced central venous guiding wire from the left sigmoid dural venous sinus.
