dc.description.abstractThe use of umbilical artery catheters is common in Neonatal Intensive Care Units, especially in low and very low birth weight neonates. Rarely, these can break or fracture, leading to a retained fragment, which can embolize or cause thrombosis. We present a case of a very low birth weight, premature neonate, 940 grams, with a retained umbilical artery catheter that led to bilateral lower extremity ischemia. A laparotomy with aortotomy was performed for retrieval of the catheter. Chronic occlusion of the aorta with collateralization is a long-term complication associated with this case.
