ABSTRACT
Shearing of the pulmonary artery catheter is a rare complication. Intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography was used to localize the catheter in the heart and the catheter was successfully removed. Easy mobility of the pulmonary artery catheters should be tested prior to sternotomy closure in patients having open cardiotomy.
