Protocol for stuck PICC

Does anyone have protocol for stuck PICC removal?  Any information can be sent to my email at [email protected].  Thanks in advance for your help.

Check out this senario...I placed a PICC in a man...did the routine teaching, provided the patient care booklet...4 weeks later he came to the ED because the homecare RN couldn't remove the PICC..I went to the ed and did the routine warming measures...still stuck..he ended up in angio where the MD could see the picc was in a knot..they snaked it out through the one told him he couldn't chop wood!!!!I don't care what you think...I thought it was funny!
