Arrow injuries are rare not only in developed but developing nations as well. Generally used in the sport of archery, arrows are also used as a means of combat in insurgency-ridden regions of India. We report a case of penetrating thorax injury with an arrow lodged close to pericardium in an Oriya woman, referred 15 h after the injury. After a successful surgical intervention with meticulous coordination between the anesthesiologist and surgeon, the patient was discharged after 7 days without complication.
