try the lawn sprinkler dept at home depot. the sell an extractor (easyout) for pvc pipe. this should be "close to what you need. if it is too long to go into the elbow, just grind off the small end until it fits.
this is probably a brass elbow so the pipe will not be rusted in too tight.

A plumbing supply house will have an easy out built for pipe. probably expensive but still far cheaper than a plumbers visit.

: My task was to replace a shower head. While removing the shower head the chrome extension broke off (it comes from the copper pipe in wall). There is a broke off piece of pipe in the elbow at the end of the copper pipe. How can I remove this broke piece to install a new chrome extension? I do not want to cut off the elbow unless absolutely necessary. It is back in the wall behind a built in shower stall and I do not have much access to it.
