In this paper, we focus on direct summands and indecomposable decompositions of $PI$-extending modules. To this end, we provide several counter examples including the tangent bundles of complex spheres of dimensions bigger than or equal to 5 and certain hyper surfaces in projective spaces over complex numbers and obtain results when the $PI$-extending property is inherited by direct summands. Moreover, we show that under some module theoretical conditions $PI$-extending modules with Abelian endomorphism rings have indecomposable decompositions. Finally, we apply our former results, getting that, under suitable hypotheses, the finite exchange property implies the full exchange property.http://bims.iranjournals.ir/article_999_9307a1ce4337ba7bd09adbd5dc888465.pdf
