We report the case of an 84-year-old male with history of permanent pacemaker placement that interfered with catheter placement in the contralateral central circulation” Studer and Lucero (2018).

Abstract:

Central venous access is often required in resuscitation of the critically ill or injured. Permanent pacemaker placement has been associated with stenosis of the ipsilateral central vein. We report the case of an 84-year-old male with history of permanent pacemaker placement that interfered with catheter placement in the contralateral central circulation.
