Abstract:

The percutaneous catheterization of central veins is increasingly used in nephrological practice as a temporary or permanent vascular access. Some mechanical complications may occur during insertion of catheter such as misplaced catheter. In this report, we present a case that was misplaced the catheter in esophagus and to analyze the reason of catheter malposition during percutaneous tunneled hemodialysis catheter insertion.
