Here we report a case of guide wire loss during femoral venous cannulation and literature review” Fan and Song (2016).

Abstract:

Placement of a central venous catheter (CVC) is a common procedure, often replaced by femoral vein cannulation. The overall complication rate is 12 – 15%. Loss of a complete guide wire into the circulation is a rare and preventable complication. Here we report a case of guide wire loss during femoral venous cannulation and literature review.
