Abstract:

Central venous catheters (CVC) are widely used in clinics to gain vascular access, but the risk and prevalence of catheter-related complications remains a serious issue. We report a long-term dialysis catheter accidentally inserted into the mediastinum via the right jugular vein in a hemodialysis patient. We also review complications associated with vascular catheterization and propose immediate therapeutic interventions for such cases.
