Malposition of central venous catheter due to radiation-induced venous stenosis

0

CXR was done postinsertion to confirm the position of CVC, which revealed that the tip of the catheter was in the right internal jugular vein (IJV)”

Extract:

“The day before surgery, using the standard Seldinger technique with portable ultrasound (ACUSON, Siemens) guidance, the right subclavian vein (SV) was cannulated with 7 Fr triple-lumen central venous pressure catheter (arrow) under all aseptic precautions. All the three ports of CVC were aspirated for blood and fixed at 13 cm. CXR was done postinsertion to confirm the position of CVC, which revealed that the tip of the catheter was in the right internal jugular vein (IJV). The catheter was withdrawn and reinserted correctly through the right IJV.”
