Abstract:

We report a case of long-term uneventful catheter use in a patient with previous recurrent vascular access dysfunction and infection. A single-lumen tunneled catheter was inserted into the left internal jugular vein after a failed attempt of dual-lumen permanent catheter placement. The follow-up since device implantation has exceeded 5 years without any complications related to vascular access.
