During such an emergency and placing without imaging guidance, sometimes inadvertent placement of CVC in subclavian artery (SCA) can occur” Shaw et al (2019).

Abstract:

The frequency of placing a central venous catheter (CVC) has increased and it is often performed in emergency situation for venous access. During such an emergency and placing without imaging guidance, sometimes inadvertent placement of CVC in subclavian artery (SCA) can occur. We hereby describe an unusual case of successful endovascular management of inadvertently inserted CVC in SCA by covered stent graft placement along with proper clinical context to manage a case of misplaced venous catheter in left SCA.
