  • David McGreevy Örebro University Hospital

Abstract

Background


Traumatic injury to the subclavian artery during central venous catheter (CVC) placement is rare but can be catastrophic. Standard open surgical treatment is challenging and associated with significant complications. Presented is a case of endovascular treatment of these injuries and associated complications.


Methods and Results


This is a description of the endovascular repair of a subclavian artery injury during CVC placement at Örebro University Hospital.


Conclusion


This case report suggests that endovascular repair of subclavian artery injuries a less invasive and may decrease the morbidity and mortality associated with open surgical repair.
