Abstract

Central venous cannulation through the right internal jugular vein, which is a widely used technique, may lead to complications at different stages, including catheter placement stage, indwelling stage and the removal stage. Malposition of the central venous catheter may also result in catastrophic consequences. In this article, we report 74-year-old male case with misplaced central venous catheter into the right vertebral vein in seventh vertebral foramen, which was detected at the catheter removal stage.
