Abstract

Inadvertent subclavian artery canulation although rare is a life threatening complication of central venous
canulation. Its prompt recognition and management by stent placement, thrombin injection, Angio seal or
gel foam embolization is essential to minimize fatal complications. We describe a case report of subclavian
arterial canulation which was recognized and managed percutaneously by covered stent placement without
complications.
