Endovascular Management of Iatrogenic Subclavian Artery Catheterization During Single-Incision Chest Port Placement

Issam M. Kably, MD; Dmitriy Meshkov, MD

From University of Miami Miller School of Medicine/Jackson Memorial Hospital, Miami, Florida.

In this case, during routine double port placement utilizing single-incision subcutaneous infraclavicular approach, inadvertent catheterization of the right subclavian artery at the origin of the right vertebral artery was noted. The defect was repaired with a novel approach utilizing a 7 mm x 7 mm HyperForm compliant balloon (Covidien) under fluoroscopic guidance.
