Central venous catheterization is a routine vascular-access procedure; however, it may be associated with life-threatening complications such as arterial puncture, leading to arterial occlusion, embolism, pseudoaneurysm formation, vessel laceration or dissection, haemopneumothorax or massive haemorrhage. We report a case of an accidental subclavian artery perforation with a wide dialysis catheter. A Jostent endovascular covered stent was deployed to seal the deficit. The specific device can easily conform to the anatomical configuration of most peripheral vessels, constituting a good alternative to open repair in cases of accidental vessel puncture.
