Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Arterial complications from inadvertent arterial puncture in intravenous drug abusers are well recognised. Most reports describe injury to the femoral artery with occasional reports of brachial and radial artery injury. A case of subclavian artery injury is described in this paper, and the pathophysiology and treatment of intraarterial drug injection discussed.
