PMID:  8894869     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
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.
