Lymphatic leak complicating central venous catheter insertion.

PMID:  15886933     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Many of the risks associated with central venous access are well recognized. We report a case of inadvertent lymphatic disruption during the insertion of a tunneled central venous catheter in a patient with raised left and right atrial pressures and severe pulmonary hypertension, which led to significant hemodynamic instability. To our knowledge, this rare complication is previously unreported.
