PMID:  10756874     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Iatrogenic subclavian artery injury is a rare but recognized complication of central venous catheterization. The lesion is more severe and complex to treat when produced by large catheters such as dialysis catheters. A case is presented below with a discussion of vascular access for renal replacement therapy and the principles of treating penetrating arterial trauma at this location.
