Rights and Permissions

Percutaneous cannulation of central veins by Seldinger technique is a popular approach in intensive care settings. We report a case of embolization of a complete guide-wire during such a procedure. Our case differs from the few earlier reported cases in that subclavian vein was the entry site. While reviewing the available literature, we discuss few reasons and management of such a mishap.
