Case Report - Brachial plexus palsy due to subclavian artery pseudo aneurysm from internal jugular cannulation|
Modi, Manisha P & Shah, Veena R
Internal jugular vein is the preferred route for central venous cannulation because of easy accessibility and high success rate. Arterial puncture is the most common complication, the reported incidence being 9.3%. However, brachial plexus palsy following arterial puncture is a rare complication of this procedure. We report a case of brachial plexus palsy due to compression by right subclavian pseudoaneurysm as a result of internal jugular vein cannulation in chronic renal failure patient.
