Computed tomography-guided central venous catheter placement in a patient with superior vena cava and inferior vena cava occlusion



Computed tomography-guided central venous catheter placement in a patient with superior vena cava and inferior vena cava occlusion



Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology 22(1): 81-83



An 18-year-old man with a gastrointestinal hypomotility syndrome required lifelong parenteral nutrition. Both the superior and inferior vena cava were occluded. Computed tomography guidance was used to place a long-term central venous catheter via a large tributary to the azygos vein.
