Abstract
Central catheterization has been widely employed because of its various uses. However, there are many complications which are classified as mechanical complications, infectious complications, and thrombotic complications. Especially, subclavian catheterization has a high rate of mechanical complication such as pneumothrax and hemothorax. We experienced an unusual complication of central catheter misplacement in thoracic surgery and identified it with video assisted thoracoscopic equipment. We consider hemothorax to be the cause of this type of central catheter misplacement.
Key Words: Central venous catheterization, Hemothorax, Video-assisted thoracic surgery
