Abstract

Replacement of central venous catheters over a guidewire is now practiced throughout the United States. Although potential mechanical complications of this technique have been mentioned in the literature, few such complications have been documented. We report a patient who suffered a fatal contralateral hydrothorax following replacement of a central venous catheter using the guidewire technique.
