Abstract

During routine placement of a subclavian central venous catheter for cancer chemotherapy, a sheath was inadvertently placed into the aortic arch, through the left lung. We describe a technique for transthoracic compression of the aortic injury using the sheath in conjunction with an occlusion balloon catheter.
