Abstract

Pseudoaneurysm of the subclavian-vertebral artery junction (SVJ) is a rare complication of internal jugular vein catheter placement. Because of its retroclavicular location, arterial injury at the SVJ poses a significant therapeutic challenge. A case report and review of the literature are presented.
