Abstract

We report a case of vascular assess challenge on a patient with severe kyphoscoliosis and joint contractures. Multiple internal jugular (IJ) central venous catheters (CVC) and a peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) catheterization were attempted via ultrasound guidance and all resulted in malposition. the picc attempt fortuitously pushed a malpositioned IJ into the correct position. computed tomography (CT) demonstrated a narrow thoracic inlet with no definite venous stenoses. therefore, severe chest wall deformity, a narrow thoracic inlet and inadequate positioning of the patient secondary to his contractures all contributed to the malposition of the PICC and CVCs.
