Abstract

Permacath insertion using ultrasound has drastically reduced complications than those associated with blind puncture. We hereby report a case of entry of the permacath into the right femoral vein after through and through puncture of the right femoral artery. Use of real-time ultrasound, early clinical suspicion, timely diagnosis, and emergency surgery can avoid grave complications.
