CORZO C, Roque J; PARRA G, Rodolfo  and  MELENDEZ F, Héctor J. Guía retenida y anudada extravascular durante un cateterismo venoso central: reporte de un caso. Rev. Univ. Ind. Santander. Salud [online]. 2014, vol.46, n.1, pp.61-64. ISSN 0121-0807.

Central venous catheterization is a common procedure in the medical practice of specialists of emergency rooms, critical care and surgery rooms. The use of central venous catheters is associated with mechanical infectious and thrombotic complications. Within the mechanical complications, those associated with the guidewire, especially extravascular entrapments are very infrequent. This work presents a case of a female patient with extravascular entrapment of the guidewire and pneumothorax as complications of right subclavian venous catheterization
