Inadvertent retrograde cannulation of right internal jugular vein: A Case report on erroneous positioning of catheter tip in superior jugular venous bulb


Mohd Anas Khan

Background: Percutaneous retrograde cannulation of the internal jugular vein (IJV) is a widely used technique for cerebral venous sampling in intensive care treatment for Central Venous Pressure (CVP) monitoring and administration of pressor agents, blood products, and for frequent blood sampling. Ultrasound (USG) guided central venous cannulation is a preferred modality to lower the errors while insertion and reduce the complication rates.
