    We report a 40-year-old woman who developed a fatal acute cardiac tamponade after balloon angioplasty for central venous stenosis (CVS) related to hemodialysis. Retrograde and antegrade recanalization followed by balloon angioplasty was carried out through the right-femoral and left internal jugular vein approach.

However, the patient suffered sudden-onset shortness of breath and tachycardia, followed by bradycardia and cardiac arrest, apneic and coma immediately after the procedure.
