The incidence of central venous catheterization is increasing worldwide. It is important to consult an experienced physician after a failed procedure or in the case of complications. The use of ultrasound during the procedure will increase its success. Left internal jugular vein catheterization is at high risk for vascular injury due to its anatomical position. A 65-year-old female patient with chronic renal failure was referred to our interventional radiology unit with suspected innominant vein perforation. We aimed to present our successful endovascular treatment method in the patient.
