Abstract

Complications associated with the use of the Swan-Ganz catheters including coiling and knotting of the catheter in the central venous system or in the chambers of the heart, often with disastrous consequences. We report a case of knotting of a Swan-Ganz catheter in the superior vena cava which necessitated surgical removal via the right internal jugular vein.
