Abstract

Central venous catheterisation (CVC) is a common bedside invasive procedure done in medical practice. Even though it is a safe procedure when done with ultrasound guidance, diffculties and complications do occur even in experienced hands. Here, we describe the difficulties encountered in the form of the breakage of the guidewire while inserting a CVC in a patient with sickle cell disease.
