|Title:||Delayed fatal cardiac perforation by an indwelling long introducer sheath following transjugular intrahepatic portocaval stents (TIPS).||Austin Authors:||Fitt, Gregory J ;Thomson, K;Hennessy, O F||Affiliation:||University of Melbourne, Department of Radiology, Austin Hospital, Heidelberg, Victoria, Australia||Issue Date:||4-Mar-1993||Publication information:||Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology; 16(2): 109-10||Abstract:||Iatrogenic cardiac perforation is a recognized complication of central venous catheterization. We report a fatal complication by a 10F introducer sheath which was left in place and resulted in perforation of the right atrial wall 8 h later. This case is reported to emphasize the increased risk of cardiac perforation from large caliber rigid sheaths which should be withdrawn immediately after completion of the procedure.||Gov't Doc #:||8485740||URI:||http://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/13388||Journal:||Cardiovascular and interventional radiology||URL:||https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/8485740||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||Catheterization.adverse effects
