Abstract

Malpositioning of a central venous port in the internal thoracic vein can be difficult to check based on single-plane (PA) chest radiographs only, and can be managed by interventional radiology. Teaching Point: Central venous port malposition in the internal thoracic vein must be detected on postero-anterior chest radiograph and can be repositioned via endovascular procedure.
