Abstract

Infraclavicular subclavian puncture may be performed with fluoroscopic observation of the needle trajectory. In 92 patients so implanted between July 1985 and May 1987 uneventful venous access was achieved in 90, one was unsuccessful and one patient had subcutaneous emphysema, a complication rate of 2.2%.
