Abstract

Translumbar catheters offer an alternative life-saving option in patients without conventional dialysis access, though their use and complication rates are poorly understood. We report the first case in the medical literature of a translumbar catheter inducing a central venous stenosis. This occult sequela converted what is usually a subclinical complication from an arteriovenous graft thrombectomy into a life-threatening one. This unusual clinical presentation highlights the need for clinicians to recognize the potential serious implications of translumbar catheter-induced occult central venous stenosis.
