Abstract
A Swan-Ganz catheter is a useful monitoring device for measuring the pulmonary artery pressure, pulmonary capillary wedge pressure and cardiac output, but its insertion brings about many complications, including dysrhythmias, pulmonary artery rupture, thrombosis and infection. We report here on a case of malposition of a Swan-Ganz catheter in a 49-year-old female patient who had undergone liver transplantation due to alcoholic liver cirrhosis.
Key Words: complications; inferior phrenic vein; malposition; Swan-Ganz catheter
