MANDEL, Nil Molinas
MetadataShow full item record
We describe the case of a woman with breast carcinoma who experienced deep venous thrombosis of the right lower extremity after placement of a double-lumen central venous chemotherapy port catheter in the left upper extremity. Color Doppler sonography revealed a linear tubular structure within the right common femoral vein and sonographic features of thrombosis, suggesting deep venous thrombosis secondary to displacement of the port catheter.
