Abstract

Carotid injury occurring during venous jugular catheterization is a rare but potentially dramatic event. We report a case of compressive cervical hematoma associated with haemothorax occurred after common carotid artery injury during internal jugular venous catheterization. The diagnosis and management of this type of complication are discussed.

La plaie carotidienne lors du cathétérisme jugulaire veineux est un accident rare mais pouvant être dramatique. Nous rapportons un cas d'hématome cervical compressif avec hémothorax survenu à la suite d'une plaie de l'artère carotide commune au décours d'un cathétérisme veineux jugulaire interne. Le diagnostic et la prise en charge de ce type de complication sont discutés.

Keywords: Carotid artery injury; compressive cervical hematoma; internal jugular venous catheterization.
