Abstract

Continuous measurement of arterial pressure is frequently required in the perioperative management of critically ill patients and major surgeries. The complications following arterial cannulation include hematoma, thrombosis, ischemia, infection, aneurysm formation at the site of catheter insertion, and so on. The authors report a case of the sheared catheter during the arterial cannulation and the subsequent surgical removal of its remnant.
