Central venous cannulation is one of the most commonly performed procedures for critically ill patients in the emergency room. Serious complications like a rupture of subclavian artery may occur during this procedure. We report a case of successful stent graft deployment for iatrogenic ruptured subclavian artery after attempted right subclavian vein catheterization in a 31 year-old female patient with hypovolemic shock due to cervical os laceration during vaginal delivery.
