Abstract: Central venous access is an essential part of perioperative management for infants and children undergoing cardiac surgery for congenital heart disease. In addition, a thorough knowledge of the techniques for cannulation and placement of venous lines from the various percutaneously accessible sites is an important aspect of cardiac catheterization in this patient population. In the first of a series of papers describing the various approaches to venous access, we describe percutaneous cannulation of the subclavian vein. The standard approach, as well as potential difficulties, and how to overcome them, are described, as also the complications associated with this approach.
