Central venous catheterization plays an important role in patients with end-stage renal disease undergoing hemodialysis. Placement of a right subclavian hemodialysis catheter was complicated by looping and entrapment of the guidewire. Computed tomographic and three-dimensional scans were essential in locating and determining that the guidewire was outside the vessel.
