A 30-year-old woman with renal failure required central venous access for hemodialysis. Angiography demonstrated chronic total occlusion of the internal jugular and subclavian veins, as well as total occlusion of the superior vena cava at the level of the right atrium. Attempts to obtain access by conventional methods failed, and the patient was referred for inside-out access using the Surfacer® Inside-Out® Access Catheter System.
