Catheterization - Incorrect Placement of Swan-Ganz Catheter with Subsequent Embolism and Stroke. This medical exhibit features multiple images describing correct vs. incorrect placement of a Swan-Ganz catheter into the right jugular region. The medical illustrations picture the catheter inserted through the jugular vein into the adjacent carotid artery. Over time a thrombus developed at the catheter tip, which eventually broke free resulting in a clot to the brain and subsequent brain injury.
