    Phrenic nerve palsy has been recognized as a complication of catheter ablation with a prevalence of 0.11 0.48% after atrial fibrillation ablation, independent of the type of ablation catheter or energy source, likely due to the anatomical relationship of the nerves. This report describes a case...

    Umbilical venous catheterization, when used, special precautions should be taken and guidelines followed. We present a case of a 3660 gram infant who suffered cardiac tamponade from a hyperosmolar infusion through an indwelling umbilical venous catheter. The infant survived as a result of early...
