    Abstract

    Placing an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator is a challenge in the presence of bilateral venous obstruction of the upper extremities. We describe a case where venous access was obtained by passing a hydrophilic wire from the superior vena cava through collaterals to the infraclavicular region.
