Abstract

Introduction: The structure of the hemiazygos vein is often various in different
individuals. There is a normal variation that connects the ascending hemiazygos vein to
the left innominate vein, parallel with the subclavian and internal jugular veins.
Case Presentation: A 33-year-old man who was a known case of End Stage Renal
Disease (ESRD) was admitted to the emergency department due to Double Lumen
(DL) dysfunction. The emergency physician inserted DL in his left jugular vein on
the ultrasound guide. The result of angiography showed that DL was placed in his left
hemiazygos vein.
Conclusions: This condition should be considered as part of the anatomical variation of
the left hemiazygos vein during DL insertion by emergency physicians.
