Abstract

We present a postoperative CT study of a case of blunt duodenal rupture. The findings of retroperitoneal extraluminal free air and free fluid that are caused by an inadvertent insertion of a femoral venous catheter simulate postoperative duodenal leak. The early recognition of this misplaced indwelling catheter by radiologists avoided an unneccessary reexploration.
