POSTOPERATIVE DIAGNOSIS:
Right chest non healing wound.

PROCEDURE:
Right-sided wound exploration and excision of retained tunneled
central venous catheter cuff.

DESCRIPTION OF PROCEDURE:
At that point, I extended the right chest incision to approximately 1 cm in length.
I was able to then identify what appeared to be the felt cuff of the
previous catheter, which was then separated from its local attachments
and removed in a single piece. The wound was then explored. No
residual cuff appeared to be left behind.
