Approximately 10% is the complication rate of the central veous catheterization employing the landmark method. The image guided central venous puncture has been developed recently so that the procedural risk might be reduced. The technique is practically convenient and however its scientific evidence is not recognized well. We describe the backgrounds and the evidence of the image guided technique in this review.
