A novel technique for difficult removal of a neonatal peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC).
Summary of "A novel technique for difficult removal of a neonatal peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC)."
Peripherally inserted central catheters have become commonplace in the neonatal intensive care unit for long-term hyperalimentation and medication administration. Removal of the catheter at the conclusion of therapy is routinely relatively easy. We describe a case of a retained catheter that was unresponsive to typical noninvasive interventions and was subsequently removed using a unique non-surgical approach.

The administration of medication or fluid through a needle directly into the bone marrow. The technique is especially useful in the management of pediatric emergencies when intravenous access to the systemic circulation is difficult.
Yellow discoloration of the SKIN; MUCOUS MEMBRANE; and SCLERA in the NEWBORN. It is a sign of NEONATAL HYPERBILIRUBINEMIA. Most cases are transient self-limiting (PHYSIOLOGICAL NEONATAL JAUNDICE) occurring in the first week of life, but some can be a sign of pathological disorders, particularly LIVER DISEASES.
Removal and examination of tissue obtained through a transdermal needle inserted into the specific region, organ, or tissue being analyzed.
Accumulation of BILIRUBIN, a breakdown product of HEME PROTEINS, in the BLOOD during the first weeks of life. This may lead to NEONATAL JAUNDICE. The excess bilirubin may exist in the unconjugated (indirect) or the conjugated (direct) form. The condition may be self-limiting (PHYSIOLOGICAL NEONATAL JAUNDICE) or pathological with toxic levels of bilirubin.
A congenital or acquired condition of underdeveloped or degeneration of CARTILAGE in the BRONCHI. This results in a floppy bronchial wall making patency difficult to maintain. It is characterized by wheezing and difficult breathing.
Long-term venous access is essential when treating malignant diseases. We reviewed our experience with peripherally inserted central venous catheters (PICC) in children suffering from various malignan...
A peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) provides an important access for patients requiring prolonged intravenous infusion. However, intravascular migration and subsequent malposition of a PIC...
Peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC) have the advantage of limiting the risk of accidents during installation and are easy to remove. Its use in oncology remains debated because of possible...
To determine the equivalency of pressure measurements from peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) versus centrally inserted central venous catheters (CVCs) in vitro as well as in vivo. The in...
The purpose of this study is to test whether peripherally inserted central catheters can be safely placed on patients by intravenous team nurses at the bedside.
The purpose of the study is to perform the first clinical trial on human subjects using the Sonic Flashlight (SF) to guide placement of Peripherally Inserted Central Catheters (PICCs).
The purpose of this study is to compare two different marketed PICC (peripherally inserted central catheter)designs. Clotting rates, procedural bleeding and ease of catheter insertion will...
Background: Heparin is an anticoagulant commonly used in the neonatal population as a means to prevent catheter related occlusion and malfunction by thrombosis (clot). Given the recent o...
