Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Catheterization, Central Venous
Placement of an intravenous catheter in the subclavian, jugular, or other central vein for central venous pressure determination, chemotherapy, hemodialysis, or hyperalimentation.
Central Venous Pressure
The blood pressure in the central large VEINS of the body. It is distinguished from peripheral venous pressure which occurs in an extremity.
Central Nervous System Venous Angioma
A vascular anomaly characterized by a radial or wedge-shaped arrangement of dilated VEINS draining into a larger vein in the brain, spinal cord, or the meninges. Veins in a venous angioma are surrounded by normal nervous tissue, unlike a CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM CAVERNOUS HEMANGIOMA that lacks intervening nervous tissue. Drainage of venous angioma is fully integrated with the body's venous system, therefore, in most cases there is no clinical signs and rare bleeding.
Impaired venous blood flow or venous return (venous stasis), usually caused by inadequate venous valves. Venous insufficiency often occurs in the legs, and is associated with EDEMA and sometimes with VENOUS STASIS ULCERS at the ankle.
Rare vascular anomaly involving a communication between the intracranial and extracranial venous circulation via diploe, the central spongy layer of cranial bone. It is often characterized by dilated venous structures on the scalp due to abnormal drainage from the intracranial venous sinuses. Sinus pericranii can be congenital or traumatic in origin.
A 5-year-old boy born with a congenital heart defect had insertion of an epicardial pacemaker that was found on routine evaluation to have been displaced into the rectovesical pouch. He underwent tran...
Isolated persistent left superior caval vein is a rare anomaly of the systemic venous return. We describe an unsuccessful pacemaker implantation through the right subclavian vein, which later turned o...
ABSTRACT: Since the introduction of central venous catheterization for monitoring of the venous pressure, fluid infusion and hyperalimentation, the literature has been full of serious life-threatening...
A 65-year-old man developed respiratory distress during insertion of a central venous catheter (CVC). The presence of gas in the pulmonary trunk and ascending aorta was observed on computed tomography...
Central venous catheterization (CVC) in ICU is very common. It is associated with many complications. These complications are now well identified in the literature. They are primarily mech...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the peripheral IV continuous infusion without the insertion of central venous vascular access method in the achieve...
Objectives: 1. To study the validity and reliability of estimation of the central venous pressure by measurement of internal jugular vein size using 2-dimensional ultrasound....
Hypothesis #1: Residents who complete a structured, ultrasound guided simulation training protocol will have superior skills at central venous catheter (CVC) insertion on actual patients...
To test the hypothesis that approaching the internal jugular vein with the needle bevel down would produce less injury to the vessel wall compared to the bevel up approach during central v...
