Safety and Efficacy Study of Angiotech Central Venous Catheter to Prevent Bacterial Catheter Colonization
The main purpose of this study is to determine if the Angiotech central venous catheter (CVC) is equal in effectiveness to a CVC coated with chlorhexidine and silver sulfadiazine in preventing bacterial catheter colonization. Other objectives of this study are to determine if the Angiotech CVC is equal in effectiveness to a CVC coated with chlorhexidine and silver sulfadiazine in preventing catheter-related local infection, and catheter-related bloodstream infection. This study will also assess the safety of the Angiotech CVC.

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 Nervous System Infections
Pathogenic infections of the brain, spinal cord, and meninges. DNA VIRUS INFECTIONS; RNA VIRUS INFECTIONS; BACTERIAL INFECTIONS; MYCOPLASMA INFECTIONS; SPIROCHAETALES INFECTIONS; fungal infections; PROTOZOAN INFECTIONS; HELMINTHIASIS; and PRION DISEASES may involve the central nervous system as a primary or secondary process.
Central Nervous System Bacterial Infections
Bacterial infections of the brain, spinal cord, and meninges, including infections involving the perimeningeal spaces.
Infections resulting from the use of catheters. Proper aseptic technique, site of catheter placement, material composition, and virulence of the organism are all factors that can influence possible infection.
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.
The study investigates the efficacy of a catheter with antibacterial surface coating in preventing central venous catheter related infection and the effect of an intensive hygiene and cath...
The clinical study aims at providing data on antimicrobial efficiency and a supposed additional preventive effect on catheter-related infections of a catheter with antibacterial surface co...
Most children admitted to paediatric intensive care units (PICU) need to have medicines given to them into their veins using a narrow tube, so they do not need repeated injections. This tu...
Bloodstream infections are common in Intensive Care Units (ICUs). The need of a central venous line increases the risk of bacteremia and central venous catheter (CVC) related infections. T...
Central venous catheters (CVCs) are used in patient care for such purposes as the administration of medication, fluids, blood products and for functions such as hemodialysis and plasmapher...
OBJECTIVE:: To determine the success rate and complications of using the external jugular (EJ) vein for central venous access in pediatric patients. METHODS:: Prospective cohort study of children who...
Central venous catheters have become a mainstay in the care of critically ill patients but, unfortunately, are associated with a significant risk of bloodstream infections. There are 80,000 catheter-r...
Central venous catheter placement can cause a variety of complications, such as catheter fracture, loss of the guide wire and embolization. In the case reported a large bore central venous catheter wa...
INTRODUCTION: Central venous catheters are used commonly in critical care. Evidence-based practices to prevent catheter-related bloodstream infections have been widely promoted. One such practice incl...
Central venous catheter placement is indicated in many situations, and an increasing number of patients require temporary and long-term central catheters. Frequently, patients who have undergone multi...
