Ultrasound (US)-guided central venous catheterization is now considered standard of care according to recent clinical evidence, at least considering jugular vein approach. Recent trials suggested that even US-guided subclavian approach could be more effective that landmark technique. However, studies comparing both sites employing US are still lacking.
We, therefore, designed a non-inferiority randomized controlled trial to compare these sites, both using US guidance, according to immediate complications following central venous catheterization.

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...
The purpose of this study is to compare the differences in central venous catheter insertion time, success rate, and complication between the Seldinger and modified Seldinger technique for...
To evaluate the effect of a 2-stage approach to the internal jugular vein when performing a central venous catheterization compared to the traditional one stage approach on the incidence o...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the success rate using ultrasound as guidance during central venous cannulation in pediatric cardiac surgical patients.
The main intention of this study is to compare two ultrasound-guided central venous catheterization procedures namely: real-time, ultrasound-guided, in plane axillary vein catheterization ...
Central venous catheterization is widely used in patients on hemodialysis. A rare complication associated with the clinical use of central venous catheters is perforation of the heart or major vessels...
Central venous catheterization (CVC) is a basic requirement for many medical specialties. Simulated training in CVC may allow the acquisition of this competency but few reports have established a vali...
To compare internal jugular vein and subclavian vein access for central venous catheterization in terms of success rate and complications.
It remains unclear whether we have to interrupt mechanical ventilation during infraclavicular subclavian venous catheterization. In practice, the clinicians' choice about lung deflation depends on the...
Critically ill and hospitalized patients often require invasive procedures as a part of their medical care. Each procedure carries a unique set of risks and associated complications, but common to all...
Placement of an intravenous catheter in the subclavian, jugular, or other central vein for central venous pressure determination, chemotherapy, hemodialysis, or hyperalimentation.
The blood pressure in the central large VEINS of the body. It is distinguished from peripheral venous pressure which occurs in an extremity.
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.
