Proper fixation of central venous catheters (CVCs) is an integral part of safety to avoid dislodgement and malfunction. However, the effectiveness of different CVC securement sutures is unknown.

The importance of a straight and stable central framework is beyond dispute. Many authors allude to technical aspects how to achieve the above-mentioned requirements. Far less is said about the contac...
Central venous catheterization is the placement of a catheter in such a manner that its tip is positioned within the proximal third of the superior vena cava, the right atrium or the inferior vena cav...
Placing central venous lines under ultrasonographic guidance reduces the complications of the procedure.
The aim of this study was to conduct an effective assessment of peripherally inserted central venous catheter (PICC)-related thrombosis based on machine learning (ML) techniques considering genotype.
To identify the most effective dressing for covering long-term central venous catheter exit site to prevent catheter-related infections and skin irritation in patients undergoing hematopoietic stem ce...
Context: The central venous catheter is used in intensive care units for several indications, including the administration of drugs with sclerosis potential, infusion solutions and hemodyn...
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 purpose of our study is to assess the effectiveness of Dermabond as a thoracic epidural fixation technique compared to both Mastisol and the Grip-Lok fixation bandage, two common, wide...
Central venous catheter (CVC) is an essential tool in the management of both medical and surgical patients. Establishing venous access is critically important and is sometimes technically ...
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...
Placement of an intravenous catheter in the subclavian, jugular, or other central vein for central venous pressure determination, chemotherapy, hemodialysis, or hyperalimentation.
The pressure within the CARDIAC ATRIUM. It can be measured directly by using a pressure catheter (see HEART CATHETERIZATION). It can be also estimated using various imaging techniques or other pressure readings such as PULMONARY CAPILLARY WEDGE PRESSURE (an estimate of left atrial pressure) and CENTRAL VENOUS PRESSURE (an estimate of right atrial pressure).
The blood pressure in the central large VEINS of the body. It is distinguished from peripheral venous pressure which occurs in an extremity.
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.
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.
