Incidence of catheter tract hemorrhage (CTH) after initial ventriculostomy placement ranges from 10 to 34%. We investigated CTH incidence in the Clot Lysis: Evaluation of Accelerated Resolution of Intraventricular Hemorrhage Phase III trial.
A broken TIVAD catheter segment was discovered lodged within the right ventricle of a man presenting with chest pain. The catheter removal is detailed.
The guide extension catheter is frequently used in current percutaneous coronary intervention, and the GuideLiner (Vascular Solutions Inc., Minneapolis, MN) has been the standard guide extension catheter. Recently, the Guideplus (Nipro, Osaka, Japan) has emerged as a new guide extension catheter. The aim of the present study was to compare device performance between the Guideplus and GuideLiner.
Transradial coronary angiography (TRC) can be performed with a one-catheter approach for the right and left coronary ostium (R/LCO). We investigated the performance of a special diagnostic catheter widely used for the one-catheter-approach, the Tiger (Tiger II, TerumoTM).
Delayed visceral organ perforations after PD catheter insertions are extremely rare. We report two patients who presented with asymptomatic visceral perforation from their buried PD catheters. Five months after a laparoscopic buried PD catheter insertion in a 92-year-old man PD was initiated; bile and bowel contents were noted in the PD effluent. He subsequently expired (from pneumonia) to autopsy revealed the PD catheter within the small bowel. Despite this perforation, there was no evidence of peritonitis...
Study protocol for a multicentre, randomised, controlled trial to assess the effectiveness of antimicrobial central venous catheters versus ordinary central venous catheters at reducing catheter related infections in critically ill Chinese patients.
Catheter use is associated with many complications and is an iatrogenic source of morbidity and mortality in intensive care units (ICU). The catheter being studied (Certofix Protect) was developed to reduce the risk of catheter related infections. This clinical trial will compare the safety and efficiency of Certofix Protect with that of an ordinary Certofix catheter.
A multilumen access catheter (MAC) is a large-bore catheter that prevents kinking or collapsing. Misplacement is a frequently reported complication.
This study investigated the incidence, rationales, and associated factors of inappropriate urinary catheter use among hospitalized older patients by gender. A longitudinal study of 321 patients with urinary catheter was conducted. Demographic factors, present health factors, urinary catheter factors, and indications of catheter use were collected. A total of 53.7% of urinary catheter-days were inappropriate. For both men and women, there was no significant difference in the incidence and common rationales o...
Coronary angiography and percutaneous coronary intervention using the radial approach are becoming more frequent. Pronounced guide catheter manipulation in cases with tortuous access routes may lead to severe catheter kinking or knotting. The purpose of this review article is to present several techniques to resolve radial access catheter knots and kinks. First, simple maneuvers such as gentle traction, rotation, and guidewire advancement can often resolve minor kinking; however, complex loops and kinks are...
The robot-assisted catheter system can increase operating distance thus preventing the exposure radiation of the surgeon to X-ray for endovascular catheterization. However, few designs have considered the collision protection between the catheter tip and the vessel wall. This paper presents a novel catheter operating system based on tissue protection to prevent vessel puncture caused by collision. The integrated haptic interface not only allows the operator to feel the real force feedback, but also combines...
Varan B, Yakut K, Harman A. Transcatheter retrieval of embolized catheter using venovenous loop in a neonate. Turk J Pediatr 2018; 60: 113-115. Umbilical venous catheters are reliable in providing adequate medical care for premature babies however complications include infections, bleeding, thrombosis, catheter occlusion and migration of a piece of catheter to other parts in the body. Here, we present a case with migration of a piece of umbilical venous catheter which has been trapped between hepatic vein a...
To determine the impact of applying the best available clinical evidence on the preventive measures to reduce the rate of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) in adult intensive care units (ICU). Methods: Data were collected from adult ICUs (28 beds) from 2008 to 2016. The proper use of silicon catheter, aseptic insertion technique, emptying bag three-fourth via close circuit, the use of appropriate size catheter, securing the draining tube on the thigh to keep catheter bag below pa...
Detailed substrate mapping is important for catheter ablation. However, the influence of the electrode spacing of the mapping catheter on the substrate map has not been well clarified. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of the electrode spacing of the mapping catheter on the voltage of the substrate map.
This descriptive survey identified factors contributing to phlebitis among 46 adult inpatients using a systematic random sample. The visual infusion phlebitis score was used for assessment. All participants had phlebitis, with stage 4 being most frequent. Factors identified were gender (males-91.7%); immunosuppression (human immunodeficiency virus-63.0%; diabetes-100%; immunosuppressive drugs-100%; absolute leucocyte count 1-90.9%); site of catheterization (dorsum of wrist-100%); catheter dwell time (2-4 da...
Central venous catheter use is common among patients undergoing haemodialysis. Catheter related vascular thrombosis is a frequent complication, which results in catheter dysfunction. This may eliminate the affected vein as a potential route of vascular access and leads to significant morbidity of the limbs involved. Despite increasing prevalence, there is a dearth of evidence-based guidelines for managing such catheter related thrombi, often leading to treatment dilemmas in clinical practice. Minimizing the...
Multiple markers LA remodeling, including LA shape, correlate with outcomes in AF. Catheter ablation is an important treatment of AF, but better tools are needed to determine which patients will benefit. In this study we use particle based modeling to quantitatively assess LA shape, and determine to what degree it predicts AF recurrence after catheter ablation.
Umbilical catheters are commonly used in the neonatal period for blood sampling or for administering medication or parenteral nutrition. The position of the catheter is usually confirmed with radiography. However, many complications associated with the use of umbilical catheters, such as liver collections from extravasation or vascular thrombosis, are not apparent on radiographs but can be easily diagnosed with ultrasound. This pictorial review illustrates the sonographic findings of complications that shou...
Establishing vascular access is a common neonatal intensive care unit procedure. The extended dwell peripheral intravenous (EPIV) catheter is a 6-cm and 8-cm silicone catheter for peripheral vein insertion, which is a newer vascular access device than peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) and peripheral intravenous (PIV) catheter. Extended dwell peripheral intravenous catheters have been widely used in adults but evidence in neonates is lacking.
Radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) of the cavo-tricuspid isthmus (CTI) is a common treatment for atrial flutter (AFL). However, achieving bi-directional CTI conduction block may be difficult, partly due to catheter instability.
Successful catheter ablation is limited by both poor spatial resolution of abnormal local signals and inability to deliver an effective lesion due to poor tissue contact. We report first worldwide use of the Intellanav MiFi OI catheter (Boston Scientific), providing ultra-high density mapping and incorporating a 'DirectSense' algorithm to measure local tissue impedance (LI).
Ventricular arrhythmias are responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths every year. Catheter ablation of ventricular tachycardia (VT) is an essential component of the management of these life-threatening arrhythmias. However, in many patients, despite medical and interventional therapy, VT recurs. Further, some VT substrates (mid-myocardial, left ventricular summit, intra-septal) are not easily targeted, due to limitations of currently available technology. In certain clinical settings, ventricular fibr...
Left ventricle (LV) assist, which refers to the use of a mini-pump or catheter implanted across the aortic valve connected to the pump, can promote myocardial recovery after left ventricle failure. However, conventional LV assist catheters compress the aortic valve, which can induce aortic insufficiency. Here we describe a novel LV assist catheter containing a retractable stent at its distal end that may prevent such insufficiency. The device was tested in six goats in which the coronary artery was ligated ...
The use of subcutaneous catheter devices has increased over the past two decades along with its associated infections. One of the complications is infective endocarditis (IE), which usually occurs on the valves of the heart. However, IE can rarely occur on the atrial septal wall. The most common pathogens associated with catheter-related IE are staphylococcus bacteria, and it is rarely caused by fungi. We present a case of a 75-year-old Caucasian female with infective endocarditis located on the right side...
Implanted intrathecal drug delivery systems (IDDS) are increasingly used in the treatment of spasticity and in patients with refractory pain. Literature discussing complications associated with intrathecal pump placement is widely available. However, reports of complications following the removal of chronically placed catheters are scarce. We reviewed our series of patients who had surgery to remove the intrathecal catheter.
Percutaneous insertion of peritoneal dialysis catheters is theoretically most preferred by nephrologists because of the advantages of bedside performing, surgery independence, and minimal injury over other procedures of catheter placement such as open surgical dissection or laparoscopic operation. However, blindly placing catheters in the percutaneous procedure brings the risk of catheter malposition or bowel perforation; this largely retarded it's implementation. We had previously developed a novel techniq...
