COMPLI-PICC: Study on Picclines' Complications

2017-01-12 04:38:22 | BioPortfolio


This is a prospective monocentric study of PICC Line complications use in 5 medical and one surgical units of Brest Medical University Hospital.

To evaluate the incidence of the following complications: infections, thromboses, mechanical and hemorrhagic, at month 3 post-intervention.

Also evaluating:

- the management of these PICC Line related complications,

- risk factors for such complications,

- and the mortality-related outcomes.


All eligible patients fulfilling the inclusion criteria, after PICC Line placement, will receive oral and written patient information describing the study deployment and follow-up. Patients will be followed up until PICC Line removal if it occurs during the first 3 months after placement or until death if it occurs during the first 3 months, or during 3 months in the absence of complications.

- Infectious complications are described in accordance with IDSA 2009 guidelines and include bloodstream infection, endocarditis, local infection and septic thrombophlebitis.

- Thrombotic complications are defined as symptomatic, deep, or superficial venous thrombosis, confirmed by Ultrasound and Echo-Doppler or asymptomatic venous thrombosis diagnosed fortuitously.

- Mechanical complications are defined as impairments related to PICC Line device: occlusion, rupture, accidental removal.

- Hemorrhagic complications are defined as hematoma or bleedings of puncture site.

In the event of PICC Line-related complications, patient will be followed up for an additional 3 months, from the date of complication diagnosis, i.e. maximum follow-up duration of 6 months.

Each week during the first month, then once monthly during the follow-up (i.e. W1, W2, W3, W4, M2, M3, +/- M4, M5, M6), all patients data related to the PICC Line retention or removal, use and all its related complications will be collected.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A cultured line of C3H mouse FIBROBLASTS that do not adhere to one another and do not express CADHERINS.

Tuberculosis resistant to chemotherapy with two or more ANTITUBERCULAR AGENTS, including at least ISONIAZID and RIFAMPICIN. The problem of resistance is particularly troublesome in tuberculous OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS associated with HIV INFECTIONS. It requires the use of second line drugs which are more toxic than the first line regimens. TB with isolates that have developed further resistance to at least three of the six classes of second line drugs is defined as EXTENSIVELY DRUG-RESISTANT TUBERCULOSIS.

Cell line derived from SF21 CELLS which are a cell line isolated from primary explants of SPODOPTERA FRUGIPERDA pupal tissue.

A cell line established in 1962 from disaggregated Swiss albino mouse embryos. This fibroblast cell line is extremely popular in research.

A cell line derived from cultured tumor cells.
