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...
In this prospective clinical study, the researchers investigate the incidence of catheter-related thrombosis and catheter-related infection during indwelling central venous catheterization...
Background: Central Venous catheter insertion technique and indwelling time are major risk factors for CVC colonisation. Colonisation occurs through microbial migration and biofilm formati...
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 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...
Autologous stem cell transplantation remains an integral treatment tool for certain childhood malignancies. In children, a central venous catheter is typically necessary to provide adequate flow rates...
A 70-year-old man underwent cardiac surgery including left atrial appendage closure. A pigtail catheter was inserted into the pericardial sac because of delayed tamponade. Removal of the catheter was ...
Children affected by oncological diseases are often fitted with central venous catheters. Catheter infection is a frequent complication, sometimes accompanied by thrombosis. We designed a case/c...
To evaluate the effects of peripheral introvascular central catheters (PICC) on the catheter-associated bloodstream infections (CRBSI) and the formations of catheter-related bloodstream infections.
Pulmonary embolism is common in critical care patients and carries significant morbidity and mortality. Concurrent risk of severe bleeding in this population may prohibit anticoagulation. Areas covere...
Placement of an intravenous catheter in the subclavian, jugular, or other central vein for central venous pressure determination, chemotherapy, hemodialysis, or hyperalimentation.
A hindrance to the passage of fluids through a CATHETER.
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.
Regional infusion of drugs via an arterial catheter. Often a pump is used to impel the drug through the catheter. Used in therapy of cancer, upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage, infection, and peripheral vascular disease.
Placement of a balloon-tipped catheter into the pulmonary artery through the antecubital, subclavian, and sometimes the femoral vein. It is used to measure pulmonary artery pressure and pulmonary artery wedge pressure which reflects left atrial pressure and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure. The catheter is threaded into the right atrium, the balloon is inflated and the catheter follows the blood flow through the tricuspid valve into the right ventricle and out into the pulmonary artery.
