Mobilized peripheral blood stem cell apheresis via Hickman catheter in pediatric patients.

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 drainage catheter tangled around a closed left atrial appendage.

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 ...

Application of infrared thermography in diagnosing peripherally inserted central venous catheter infections in children with cancer.

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...

Risk Analysis of Catheter-related Bloodstream Infection and Thrombosis in Patients with Blood Diseases Undergoing Peripheral Introvascular Central Catheter (PICC).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
