Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter (PICC) are intravascular devices used on patients undergoing IV therapy. Insertion of these catheters can be achieved either by using the anatomical ...
A prospective study evaluating the timing, incidence and relationship of commonly occurring complications related to the use of peripherally-inserted central catheters. All subjects will r...
Peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) are increasingly used in intensive care unit (ICU) as an alternative to centrally inserted central catheters (CICCs) for intravenous infusio...
Peripherally inserted central catheters, or PICC lines, has now been successfully in use for many years, especially in the chemotherapeutic treatment of oncologic patients or in parenertal...
The purpose of this study is to compare two different marketed PICC (peripherally inserted central catheter)designs. Clotting rates, procedural bleeding and ease of catheter insertion will...
Centrally inserted totally implanted vascular access ports (PORTs) and peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) are widely used for the administration of chemotherapy. Our aim was to study the ...
Extracorporeal photopheresis (ECP) is a cell based immunomodulatory therapy in which the patient is attached intravenously to a cell separating machine. During ECP a patient's blood is collected via e...
Symptomatic venous thromboembolism associated with peripherally inserted central catheters predicts a worse survival in nasopharyngeal carcinoma: results of a large cohort, propensity score-matched analysis.
Despite increasing use, symptomatic venous thromboembolism (VTE) associated with peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) is a common complication in nonmetastatic nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) ...
The occurrence of upper extremity deep vein thrombosis (UEDVT) is not uncommon following peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) insertion. However, the risk factors associated with this conditi...
A peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) is recommended for the safe administration of anticancer agents. The effectiveness of synthetic polymer-coated and non-coated PICCs was compared.
Catheters that are inserted into a large central vein such as a SUBCLAVIAN VEIN or FEMORAL VEIN.
Catheters inserted into various locations within the heart for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes.
Catheters inserted into the URINARY BLADDER or kidney for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes.
Devices to be inserted into veins or arteries for the purpose of carrying fluids into or from a peripheral or central vascular location. They may include component parts such as catheters, ports, reservoirs, and valves. They may be left in place temporarily for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes.
Catheters designed to be left within an organ or passage for an extended period of time.
