Background: Bacterial colonization of peripheral nerve catheters is frequent, although infection is relatively rare. With central venous catheters, the tunneling of catheter into the subcutaneous tissue significantly decreases catheter colonization and catheter-related sepsis.
Purpose: The aim of this study is to evaluate the incidence of bacterial colonization in adult patients with femoral tunnelized perineural nerve catheters.
Methods: A total of 338 patients with femoral catheter will be included in the study. The patients will be randomized to be included in the control group (without tunnelling) or in the group with catheter tunneled 2-3 cm subcutaneously. After removal, catheter will be analyzed for colonization (primary outcome). Quantitative culture will be used as described by Brun-Buisson for intravascular catheters. The site of insertion will be monitored daily for any signs of infection (secondary outcome).
Perspective: To show the incidence of femoral perineural catheter colonization is low with subcutaneous tunneling
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Prevention

The main purpose of this study is to determine if the Angiotech central venous catheter (CVC) is equal in effectiveness to a CVC coated with chlorhexidine and silver sulfadiazine in preven...
This is a double blinded rct to evaluate the effect of the UroShield SAW transducer on preventing bacterial colonization in longterm indwelling catheters. The duration of the trial is 30 d...
This study is designed to compare femoral perineural catheter insertion distances, in order to help determine which is the best for pain relief after knee surgery. Hypothesis: the quality...
A continuous adductor canal block provides analgesia after surgical procedures of the knee. Recent neuroanatomic descriptions of the thigh and knee led us to speculate that local anesthetic deposited ...
Pharyngeal colonization and drug resistance profiles of Morraxella catarrrhalis, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, and Haemophilus influenzae among HIV infected children attending ART Clinic of Felegehiwot Referral Hospital, Ethiopia.
Asymptomatic pharyngeal colonization by potential bacteria is the primary reservoir for bacterial species within a population and is considered a prerequisite for development of major childhood diseas...
Perineural spread is not uncommon feature in carcinoma of the head and neck. On the contrary, perineural spread in pelvic malignancies has been rarely reported. This report is the first report about p...
Host pathways mediating changes in immune states elicited by intestinal microbial colonization are incompletely characterized. Here we describe alterations of the host immune state induced by coloniza...
Perineural dexamethasone and intravenous (IV) dexamethasone have been shown to prolong peripheral nerve block duration. The effects of perineural and IV dexamethasone have only been compared at doses ...
Physicochemical property of fimbriated (FIMBRIAE, BACTERIAL) and non-fimbriated bacteria of attaching to cells, tissue, and nonbiological surfaces. It is a factor in bacterial colonization and pathogenicity.
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.

Sepsis, septicaemia and blood poisoning
Septicaemia (another name for blood poisoning) refers to a bacterial infection of the blood, whereas sepsis can also be caused by viral or fungal infections. Sepsis is not just limited to the blood and can affect the whole body, including the organ...
