A 40-year-old woman presented to our stroke center for a left middle cerebral artery embolic occlusion. This was successfully treated with mechanical thrombectomy using a stent retriever and balloon guide catheter aspiration. The patient was discharged home in good condition on clopidogrel but returned 2 months later with a contralateral right middle cerebral artery embolic occlusion. This was also successfully treated, this time with a stent retriever and local aspiration (Sol-Arc technique). She was once again discharged in good condition but with warfarin and an implanted loop recorder...

REVIEW
Joseph Caldwell, Hawa Edriss, Kenneth Nugent
Ascites is a debilitating condition affecting patients with end-stage liver disease and advanced abdominal malignancies. Serial paracentesis can reduce symptoms in these patients; indwelling peritoneal catheters provide an alternative approach that allows patients to manage their symptoms at home. A literature search was conducted to identify studies with at least 20 patients published in the last 15 years that reported indwelling catheter placement in patients with chronic ascites. Fourteen studies with 957 patients (687 with malignancy and 270 with cirrhosis) were reviewed...

We report a case of peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) migration and perforation of the left internal jugular vein in a home health setting in an 80-year-old female. A left sided PICC was placed for treatment of diverticulitis following hospital discharge. She complained of sudden onset left sided neck pain immediately after starting an infusion of vancomycin. In the emergency department the injury was identified by portable chest radiograph and computed tomography of her neck. Following removal of the line, she had an uneventful course...

Nursing homes present a unique challenge for implementing infection prevention and control practices while striving to maintain a home-like environment. Medical devices such as urinary catheters and central venous catheters have become a part of nursing home care but can predispose residents to associated infections. Because evidence-based prevention bundles were implemented, catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) and central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) were monitored in all U...

Background: Indwelling urinary catheters (IUC) are reported as the most common indwelling device in hospitals and residential/care home settings. Aim: The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence and appropriateness of IUCs in people living at home and receiving a community nursing service. Methods: An IUC self-report questionnaire was sent to 66 community nurses in one community care area. A second questionnaire was completed by the researcher on each patient (n = 80) identified by the community nurses...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Intestinal failure associated liver disease (IFALD) has been defined using numerous criteria; however the clinical relevance of these criteria has never been compared. We therefore aimed to evaluate the prevalence, incidence, evolution of IFALD diagnosed by different criteria and to assess any clinical features that may be associated with its occurrence. METHODS: A cross sectional (CS) and retrospective study were carried out on adults on home parenteral nutrition (HPN) for chronic intestinal failure (CIF) managed at a single center...

PURPOSE: The new lipoglycopeptide dalbavancin has only been approved for acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections. However, its alternative use as a catheter lock solution could facilitate the conservative management of catheter-related bloodstream infection. Our objective was to assess the stability and activity of dalbavancin alone and in combination with heparin against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus epidermidis (MRSE) biofilms...

W Hampton Gray, Winfield J Wells, Vaughn A Starnes, S Ram Kumar
BACKGROUND: Coarctation of the aorta can be associated with hypoplasia of the proximal transverse aortic arch. One approach to manage this condition is via left thoracotomy and extended end-to-end anastomosis with the expectation that the proximal arch will grow over time. Our preferred approach is to augment the aorta via midline sternotomy. We hypothesized that this approach is safe, durable and allows reliable growth of the aorta. METHODS: We identified the records of patients with biventricular anatomy who had coarctation of the aorta, hypoplasia of the proximal transverse arch, and no other cardiac lesion that would mandate cardiopulmonary bypass use and midline sternotomy...

Several techniques are now available to detect and quantify pulmonary edema, from the laboratory postmortem method (gravimetry) to non-invasive wearable sensors. In critically ill patients with adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), computed tomography scans are often performed to visualize lung lesions and quantify lung aeration, but their value seems somewhat limited to quantify pulmonary edema on a routine basis and of course to track changes with therapy. In this context, transpulmonary thermodilution is a convenient technique...

Frank L Ward, Rose Faratro, Rory F McQuillan
Patients with end-stage kidney disease who are considering home hemodialysis (HHD) face the challenge of learning to self-cannulate their arteriovenous access. Current practice discourages the use of tunneled central venous catheters, with recent indications that self-cannulating patients have superior outcomes. Patient-level barriers do not appear to preclude a successful HHD program and should not be viewed as insurmountable by healthcare staff or patients. The healthcare team must address patient fears while instructing the patient to perform self-cannulation safely...

This case study presents the inadvertent catheterization of a traumatic hemopneumothorax. A 22-year-old man sustained multiple stab wounds, including the left chest with a resultant hemopneumothorax. Upon arrival at a Level 1 trauma center, an ipsilateral subclavian central catheter was placed, blood was freely aspirated, and because of the patient's critical status, immediately utilized for resuscitation prior to line verification by radiography. A short time later, the catheter was felt to be malpositioned, most likely in the left intrathoracic space, and removed...

BACKGROUND: Despite being less costly than prolonged hospitalization, home parenteral nutrition (HPN) is associated with high rates of post-discharge complications, including frequent readmissions and central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs). Telemedicine has been associated with improved outcomes and reduced healthcare utilization in other high-risk populations, but no studies to date have supported effectiveness of telemedicine in pediatric HPN. METHODS: We prospectively collected data on pediatric patients managed at a single HPN program who participated in postdischarge telemedicine visits from March 1, 2014 to March 30, 2016...

Background: In intestinal failure (IF) patients receiving home parenteral support (HPS), catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSIs) frequently result in replacement of their tunneled central venous catheters (CVCs), which may lead to future loss of central venous access. Objective: This observational study investigated the consequences of a catheter-salvage strategy related to CRBSIs. Design: All CRBSIs from 2002 to 2016 in the Copenhagen IF and microbiological databases were retrospectively analyzed...
