OBJECTIVES: Neonates with congenital heart disease may have an increased risk of cerebral sinovenous thrombosis, but incidence rates are lacking. This study describes the clinical and neuroimaging characteristics of cerebral sinovenous thrombosis in neonates undergoing cardiac surgery. METHODS: Forty neonates (78% male) requiring neonatal univentricular or biventricular cardiac repair using cardiopulmonary bypass were included. All underwent preoperative (median postnatal day 7) and postoperative (median postoperative day 7) magnetic resonance imaging of the brain, including venography, to detect cerebral sinovenous thrombosis...

BACKGROUND: The insertion of peripheral venous catheters (PVCs) is the invasive procedure most frequently performed in hospitals, and it could be associated with complications. The appropriateness of PVC placement, however, has not been carefully analyzed. OBJECTIVES: We conducted a study to assess the rate of PVC placement in our Emergency Department (ED), their use, their immediate or potential usefulness, and their complications. METHODS: In this descriptive prospective study, we recorded every PVC placed in our ED during 1 week and assessed its appropriateness in terms of its use and potential usefulness...

BACKGROUND: Despite improvement in technique and technology, using prophylactic ureteral catheters to avoid iatrogenic ureteral injury during colectomy remains controversial. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate outcomes and costs attributable to prophylactic ureteral catheters with colectomy. DESIGN: This was a retrospective study. SETTINGS: The study was conducted at a single tertiary care center. PATIENTS: The colectomy-targeted American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database from 2012 to 2014 was queried...

Catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSI) are major complications for patients with life-threatening conditions requiring chronic vascular catheterization. The wide range of etiologic microbes and the ongoing development of resistance to antimicrobials with specific mechanisms of action make this an appropriate target for applying a nonspecific antimicrobial therapeutic. Taurolidine hydrolyzes into two antimicrobial moieties, formaldehyde and methylene glycol, which react with microbial surfaces. Neutrolin® (taurolidine, heparin, calcium citrate) was recently introduced in Germany as an antimicrobial catheter lock solution...

BACKGROUND: The mortality of Candida Bloodstream Infection (CBSI) remains high. Antifungal susceptibility breakpoints were recently updated for Candida species, the impact remains unknown. In this study we evaluated the impact of inappropriate antifungal treatment according to recent breakpoints on 30-day mortality of CBSI. METHODS: From June 2008 to July 2014, data on CBSI episodes from two tertiary-care centers, treated > 72 h were analyzed. Antifungal therapy and 30-day mortality were registered...

Aims: Catheter ablation is indicated in patients with symptomatic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) resistant to antiarrhythmic drug therapy (ADT). We investigated whether continued use of previously ineffective ADT beyond the post-ablation blanking period reduces recurrence of atrial tachyarrhythmia within the 1st year after ablation. Methods and results: This was a multicentre, randomized controlled study in patients undergoing contact force-guided pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) for paroxysmal AF in whom previously ineffective ADT was continued during a blanking period of 3 months...

BACKGROUND: It has been suggested that cervical ripening with a balloon catheter for labour induction can be done in an outpatient setting in low-risk pregnancies. Introduction of such an approach needs to be accompanied with monitoring of potential complications. Therefore the existence and frequency of any associated adverse event during cervical ripening needs to be established. OBJECTIVE: To assess the complication rate during cervical ripening with balloon induction...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the impact of the implementation of insertion and maintenance bundles on the rates of catheter-related bloodstream infection in an intensive care unit. METHOD: This is a quasi-experimental, before-and-after study with a non-equivalent control group.

Pediatric patients with intestinal failure often require central venous catheters for extended periods of time for parenteral nutrition, blood sampling, and medication administration, increasing morbidity, mortality, and costs. In 2007, we reported a central line-associated bloodstream infection rate of 7.0 per 1,000 catheter line-days in our pediatric patients with intestinal failure. On the basis of this high rate of catheter-associated infections, we developed and implemented a central line care curriculum for patients/family caregivers and home health nurses...

REVIEW
Helmut Baumgartner
Numerous new data on the diagnosis and management of valvular heart disease published since 2012 made an update of the practice guidelines of the European Society of Cardiology and European Association of Cardiothoracic Surgery necessary. This was particularly the case for the use of catheter interventional treatment, indications for intervention in asymptomatic patients, medical treatment and organization of care. This review summarizes the most important changes in the recommendations.

BACKGROUND: The incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) is rising among inpatients in US hospitals, especially among kids with central venous catheters (CVCs) in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU). OBJECTIVES: To identify a sub-group of "VTE-rich" population among PICU children, and to assess the effect of VTE on morbidity and mortality. METHODS: Data was extracted from a multicenter Virtual PICU Database, or VPS, for children with a CVC and presence of a VTE...

BACKGROUND: Pediatric hospital-acquired venous thromboembolism (HA-VTE) rates have increased dramatically. To achieve generalizable knowledge in the derivation and validation of HA-VTE risk factors and risk prediction models and inform future risk-stratified prevention strategies, multi-institutional studies are needed. OBJECTIVES: This paper presents an investigator-initiated, multicenter pediatric case-cohort study designed to identify risk factors for HA-VTE to create a HA-VTE risk prediction model...

Purpose: To evaluate the impact of supplemental external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) prior to permanent prostate brachytherapy on long term urinary, bowel, and erectile function. Material and methods: Patient administered urinary, bowel, and erectile quality of life (QoL) instrument were obtained prior to treatment and following brachytherapy. The study population was comprised of the 457 patients who were alive as of June 2016, had been randomized to two markedly different supplemental EBRT dose regimens and a third arm without supplemental EBRT, and had completed the June 2016 QoL survey...
