USG guided IJV cannulation

Pietro Bertini, Massimo Frediani
PURPOSE: Ultrasound-guided (USG) central vein cannulation has become very popular among anesthesiologists and critical care physicians in the last decade and it has been advocated as the gold standard practice for internal jugular vein (IJV) catheterization. METHODS: We report a technique used at our second level hospital for cannulating either subclavian vein or innominate vein using a supraclavicular (SCV) approach under real time ultrasound guidance for elective positioning of long, medium or short-term central venous catheters (CVC)...

To assess the efficacy of three different methods for internal jugular vein (IJV) cannulation in pediatric patients, we conducted a review of patients undergoing cardiovascular surgery over an 11-year period, in which success rates for cannulation and time from induction of anesthesia to cannulation were evaluated. The success rate was better for real-time ultrasound guidance (USG: 90%) than for anatomic landmarks (AL: 76%) or audio-Doppler guidance (ADG: 74%) and the time required was greater for USG (35.0 +/- 13...

BACKGROUND: Portable ultrasound machines are highly valuable in ICUs, where a patient's condition might not permit shifting the patient to the USG department for imaging. Traditionally central lines are put blindly using anatomical landmarks, which often result in complications such as difficulty in access, misplaced lines, pneumothorax, bleeding from inadvertent arterial punctures, etc. Ultrasonography provides "real time" imaging, i.e., the needle can be visualized entering the vein...

OBJECTIVE: Ultrasound guidance (USG) for internal jugular cannulation is the best solution in difficult settings where paediatric patients are involved. This is an outcome study on efficacy and complications of the USG for the internal jugular vein (IJV) cannulation in neurosurgical infants as well as an ultrasound study of anatomical findings of the IJVs in infants. DESIGN AND SETTINGS: A prospective study conducted in two Academic Neurosurgical hospitals. PARTICIPANTS: In 191 babies (body weight <15 kg), anatomical findings were studied...
