Essentials Pediatric studies on peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC)-related thrombosis are scarce. This study analyzes incidence and risk factors for PICC-related venous thrombosis in children. PICC-related thrombosis is a common, and nearly always, asymptomatic complication. Echo-guided insertion and a catheter to vein ratio < 0.33 may notably decrease this complication. SUMMARY: Background Upper-extremity venous thrombosis is associated with the use of peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs)...

The European Medicines Agency strongly recommends administration of trabectedin through a central venous catheter (CVC) to minimize the risk of extravasation. However, CVCs place patients at risk of catheter-related complications and have a significant budgetary impact for oncology departments. The most frequently used CVCs are subcutaneously implanted PORT-chamber catheters (PORTs); peripherally inserted central venous catheters (PICCs) are relatively new. We reviewed data of trabectedin-treated patients to evaluate the relative cost-effectiveness of the use of PORTs and PICCs in six Italian centres...

PURPOSE: Few randomized studies have investigated the impact of valved and non-valved power-injectable peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) in terms of incidence of occlusion, infection, malfunction and venous thrombosis. METHODS: We have prospectively compared three types of third-generation polyurethane PICCs. One hundred and eighty adult patients candidate to chemotherapy were randomized into three groups: power-injectable PICCs with Solo-2 proximal valve (Bard); power-injectable PICCs with PASV (Pressure Activated Safety Valve) proximal valve (Navilyst); and non-valved power-injectable PICCs (Medcomp)...

BACKGROUND: Despite growing use, peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) are associated with risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). We designed a study to determine patient, provider and device factors associated with this outcome. METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study of adults who underwent PICC placement between 1 June 2009 to 30 June 2012. Symptomatic PICC-associated DVT was confirmed by ultrasound. Because PICCs are also recognized risk factors for lower-extremity DVT, lower-extremity DVT occurring while the PICC was in situ was included...
