Visualization of the catheter during ultrasound-guided continuous nerve block performance may be difficult but is an essential skill for regional anesthesiologists. The objective of this in vitro study was to evaluate 2 newer catheters designed for enhanced echogenicity and compare them to a widely used catheter not purposely designed for ultrasound guidance. Outcomes were the numbers of first-place rankings among all 3 catheters and scores on individual echogenicity criteria as assessed by 2 blinded reviewers...

INTRODUCTION: Around 30% of peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) fail from vascular, infectious or mechanical complications. Patients with cancer are at highest risk, and this increases morbidity, mortality and costs. Effective PICC dressing and securement may prevent PICC failure; however, no large randomised controlled trial (RCT) has compared alternative approaches. We designed this RCT to assess the clinical and cost-effectiveness of dressing and securements to prevent PICC failure...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of infiltration and extravasation when using peripheral intravenous catheters is high in pediatric patients. Due to the lack of a gold standard test to confirm intravascular location of a peripherally placed intravenous catheter, we introduce a novel method, the color-flow injection test to assess the intravascular location of these catheters. For the color-flow injection test, 1 mL of normal saline was injected within 2 seconds in the distal intravenous catheter and changes in color-flow via ultrasonography were observed at the proximal draining veins...

OBJECTIVE: Pediatric shock represents a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States. Standardization of treatment such as volume resuscitation and vasoactive administration has resulted in improved patient outcomes. Vasoactives have been anecdotally associated with peripheral IV infiltration and extravasation. There is a paucity of evidence in pediatrics to determine the ideal route of vasoactive infusions and what, if any, risk factors and harm are associated with peripheral IV infiltration and extravasation...

Introduction In traditional locations, the standard Blalock-Taussig shunt presents numerous technical difficulties for percutaneous intervention. We changed our strategy to a central type shunt (Laks-type) with end-to-side pulmonary and side-to-side aortic anastomosis. The aim of this study was to determine whether this modified strategy would allow easier percutaneous manipulation in patients with small pulmonary arteries. Methods All children with a stretchable central vascular graft who required any form of percutaneous intervention were prospectively enrolled in the study...

Continuous technological advances in endoscopic-, robotic- and catheter-based cardiac interventions are paralleled by rapid evolution in cannulation strategies for circulatory support. The recent introduction of suture-based percutaneous vascular closure devices resulted in innovative strategies to deliver peripheral endovascular therapeutic devices through the iliac and femoral arteries. Percutaneous access allows rapid postoperative mobilization and potentially avoids the devastating neuro-lympho-vascular- and wound infection morbidities associated with conventional open surgical exposure...

A 20-month-old boy with Williams syndrome had undergone multiple surgical and catheter-based interventions for resistant peripheral pulmonary arterial stenoses with eventual bilateral stent placement and conventional balloon angioplasty. He persistently developed suprasystemic right ventricular (RV) pressure. Angioplasty with a drug-coated balloon (DCB) was performed for in-stent restenosis and to remodel his distal pulmonary vessels bilaterally. This resulted in immediate improvement in the in-stent stenosis and resultant decrease in RV pressure...

The transradial approach (TRA) has become an attractive alternative to the transfemoral approach (TFA) in percutaneous coronary intervention. To date, however, these two approaches have not been systematically compared in various percutaneous peripheral artery interventions (PPAIs). In the present study 258 patients with peripheral artery disease that underwent PPAI via the TRA (n=75) or the TFA (n=183) were analyzed. Clinical factors and outcomes in these two groups were compared. The puncture time was significantly longer (P<0...

PURPOSE: Central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) is an important cause of complications in paediatric intensive care units (PICUs). Peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) could be an alternative to central venous catheters (CVCs) and the effect of PICCs compared with CVCs on CLABSI prevention is unknown in PICUs. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate whether PICCs were associated with a protective effect for CLABSI when compared to CVCs in critically ill children. METHODS: We have carried out a retrospective multicentre study in four PICUs in São Paulo, Brazil...

BACKGROUND: Prostacyclins improve symptoms and survival in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). In response to risks associated with external delivery systems, an implantable intravenous infusion system was developed. A multicenter, prospective, single-arm, clinical trial (DelIVery for PAH) was conducted to evaluate this system for treprostinil in PAH. This analysis describes the findings related to the implant procedure. METHODS: Patients (n=64) with PAH (WHO Group 1) receiving stable intravenous treprostinil were enrolled...
