AIM: This study was conducted to evaluate the local complications in children who had a peripheral intravenous catheter. BACKGROUND: Currently, the insertion of peripheral intravenous catheters occurs in most children that are hospitalized. However, the development of some complications associated with the insertion of these catheters are unavoidable. A significant aspect of nursing care is to ensure the safety of the placement and management of peripheral intravenous catheters in children...

IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a fibroinflammatory disease of unknown etiology, which is characterized by a tendency to form tumefactive lesions, increased serum levels of IgG4, and massive infiltration of IgG4-positive plasma cells with storiform fibrosis and/or obliterative phlebitis. Patients with IgG4-RD have frequently multiorgan involvements such as the pancreas, biliary tree, salivary glands, periorbital tissues, kidneys, lungs, lymph nodes, and retroperitoneum. IgG4-RD mainly affects middle-aged to elderly men except for involvement in lachrymal and salivary glands, so-called Mikulicz's disease...

INTRODUCTION: Peripheral venous catheters (PVC) are medical devices most frequently used during hospital care. Although the frequency of specific PVC-related adverse events (PVCAEs) has been reported, the global risk related to the insertion of this device is poorly estimated. The aim of this study is to determine the incidence of PVCAEs during the indwell time, after catheter removal, and to identify practice-mirroring risk factors. METHODS: A prospective observational study was conducted as a part of a research project, called CATHEVAL, in one surgery ward and four medicine wards from three public general tertiary care hospitals in Northern France that were invited to participate between June-2013 and June-2014...

BACKGROUND: Varicose veins (VVs) have a substantial impact on patients' quality of life. OBJECTIVE: The study aimed to retrospectively compare the short-term clinical outcomes of 2 treatment methods for VVs, namely high ligation and stripping (HL/S) of the great saphenous vein combined with foam sclerotherapy (FS), and FS alone. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Totally, 180 patients with VVs were included and treated with FS alone or HL/S+FS. Assessments included the first injection efficacy, postoperative status, complications, operative time, and recovery time...

BACKGROUND: Antegrade cannulation of peripheral veins is the usual practice. Blood stasis between a catheter and the wall of the vein or at its tip in addition to catheter-induced phlebitis may initiate a thrombosis. The use of retrograde ventriculojugular shunts against the direction of the blood flow with resultant decrease in the incidence of venous thrombosis encouraged us to compare retrograde versus conventional antegrade peripheral venous cannulation. METHODS: Monocentric, nonblinded, prospective observational cohort of 40 intensive care unit patients receiving 2 peripheral venous catheters in upper limbs, 1 inserted in the direction of blood flow (antegrade cannula) and the other inserted in an opposite direction to blood flow (retrograde cannula)...

IgG4-related disease is a rare immune-mediated systemic disease with the capability of involving essentially any organ. Although the presenting clinical features vary substantially according to the speciality to which patients present first, perhaps the most common clinical presentation is that of single or multiple organ enlargement, arousing suspicion of cancer. The disease is frequently diagnosed unexpectedly in pathological specimens or on imaging studies. The diagnostic approach is complex and includes not only IgG4-related tests (serum levels, circulating plasmablasts, and specific immunohistochemical studies), but also clinical, laboratory, and imaging tests as well as the typical histopathological features (lymphocytic infiltration, storiform fibrosis, eosinophilic infiltration, and obliterative phlebitis)...

IgG4-related disease is an immune-mediated disease with manifestations in most organ systems among them the pituitary gland. To date, few cases of histologically confirmed cases of IgG-related hypophysitis have been reported. The aim of this study was to retrospectively determine the prevalence of IgG4-related hypophysitis among cases previously diagnosed as primary hypophysitis (lymphocytic hypophysitis, granulomatous hypophysitis, and hypophysitis not otherwise specified). Histological and immunohistochemical analysis revealed that 12 of 29 cases (41...

BACKGROUND: Peripheral intravenous cannula (PIVC) insertion is a universal intervention for inpatients and is associated with multiple complications. Effective, simple, reproducible interventions specific to PIVC complication prevention are few and often extrapolated from central venous catheter complication prevention strategies. The objective of this study is to improve compliance with documentation and monitoring PIVC guidelines in the medical ward of a secondary care center. METHODS: This study is a prospective run-in audit of adherence to PIVC documentation and monitoring guidelines between the dates of August 30-November 14, 2014, with data recollection from December 25, 2014-January 30, 2015, after intervention implementation...

Ig-G4 related disease (IgG4RD) is a heterogeneous disorder with multi-organ involvement recognised as a separate entity at the start of this century only. It is currently one of the hottest areas of clinical and translational research across specialties. Thyroid involvement in IgG4RD is rare, believed to occur in less than 4% of cases, may be isolated or may be associated with other organ involvement. As of today Riedel's thyroiditis, fibrosing variant of Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and few patients of Graves' orbitopathy represent the types of IgG4-related thyroid disease (IgG4RTD)...

BACKGROUND: Candidemia is an important cause of mortality in healthcare settings. Peripheral lines are a source of candidemia, yet few studies have reported on the clinico-epidemiological features of candidemia due to peripheral-line associated blood stream infection (PLABSI). METHODS: We conducted a single-centre retrospective cohort study of all patients with candidemia between 2002 and 2013. PLABSI was defined as the presence of at least one of the following: the presence of phlebitis or the resolution of clinical symptoms after peripheral-line withdrawal, with careful exclusion of an alternative explanation for bacteraemia...

Sclerosing mesenteritis (SM) is a rare inflammatory and fibrosing disease primarily involving the small-bowel mesentery. Recently, SM was reported to be closely related to IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD). This report describes a patient with SM associated with IgG4-RD. A 77-year-old woman with a history of surgery for ectopic pregnancy and wound dehiscence presented with intestinal obstruction. Abdominal enhanced computed tomography (CT) revealed an enhanced, radially shaped, oval mass, 3 cm in diameter, with an unclear rim in the mesentery of the distal ileum, which may have involved the distal ileum...

Immunoglobulin G4-associated (IgG4) autoimmune diseases are systemic multiorgan diseases with variable clinical presentation. Principally, all organs can be affected. All IgG4-associated diseases have the same morphological correlate in common, which includes lymphoplasmacellular inflammation with abundant IgG4-positive plasma cells, obliterative phlebitis and storiform fibrosis, each with a variable manifestation. The exact pathogenesis is not yet completely understood; however, as in most cases glucocorticoids induce a prompt clinical response to therapy, this new multisystemic disease must be taken into consideration not only by pathologists but also by radiologists...

Peripheral intravenous catheters (PIVC) are widely used in clinical nursing, but indwelling time remains a subject of debate. This study aimed to assess the risk factors for PIVC phlebitis in adults and provide a basis for indwelling time decisions. A total of 189 first-time PIVC patients in the emergency ward were assessed between May and October 2015. Data were retrieved for patient characteristics and PIVC assessment records. This study showed that over two-thirds (67.72%) of PIVCs were removed because of phlebitis, including oedema (37...

This case report series describes 3 cases of cisatracurium besylate associated phlebitis after an infusion period of 14-20 hours. No similar cases have been reported in the literature. Association of phlebitis with another neuromuscular blocking agent, atracurium, has been described in the literature. The acidity of atracurium is thought to be the main cause. It is recommended that atracurium is administered only via central venous catheters when indicated to infuse over prolonged periods of time due to the acidity...

Fosaprepitant dimeglumine (Emend IV®) is an IV antiemetic that may be beneficial to patients receiving highly emetogenic regimens. Aprepitant (Emend®) is an oral medication that is administered for three consecutive days, whereas fosaprepitant is a single-dose IV medication that is administered on the day of chemotherapy for 20-30 minutes (depending on the IV access type). Fosaprepitant may be useful, yet it can also present a risk for hypersensitivity reactions and phlebitis. Oncology nurses must be aware of the signs and symptoms of these potential adverse events to properly care for their patients...
