Incidence and Risk Factors of Central Line Catheter Related Thrombosis

Central venous catheters are frequently used for monitoring haemodynamic status and rapidly delivering fluid therapy during the peri- and postoperative periods. Indwelling central venous catheters are typically used 7-14 days postoperatively for additional monitoring and treatment, but patients may develop asymptomatic catheter-related thrombosis, leading to life-threatening pulmonary embolism and death. ...

Phase N/A

Angel Catheter Post Market Registry

The Registry population will include all consecutive patients in whom the Angel Catheter is placed at participating sites. Information about the use of the catheter will be collected from placement through three days after device removal, or through death or discharge, whichever occurs first. Date of discharge/transfer from the Critical ...

Phase N/A

Fixing the Short Stay Central Venous Catheter: Comparison of Two Techniques

Context: The central venous catheter is used in intensive care units for several indications, including the administration of drugs with sclerosis potential, infusion solutions and hemodynamic monitoring. It can be accessed by per cutaneous puncture using the Seldinger technique, which is an extremely common procedure in intensive care units. The ...

An Educational Program to Prevent Adverse Events in Neonates : a Randomised Trial.

Adverse events are frequent in Neonatal Intensive Care Units' (NICU) patients and account for a high morbidity and mortality. Possible severe adverse events are central line associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI), ventilator and catheter associated adverse events and medication errors. Severity of the patient's outcome after an adverse event can be ...

Phase N/A

Comparison Between Sutureless Devices for PICC and a New System KT FIX PLUS

PICC (Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter) are commun used. Just one paper report morbidity with suture as fixation system for PICC (dislodgement, infection) In the guidelines it's recommended to use sutureless device. The devices actually used are unsatisfactory because of the high risk of migration, accidental removal. A new device, called ...

Phase N/A

Arrow Chloragard Peripherally-Inserted Central Catheters (PICC) Study

A prospective study evaluating the timing, incidence and relationship of commonly occurring complications related to the use of peripherally-inserted central catheters. All subjects will receive PICC access using the Arrow PICC with Chloragard Technology.

Phase N/A

Bladder Morphology Using 2 Different Catheter Designs

The Foley catheter has been the mainstay of bladder drainage for many decades. There has been little design change despite risks associated with Foley catheter use including cather associated Urinary Tract Infections(UTIs). However, recent incentives and penalties related to iatrogenic bladder infections have encouraged healthcare providers to search for ways ...

Phase N/A

BIP Foley in Prevention of CAUTI at Rehab Station

This is a prospective, cross-over, randomized, controlled, partly blinded study evaluating safety and performance of noble metal alloy urinary Catheters (BIP Foley, Bactiguard AB) of both latex and silicone. The included patients are permanently catheterized spinal cord injured patients at the Spinalis clinic at Rehab station in Stockholm, Sweden. Primary ...


Immediate Complications According to Ultrasound-guided Central Venous Catheters Insertion Site: a Non-inferiority Randomized Clinical Trial

Ultrasound (US)-guided central venous catheterization is now considered standard of care according to recent clinical evidence, at least considering jugular vein approach. Recent trials suggested that even US-guided subclavian approach could be more effective that landmark technique. However, studies comparing both sites employing US are still lacking. We, therefore, designed ...

Phase N/A

PERiX: Comparison of Efficacy Between Placement of Epidural Catheters X-ray Guided and LOS Technique

About 30% of epidural catheters are reported to have hypo or hyper functioning behaviour. This has and impact on postoperative pain control and can affect also surgical and global outcome since it is known that a malfunctional catheter carries an increased complication's rate. Our hypothesis is that rx-guided positioning can ...
