  • Pipe-Cleaning Plugged Portacaths: How to Unclog an Implanted Port After Development of a Fibrin Sheath. [Journal Article]
    Vasc Endovascular Surg 2020; :1538574419900054Hagaman S, Matteo J, … Meyer TE
  • Industry has long fought the battle to design a vascular catheter that is less thrombogenic. Indwelling catheters provide long-term central venous access, but they develop fibrin sheaths as the vascular system recognizes them as foreign bodies. Peripheral catheters and central catheters can be changed over a guidewire when they form a fibrin sheath or otherwise malfunction. However, totally impla…
  • Venous access in cancer patients. [Journal Article]
    Rozhl Chir 2019; 98(11):427-433Zapletal O, Sirotek L, Coufal O
  • The most commonly used permanent venous access devices in cancer patients are the port, PICC port and PICC catheter (peripherally inserted central catheter). It is always necessary to consider the type of venous access needed for each individual cancer patient. Implantation should be performed using modern instruments to minimize the risk of early and late complications and thereby a delay in onc…
  • Calcification and abscess formation around the catheter tip of a central venous access port: a case report. [Journal Article]
    J Med Case Rep 2020; 14(1):10Takami T, Fukuda K, … Makimoto S
  • CONCLUSIONS: Catheter-related complications of central venous catheter placement include vascular occlusion, extravasation of the infusion, and infection. However, abnormal calcification in the blood vessels is extremely rare, and there has been only one case report of a neonate with central venous catheter-related vascular calcification in Japan. The etiology of intravascular calcification is considered to be related to the infusion content and the infusion rate of high caloric infusions and blood products. The incidence of complications associated with long-term central venous catheter placement is expected to increase with the increasing aging of the population and advances in chemotherapy. The report of the clinical course of this rare case adds to the body of knowledge in this area.
  • Superior Vena Cava Duplication: The Red Herring of Central Line Placement. [Case Reports]
    Case Rep Surg 2019; 2019:6401236Gunther K, Lam C, Siegel D
  • 5 million central venous access lines are placed every year in the United States, and it is a common surgical bedside procedure. We present a case of a central venous catheter placement with port for chemotherapy use, during which a duplication of a superior vena cava was discovered on CTA chest after fluoroscopy could not confirm placement of the guidewire. Due to its potential clinical implicat…
