Traditional Long-Term Central Venous Catheters Versus Transhepatic Venous Catheters in Infants and Young Children

Conclusions: Without compromising future central venous access sites, transhepatic venous lines had superior duration of service without increased thrombosis, thrombolytic use, or insertion site complications relative to central venous lines. Transhepatic venous catheters had a higher infection rate, and further investigation into the etiology is warranted.
