CONCLUSIONS: Current evidence suggests that the cancer patients with TIVAP are less likely to develop VTE compared with external CVCs. This should be considered when choosing the indwelling intravenous device for chemotherapy. However, more attention should be paid when choosing upper-extremity veins as the insertion site.

ConclusionsThere is a significantly increased risk for TEE pre-cystectomy during chemotherapy administration in MIBC patients receiving NAC, compared to the risk in NAC-na ïve NAC-eligible MIBC patients. In 64% of the pre-RC TEEs in NAC patients, there was a clinical connection to placement of central venous access.

Peripherally inserted central venous catheter (PICC) is the main venous access for cancer patients when they receive chemotherapy and nutritional support, but PICC-related venous thrombosis has become one of the most common and serious complications. It is very important to further explore the relationship among these features, so that prevent and treat the PICC-related thrombosis. To investigate the clinical features and the related factors of PICC-related upper extremity asymptomatic venous thrombosis in cancer patients, and to provide theoretical basis for the prevention of venous thrombosis. A total of 127 tumor pati...

CONCLUSION: Implanting totally implantable venous access ports in the upper arm is feasible and safe for patients with early breast cancer, with a low rate of complications, providing good alternative to central venous ports. PMID: 31841061 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: The use TICVAP for the patients on new MDR-TB regimens with long term IV infusions demonstrates good safety profile and high level of patients and HCP acceptability.

Conclusion.Use of PICC for chemotherapy administration was associated with a low all‐AEs rate. The basilic vein was the safer site, and valved systems had fewer AEs than open systems. More research is needed to explore the interaction between AEs, sex, and age.Implications for Practice.These findings provide clinicians with evidence that peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) are safe for chemotherapy administration. They also suggest that clinicians should limit the use of open systems when long chemotherapy regimens are scheduled. Moreover, alternatives to PICCs should be considered when administering chemotherapy to young men.

AbstractCentral venous port devices are indicated for patients, who need long-term intravenous therapy. Oncologic patients may require intermittent administration of chemotherapy, parenteral nutrition, infusions, or blood transfusions. A venous port system is composed of a port chamber attached to a central catheter, which is implanted into the central venous system. The subcutaneous location of the catheter chamber improves the patients ’ quality of life and the infection rate is lower than in non-totally implantable central venous devices. However, proper implantation, use, and care of a port system are important t...

Authors: Suratkal V, Ahmed A Abstract Right atrial thrombi is a serious complication of central venous cannulation although incidence is less as compared to left atrial thrombi.1 Right atrial thrombi develops at anastomotic foci or on injured endothelium, implanted devices or foreign bodies including tumours, pacemakers and indwelling right atrial catheters. They have been associated with triple-lumen catheters for chemotherapy, intravenous fluids or parenteral nutrition, pulmonary artery catheters, hemodialysis and implantable venous access devices.2 Right atrial thrombi can have severe consequences leading to pul...

We report a case of deep vein thrombosis in the upper limb after trauma to the shoulder causing grade III Rockwood acromioclavicular dislocation.ResumenUn 5-10% de las trombosis venosas profundas ocurren en el miembro superior. Su causa más frecuente suele ser secundaria a cáncer, catéter venoso central, tratamiento con radio-quimioterapia u hormonal. Con menor frecuencia, los traumatismos en la región del hombro también pueden ser causantes de una trombosis venosa profunda. Su diagnóstico probablemente sea más complejo que en la extremidad inferior debido a su baja frecuenc...

Authors: Petzold T, Thienel M, Lüsebrink E, Massberg S Abstract A patient with a history of colon cancer was admitted to our emergency department due to progressive dyspnea, chest pain, and swelling of the upper limbs and face. A central venous port device had been implanted into the right subclavian vein for administration of systemic chemotherapy several months prior. Thoracic computed tomography scan revealed a 2.8 cm-long thrombus arising from the tip of the venous catheter, which completely occluded the superior vena cava in close proximity to the right atrium.
