Extraction of abandoned, potentially dangerous lead with uncovered proximal ending: a case report and method description. (3/51)

In this study, we present the case of the extraction of a non-functioning, abandoned, chronically implanted nine year-old lead with proximal extended frayed ending, displaced spontaneously into the subclavian vein. The seemingly inaccessible lead was extracted from the body using the femoral approach. The lead was looped with a pig-tail catheter, standard guide-wire, and basket Dotter catheter, and the proximal ingrown ending was liberated. Finally, it was grasped with a basket catheter and its tip was liberated using oblique cut rotated internal sheath of a Femoral Working Station: using it as a Byrd dilator designed for subclavian approach. An additional difficulty was the risk of dislodging the correct endocardial lead in the pacemaker-dependent patient. The procedure indicates the necessity for the production of longer Byrd dilators designed for the femoral approach.  (+info)

Granted, Microsoft has been working on abstracting the file system and moving towards a simpler user experience for years. For example, Windows 95 featured a short-lived document-centric user interface paradigm whereby users could create new documents---a new compound documents, another short-lived experiment---without first finding and launching an application. Windows Vista introduced virtual folders, so we could think of broad terms like documents, music, and pictures instead of manually navigating to specific folder locations. And Windows Phone furthered both concepts by trying to hide the file system and applications and providing sweeping people-centric (really, user-centric) hubs of functionality.. Those are just a few examples, but you get the idea: While power users like us spend time tweaking File Explorer, Microsoft Word, or whatever other tools to work just the way we want, mainstream users just want to get in and out. They want to get work done as simply and efficiently as ...

Care of a central venous catheter depends on the type of catheter and whether a port is present. It is extremely important to follow the care instructions provided after a central venous catheter is in place to avoid infection or blockage. To prevent blockage, central venous catheters must be flushed routinely with a sterile solution, depending on the type of catheter. The catheter must be clamped securely and the tip covered tightly. Catheters that are connected to a port under the skin need less routine care, although most require flushing to prevent blockage.. A central venous catheter that has an exterior exit point must be kept dry during showers, and it must be protected from crimping or twisting caused by clothing or other articles rubbing against it. Occasionally, a central venous catheter may move out of its original location and require repositioning by the doctor. If it cannot be repositioned, the central venous catheter may have to be removed or reinserted. Any signs that the central ...

Background Catheter-related bloodstream infection remains an important health problem for hospitalized children. Although placement of a central venous catheter is a life-saving intervention for critically ill children, these same central catheters are a potential source of infection.. Objectives Few studies that directly address care of central venous catheters for children in intensive care units have been reported. This evaluation was designed to describe the extent of evidence-based practices for care of insertion sites of central venous catheters in the pediatric intensive care unit of an urban tertiary care center. Another goal was to determine the influence of 2 different regimens for dressing changes on rates of catheter-related bloodstream infections and costs.. Methods A convenience sample and an exploratory design were used to collect data in 2 phases, including 30 days to establish baseline information and 30 days each during which patients received dressing care for a central venous ...
Abstract:. INTRODUCTION: Permanent central venous catheter use is associated with significant complications that often require their timely removal. An uncommon complication is resistant removal of the catheter due to adherence of the catheter to the vessel wall. This occasionally mandates invasive interventions for removal. The aim of this study is to describe the occurrence of this stuck catheter phenomenon and its consequences.. METHODS: A retrospective review of all the removed tunneled hemodialysis catheters from July 2005 to December 2014 at a single academic-based hemodialysis center to determine the incidence of stuck catheters. Data were retrieved from a prospectively maintained computerized vascular access database and verified manually against patient charts.. RESULTS: In our retrospective review of tunneled hemodialysis catheters spanning close to a decade, we found that 19 (0.92%) of catheters were retained, requiring endovascular intervention or open sternotomy. Of these, three ...
Abstract:. BACKGROUND: Central venous catheters are inserted ubiquitously in critical care and have roles in drug administration, fluid management and renal replacement therapy. They are also associated with numerous complications. The true number of central venous catheters inserted per year and the proportion of them associated with complications are unknown in the UK.. METHODS: We performed a prospective audit at five hospitals, as a feasibility pilot for a larger, nationwide audit. Using a novel secure online data collection platform, developed earlier and adapted for this project, all central venous catheters inserted for patients admitted to the Intensive Care Units were documented at five pilot sites across the UK.. RESULTS: A total of 117 data collection forms were submitted. Users found the electronic data collection system easy to use. All data fields were ready for analysis immediately after data input. Out of the 117 central venous catheters, 17 were haemodialysis catheters and five ...

Central line complications are a major concern for hospitals and the healthcare sector, costing money and-most importantly-harm to patients. These complications are also highly preventable, as demonstrated by #simulation expert Dr. Yanick Beaulieu.. Central line (also central venous) complications include placement failure of catheters and arterial punctures, as well as central line infections (CLIs). The reduction of CLIs, which is caused when a central venous catheter placed in a patients vein gets infected, is a particularly concern. For example, the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC) now requires that all eligible hospitals submit data elements for CLIs in an effort to improve patient care and patient safety.. Dr. Beaulieu-a cardiologist at Hôpital Sacré-Coeur de Montréal and is an Assistant Professor at Université de Montréal-believes the best way to reduce central line complications is through ultrasound-guided simulation-based #education.

A central line placement is an invasive technical skill that is frequently performed in the hospital. Central lines may be placed in the neck, shoulder or groin area for lack of peripheral access, monitoring or introduction of multiple fluids.. Historically, resident physicians are trained by the See one, Do one, Teach one method. This means a resident typically watches one being performed by either an attending physician or a senior resident before doing one him or herself. Using this traditional method, trainees learn procedures vicariously through observation of their peers. If their peers have not been properly trained, mistakes are handed down from generation to generation of resident trainees. In addition, the use of ultrasound to place central lines could potentially minimize these risks.. If not done correctly, complications associated with central lines include pneumothorax (punctured lung), bleeding, hematoma, arterial puncture and infection. One study notes central venous catheter ...
Responding to feedback gains you converts who can win over others in a department adopting a new workflow. These converts are also an invaluable resource for explaining the benefits of change when new content processes are implemented across a company.. This is particularly true if you start with a pilot project that affects just one department (or a smaller segment of a big department). The pilot project enables a core group to develop a process and work out any kinks before expanding the changes across the organization. The participants in the pilot then act as evangelists who explain process change to other employees as the new workflow is rolled out to other groups.. These evangelists can gather feedback from the new groups and work with the process implementers to address department-specific challenges and any newly identified deficiencies in the overall process. Feedback from those who were not involved in the pilot can sometimes uncover issues the primary participants ...
Avoid Pressor Angst! Ordering that 3rd and 4th liter of fluid is an easy trap to fall into, but remember - 20-30cc/kg is usually no more than 2L of crystalloid. Excessive fluid administration often delays adjunctive intervention, can prolong the duration of hypotension, and may cause significant morbidity. We discuss Pressor angst as the mental hurdle that prevents a clinician from prescribing vasoactive therapy, often because it will define a patient as critically ill and increase the amount of resources they will require (central venous catheter placement, increased monitoring, and higher level of care at disposition). The patient likely needs these interventions, not an additional liter of crystalloid…. Dont delay vasoactives for central line placement. There is a growing body of evidence that peripheral vasoactive medication administration is safe3 It is appropriate to begin vasoactive medication peripherally early during resuscitation and then reassess the need for it after adequate ...

Central Venous Catheters (CVCs) are used to administer medications, intravenous fluids, and nutritional supplements. However, the insertion of a CVC creates a tiny opening in the skin, which raises the risk of infection. When these infections occur, they may spread to the bloodstream, which can lead to changes in blood pressure and fluid balance, organ dysfunction, and, in extreme cases, death. In fact, bacterial infections of the blood arising from central venous catheters are among the most common hospital-acquired infections in the intensive care unit.. ...
After surgery, you will have tubes outside and inside of your body.. ​​​​​​​Drains from your incision. You will have an incision where the surgeon placed your new kidney. This area of the skin is usually closed with stitches (sutures) or staples and covered with a dressing.. You may have a thin plastic tube called a drain from the incision. This drains extra fluid from the surgery area and prevents it from collecting around the new kidney.. The sutures or staples are removed a few weeks after the surgery and it will take up to 6 weeks for the incision to heal.. Central venous catheter. A central venous catheter (CVC) is a tube in your neck that ​goes to the large vein above your heart.

Central line insertion is an invasive procedure frequently performed in the intensive care unit (ICU). Patients in ICUs are at high risk of health care associated infections, including central line associated blood stream infections (CLAB), many of which are considered preventable. The Central Line Associated Bacteraemia in Intensive Care Units project (CLAB-ICU) is a NSW Statewide initiative that aims to improve patient outcomes, by reducing CLAB in ICUs. It advocates a standard sterile insertion practice. The project is overseen by the Intensive Care Co-ordination and MonitoringUnit (ICCMU) and the Clinical Excellence Commission (CEC), with the co-operation of the NSW Ministry of Healths Quality and Safety Branch. All level 5 and 6 ICUs are participating.. CLAB ICU is the first collaborative between the ICCMU and CEC providing an opportunity for clinicians to drive change at the coal face. ...
When your port is not being used, you can bathe or swim, as long as your doctor says you are ready for activity. Check with your provider if you plan to do any contact sports, such as soccer and football.. Nothing will stick out of your skin when your port is not being used. This decreases your chance of infection.. About once a month, you will need to have your port flushed to help prevent clots. To do this, your provider will use a special solution.. Ports can be used for a long time. When you no longer need your port, your provider will remove it. ...

Central venous catheterization has an essential role in the management of patients who are critically ill, and patients who have special operative interventions. In general, the bigger the vein cross sectional area and diameter the easier the catheterization will be. There are different maneuvers to increase internal jugular vein caliber. These include; passive legs elevation, hepatic or abdominal compression, Trendelenburg position, Valsalva maneuver, and positive end-expiratory pressure. The objective of the study is to evaluate the effect of passive legs elevation and hepatic compression on the diameter and the cross-sectional area of the right internal jugular vein. This prospective study included 80 adult patients ASA class I and II. Patients who had any contraindication to the passive legs elevation or hepatic compression, or those with disruption of the local neck anatomy; were excluded from the study. Patients were evaluated for their right internal jugular vein cross-sectional area and
Comparison of three types of central venous catheters in patients with malignant tumor receiving chemotherapy Shirong Fang,1 Jinhong Yang,2 Lei Song,3 Yan Jiang,1 Yuxiu Liu4 1Department of Anesthesiology, 2Department of Oncology, Weifang People’s Hospital, Weifang, 3Intensive Care Unit, The Affiliated Hospital of Qingdao University, Qingdao, 4Nursing College, Weifang Medical University, Weifang, People’s Republic of China Background: Central venous catheters (CVCs) have been an effective access for chemotherapy instead of peripherally intravenous catheters. There were limited studies on the choices and effects of different types of CVCs for chemotherapy. The aim of this study was to compare the complications, cost, and patients’ quality of life and satisfaction of three commonly used CVCs for chemotherapy, such as implanted venous port, peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs), and external non-tunneled central venous catheters (NTCs).Methods: A double-center prospective
OBJECTIVE--Major thromboses can occur in the venous system in association with central venous catheters. This usually necessitates removal of the catheter. METHODS--The effectiveness of low dose recombinant tissue type plasminogen activator (rt-PA) in combination with heparin was assessed in patients with central venous catheter associated thrombosis. RESULTS--In five patients, all suffering from cancer, a 5-7 day continuous infusion resulted in complete lysis of the thrombus without complications in three. In the other two patients moderately severe haemorrhage was observed with only partial lysis, of the thrombus. CONCLUSIONS--The infusion of heparin and rt-PA is potentially effective in thrombosis related to use of central venous catheters, but the risk of haemorrhage is not inconsiderable.. ...
The patient, who had a history of duodenocephalopancreasectomy, came to our attention when she developed bowel occlusion. She underwent emergency bowel resection due to bowel necrosis caused by adhesions. A central venous catheter (CVC) was then positioned in the right internal jugular vein. Since bleeding was recorded from the abdominal drainage, antithrombotic prophylaxis with enoxaparin was started on day 3. On postoperative day 4 the patients right arm became edematous. A Duplex ultrasound scan (DUS) showed mural thrombosis of the right internal jugular vein. A intravenous infusion of heparin sodium was started. A DUS performed 36 hours later showed recanalization of the vessel was almost complete. The edema in the arm gradually subsided and after 4 days had resolved. Enoxaparin was therefore substituted for heparin sodium. Successive DUS showed complete resolution of the thrombus, and the CVC was removed. Enoxaparin was replaced by warfarin continued for another 2 months.. ...

The use of US to reduce the number of complications related to vascular access for CVC placement has been evaluated in numerous previous studies in a variety of clinical settings. Recent Cochrane systematic reviews and meta-analyses summarize the current evidence for US guidance versus anatomic landmark techniques for CVC placement in the IJV [22], SV [23], and FV [23] with regard to complications of CVC placement. These meta-analyses included adult and pediatric patients treated in the intensive care unit or the operating room and compared conventional landmark techniques with techniques using static or real-time US or Doppler US. The primary outcome measure was the total rate of peri-interventional complications and adverse events.. For the IJV, 35 trials enrolling a total of 5108 patients were included in the meta-analysis [22]. The analysis demonstrated that the use of US for CVC placement in the IJV reduces the total rate of complications compared with conventional landmark techniques (US, ...

Introduction: Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) often requires a central venous catheter (CVC) for quick and safe vascular access. Currently, new technologies are available to protect the catheter insertion site, such as chlorhexidine-impregnated gel dressings (CIGD). Objectives: To evaluate local cutaneous effects associated with CIGD in patients undergoing HSCT. Methods: In this cross-sectional, prospective study, we evaluated 25 HSCT patients who had a CVC inserted. Patients were visited daily to monitor the CIGD changing procedures and evaluate abnormalities of the underlying skin after dressing removal. Findings: Local erythema was the most frequently detected abnormality, although usually transient and considered secondary to the mechanical trauma of dressing removal. The most severe lesions, consisting of areas of skin loss, erythematous plaques and/or vesicles were classified as skin irritation and presented in 11 (44%) of the 25 patients. An association test showed that skin

Guidelines and clinical practice for the prevention of complications associated with central venous catheters (CVC) around the world vary greatly. Most institutions recommend the use of heparin to prevent occlusion, however there is debate regarding the need for heparin and evidence to suggest 0.9% sodium chloride (normal saline) may be as effective. The use of heparin is not without risk, may be unnecessary and is also associated with increased cost. To assess the clinical effects (benefits and harms) of intermittent flushing of heparin versus normal saline to prevent occlusion in long term central venous catheters in infants and children. The Cochrane Vascular Trials Search Co-ordinator searched the Specialised Register (last searched April 2015) and the Cochrane Register of Studies (Issue 3, 2015). We also searched the reference lists of retrieved trials. Randomised controlled trials that compared the efficacy of normal saline with heparin to prevent occlusion of long term CVCs in infants and ...
We identified five new studies for this update (six prior studies were included in the original review), bringing the number of eligible studies to 11, with a total of 2392 participants. We noted differences in methods used by the included studies and variation in heparin concentrations (10 to 5000 IU/mL), time to follow-up (1 to 251.8 days), and the unit of analysis used (participant, catheter, line access). Combined results fromthese studies showed fewer occlusions with heparin than with NS (risk ratio (RR) 0.70, 95%confidence interval (CI) 0.51 to 0.95; P = 0.02; 1672 participants; 1025 catheters from 10 studies; I² = 14%) and provided very low-quality evidence. We carried out subgroup analysis by unit of analysis (testing for subgroup differences (P = 0.23; I² = 30.3%). When the unit of analysis was the participant, results show no clear differences in all occlusions between heparin and NS (RR 0.79, 95% CI 0.58 to 1.08; P = 0.15; 1672 participants; seven studies).

Most of us were taught to place central lines using the wire through needle Seldinger technique, but using the introduction catheter instead of the needle makes successful wire insertion more likely and facilitates venous confirmation. A 7 minute screencast.. on vimeo. operating room video of wire through catheter technique. recommend viewing at 2x speed.. Update 1 Lee 2015 compares wire through needle and wire through catheter and shows that wire through needle is (slightly) better. The operators were anesthesiologists very experienced in central line insertion, which may account for their results. In the less controlled ED environment, with providers who dont place a lot of lines (especially learners), the tendency of the needle to move before the wire can be transmitted may be more important. Also they did not confirm venous location in this study, which should be done whenever feasible and is greatly facilitated by the wire through catheter technique. Still, Im aware of no data comparing ...

You quickly have to kind of dissect is this a want or need; is it just that someone doesnt like the new workflow and therefore they put in a request to have it changed? Youve got to be careful you dont make too many of those, because it may not be the right change long-term.. Youll have a group of physicians say, I would like for the look or the feel or the workflow to be this way, but youve got to have a governing body. Somebody has to make decisions on behalf of the entire medical staff.. Optimization is really how do I wind up getting the return on investment and better patient experience - how do I tweak everything in every area as finely as you possible can tweak it?

Anaerobic choline metabolism by human gut microbiota to produce trimethylamine (TMA) has recently evolved as a potential therapeutic target because of its association with chronic kidney disease and increased cardiovascular risks. Limited examples of choline analogs have been reported as inhibitors of bacterial enzyme choline TMA-lyase (CutC), a key enzyme regulating choline anaerobic metabolism. We utilized a new workflow to discover CutC inhibitors based on focused screening of a diversified library of small molecules for intestinal metabolic stability followed by in vitro CutC inhibitory assay. This workflow identified a histidine-based scaffold, (compound 5), as a CutC inhibitor with an IC50 value of 1.9 ± 0.2 μM. Remarkably, compound 5 was able to reduce the production of TMA in whole cell assays using various bacterial strains as well as in complex gut microbiota environment. The improved efficiency of the new scaffold identified in this study in comparison to previously reported CutC ...

In this paper, detailed study is carried out to develop a new workflow from image acquisition to numerical simulation for the asphalt concrete microstructures. High resolution computed tomography scanned images are acquired and the image quality is improved using digital image processing techniques. Nonuniform illumination is corrected by applying an illumination profile to correct the background and flat-fields in the image. Distance map based watershed segmentation are used to segment the phases and separate the aggregates. Quantitative analysis of the micro-structure is used to determine the phase volumetric relationship and aggregates characteristics. The result of the quantitative analysis showed a very high level of reliability. Finite Element simulations were carried out with the developed micro-mechanical meshes to capture the strength and deformation mechanisms of the asphalt concrete micro-structure. From the micro-mechanical investigation the load transfer chains, higher strength ...

species isolated from central venous catheters (CVC). Our results showed that the 41 strong and moderate-biofilm-producing isolates presented a higher MBEC/MIC ratio for vancomycin than the 24 weak-biofilm-producing isolates, illustrating the importance of biofilm production ability and the difficulty in treating biofilm-related infections. The MBEC was significantly higher in moderate-biofilm-producing isolates than in weak-biofilm-producing isolates (p < 0.001) and in strong-biofilm-producing isolates than in weak-biofilm-producing isolates (p = 0.001). The correlation between the MIC and the MBEC was poor. Based on our results, we recommend that bacterial biofilms be suspected in all cases of CVC infection ...

Dr. Garpestad says, We interviewed everyone to see how they maintained the central line, and when we found one practice that was proven to work well, we were able with hospital leaderships encouragement to roll it out in other parts of the hospital.. The best example of how Tufts MC found and disseminated best practice involves the hospital-wide educational roll-out to all providers on how to keep the central lines ports or hubs sterilized.. Therese Hudson-Jinks, R.N., MSN, Tufts MCs Chief Nursing Officer and V.P. of patient care services, says, Whenever we administer fluid or medications through the central line, we scrub the hub, meaning we really clean that port in a certain, prescribed way for at least 15 seconds. We dont swipe it with alcohol - we scrub it. In an effort to keep unused ports clean and ready for use, Tufts MC rolled out alcohol swab-caps, which are protective caps that have alcohol soaked gauze inside of them and that are placed on unused ports on central venous ...
A central line has changed our world. First we had to enlist the help of 3 great nurse (very thankful for their help through a scary time). The stress from just each and every time Annabel had a fever of 100.5 and over. I referred to the central line as a time bomb. One minute you could relax and make plans and in the next instant you were being transferred to a hospital. Any infection in your line (blood infections) can be life threatening. Some of the antibiotic that she had to be on had terrible side effects. The hit your liver suffers with all these infections and just the TPN/Lipids is bad enough. Even though some saw Annabels smiles when they said Hi to her we saw a very tired Annabel. She just didnt recover like her old self. Each time she became weaker and we saw through her therapies she couldnt do what she had worked so hard to accomplish prior to her central line/TPN lifestyle. Yes it helped her survive for the last couple years but it brought her closer than ever to not surviving ...
