• drainage
  • An indwelling catheter for intrauterine treatment in mares after drainage for pyometra (or for other conditions requiring repeated intrauterine treatments). (merckvetmanual.com)
  • Purpose and Objective: The purpose of this study is to determine if the rate of spontaneous pleurodesis using the Pleurx® catheter could be increased by simply increasing the frequency of pleural drainage and, if so, whether catheter-related complications can be minimized and spare patients the need for long term management of the Pleurx® catheter. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Patients will then receive the Pleurx® catheter for standard treatment of their malignant pleural effusions, obtain a chest-xray, and receive educational instruction and training on catheter drainage and told whether to drain everyday using a 1-liter bottle or every other day using a 600-cc bottle. (clinicaltrials.gov)

  • spinal
  • The primary reason for wearing the catheter was urinary retention caused by disease conditions, including multiple sclerosis, cerebrovascular accident, enlarged prostate, and spinal cord injury. (bmj.com)
  • An indwelling catheter is more commonly placed in the setting of epidural analgesia or anaesthesia than with spinal analgesia or anaesthesia. (wikipedia.org)
  • There is less chances of hypotension after epidural anesthesia as compared to spinal anesthesia Epidural catheter can be continued post operatively to continue analgesia while spinal anesthesia is generally a single shot injection. (wikipedia.org)
  • commonly
  • Along with catheters, P. oryzihabitans are most commonly found at sites involved with respiratory equipment and devices for continuous ambulatory dialysis, and these bacteria can spread through contaminated fluids and unsterilized or defiled medical tools. (wikipedia.org)
  • In an emergency department, indwelling urinary catheters are most commonly used to assist people who cannot urinate. (wikipedia.org)
  • placement
  • At 2 weeks, 6 weeks, and 12 weeks post catheter placement, patients will return to clinic for follow-up at which time they will have an interval history and physical and chest xray and complete a questionnaires regarding their health and satisfaction. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • We present a case series describing a modified technique of combining medical Pleuroscopy (MP) and indwelling pleural catheter (IPC) placement for obtaining pleural biopsies and managing recurrent pleural effusions. (amegroups.com)
  • Embolization: Placement of a metallic coil or embolic substance (gel-foam, poly-vinyl alcohol) to block blood through to a blood vessel, either to stop bleeding or decrease blood flow to a target organ or tissue.Uterine artery embolization (UAE) or uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) Prostate artery embolization (PAE) Thrombolysis: Catheter-directed technique for dissolving blood clots, such as pulmonary embolism, deep venous thrombosis) with either pharmaceutical (TPA) or mechanical means.

  • Dialysis related interventions: Placement of tunneled hemodialysis catheters, peritoneal dialysis catheters, and revision/thrombolysis of poorly functioning surgically placed AV fistulas and grafts. (wikipedia.org)
  • Biliary intervention Placement of catheters in the biliary system to bypass biliary obstructions and decompress the biliary system. (wikipedia.org)
  • Placement of permanent indwelling biliary stents. (wikipedia.org)
  • infection
  • Risks/Safety Issues: Risks associated with draining the catheter include: pneumothorax, re-expansion pulmonary edema, hypotension, circulatory collapse, and infection. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • It's important to properly remove your catheter to help prevent infection and other complications. (sterlingcare.com)
  • From several studies involving cases of P. oryzihabitans, research reveals that there is a close relationship between infection, underlying disease, and the presence of catheters in patients. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the United States, catheter-associated urinary tract infection is the most common type of hospital-acquired infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • The industry is moving to silver-coated catheters in an attempt to reduce urinary tract infection (UTI), although there is limited evidence of efficacy. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other effects include increased financial burdens and overreporting of mandated catheter-associated urinary tract infection. (wikipedia.org)
