Catheterization of the aorta via the umbilical artery provides a convenient route for monitoring arterial blood pressure, for obtaining blood specimens for measurement of blood gas tensions and chemistries, and for the infusion of fluids and pharmacologic preparations in sick newborn infants. Use of this technique may be accompanied by ...

Percutaneous catheterization of the radial artery appears to be a simple and safe alternative to catheterization of the umbilical artery for monitoring critically ill neonates. This avoids the serious and potentially fatal complications associated with use of the umbilical arterial catheter, and it is also applicable to monitoring of neonates ...

Five life threatening complications of percutaneous femoral vein catheterization for hemodialysis (Shaldon Technique) are presented. They occurred over a period of five years during which 700 uneventful catheterizations were carried out. In three instances femoroiliac vein thrombosis occurred, and on one occasion this was complicated by pulmonary embolism. In two ...

Indwelling radial artery catheterization was performed on 20 infants. In only one patient was it unsuccessful. Mean duration of indwelling catheterization was 44.1 hours. Advantages of this procedure include constant availability of arterial blood gas sampling and blood pressure monitoring. It is a relatively safe procedure offering a low incidence ...

Central venous catheterization through the basilic vein and by infraclavicular puncture of the subclavian vein was compared in a trial with random allocation to 125 candidate patients. The catheters were inserted via the two routes with roughly equal success rates. Subclavian catheters were maintained better for the period required than ...

In a prospective study of 210 intravenous catheters and needles 31 (15%) swabs yielded 34 microbial isolates. Twenty-eight were "non-pathogenic" skin commensals and six were "pathogenic" organisms. Commensals were isolated predominantly from catheters left in situ for only a short time (up to two days) and pathogenic organisms most frequently ...

A detailed description is given of a technique for the introduction of cardiac pacing catheters using a percutaneous supraclavicular route through the subclavian vein. In 91 attempts there was only one failure and the frequency of complications was low. Surface landmarks for the procedure were easy to define precisely, and ...

A technique for the management of cardiac catheterization in children is described which combines axillary plexus block with basal sedation. The technique offers a quiet still arm with pronounced vasodilatation, permitting the use of larger catheters than usual, making sampling easier, and giving undamped pressure records. These factors, together with ...

Antegrade catheterization is the preferred approach to angioplasty and selective fibrinolysis of branches of the femoral artery. A simple method of antegrade catheterization beginning with a retrograde puncture and using a new catheter is described. The method can reduce the number of punctures and manipulations needed for selective antegrade catheterization ...

A patient is described in whom a large congenital aneurysm or diverticulum of the right atrium caused repeated attacks of supraventricular arrhythmia and a strikingly reduced cardiac output. The aneurysm, which contained a large thrombus, was demonstrated by preoperative angiographic examinations. At the time of operation, regular rhythm returned at ...
