PMID:  113584     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The use of silastic catheters for total parenteral nutrition has greatly expanded. Their decided advantages of flexibility and minimal thrombogenicity favor their use in the long-term nutritional support. This case report details the development of central vein thrombophlebitis associated with an indwelling central silastic catheter. This uncommon hazard of central venous catheterization is not eliminated by the use of silastic catheters.
