BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Previous studies in adults have demonstrated a clinically useful correlation between central venous pressure (CVP) and peripheral venous pressure (PVP). The current study prospectively compared CVP measurements from a central versus a peripheral catheter in kidney recipients during renal transplantation. METHODS: With ethics committee approval and informed consent, 30 consecutive kidney recipients were included in the study. We excluded patients who had significant valvular disease or clinically apparent left ventricular failure. For each of 30 patients, CVP and PVP were measured on five different occasions. The pressure tubing of the transducer system was connected to the distal lumen of the central or to the peripheral venous catheter for measurements following induction of anesthesia, after induction, 1 hour after induction, reperfusion of the kidney, and the end of the operation, yielding 150 hemodynamic data points. Each hemodynamic measurement included heart rate, mean arterial pressure, mean CVP, and mean PVP determined at end-expiration. RESULTS: The mean PVP was 13.5 +/- 1.8 mm Hg and the mean CVP was 11.0 +/- 1.5 mm Hg during surgery. The mean difference was 2.5 +/- 0.5 (P < .01). Repeated-measures analysis of variance indicated a highly significant relationship between PVP and CVP (P < .01) with a Pearson correlation coefficient of 0.97. CONCLUSION: Under the conditions of this study, PVP showed a consistently high agreement with CVP in the perioperative period among patients without significant cardiac dysfunction.
