Abstract:

We describe a prospective observational cohort (N = 187) to evaluate peripherally inserted central catheter line complications concurrently from the time of placement until removal. A significantly higher percentage of patients who experienced intraluminal thrombosis were receiving total parenteral nutrition (P ≤ .001) and had a dual lumen catheter (P = .01). Among patients with a confirmed or suspected infection, a significantly higher proportion received total parenteral nutrition (P = .01), had dual-lumen catheters (P = .04), and were neutropenic (P = .04).
