Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter insertion in conjoined twins

0

Patients were referred for peripherally inserted central catheter insertion before separation surgery. Simultaneous procedures by two operators were performed to minimize radiation exposure to the patients” Aldulaigan et al (2017).

Abstract:

The present case describes 7-month-old conjoined thoraco-omphalopagus twins sharing the pericardium and liver who had congenital heart defects. Computed tomographic angiography during simultaneous intravenous contrast agent injection showed abnormal orientation of the cardiac chambers and preductal coarctation in one twin (Fig 1). Patients were referred for peripherally inserted central catheter insertion before separation surgery. Simultaneous procedures by two operators were performed to minimize radiation exposure to the patients.
