Abstract:

We thank Drs. Kang, Li and Chen for their thoughtful reply to our recently published manuscript “Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter-Related Deep Vein Thrombosis: Contemporary Patterns and Predictors” [1]. Drs. Kang, Li and Chen note that our findings related to the association between PICC gauge, cancer and deep vein thrombosis (DVT) are in accord with the prior literature [2]. They, however, raise several interesting questions related to these and other findings in our paper. We address their concerns individually below.
