Abstract:

We conducted this prospective study to evaluate the incidence of, major risk factors for, and causative pathogens of catheter-related bloodstream infection (CRBSI) related to central venous catheters (CVCs) in patients undergoing gastrointestinal surgery. The overall CRBSI rate was 8.0% (38/477), equaling 5.6 CRBSIs per 1,000 catheter days. CVC duration, emergency surgery, and male sex were risk factors for CRBSI. The most common organisms were coagulase-negative staphylococci, followed Enterobacteriaceae and Candida spp.
