摘要

A retrospective study of patients' records on reviewing the purpose of venous catheter insertion (chemotherapy, blood transfusion, antibiotics or parenteral nutrition); total period of insertion; reason for catheter removal. 120 admitted patients who received fluoroscopic guide PICC (4-French single lumen silicone rubber catheter) insertions into distal SVC via antecubital region of forearm. We retrospectively review human factors including the patients' laboratory data of pre- and post-insertion, total insertion period and reasons for withdrawal. The important human factors that affect the clinical outcome of PICC were also evaluated. The results indicated that the most common complications were wound oozing, phlebitis, occlusion, infection and leaking. Persistent wound oozing for over 3-day-period is the higher incidence of complication. It also demonstrated a surprisingly high ratio (>77%) in those patients with thrombocytopenia and leukemia. In this group, persistent low platelet counts could be noted, the ratio of failure (remove PICC within 3 days) is 10% and there is 40% decrease insertion period (
