Inclusion criteria were consecutive patients 18 years of age or older who had at least one femoral catheter and met criteria for a PT intervention.
The femoral catheter insertion methodology was consistent and standardized among physicians via the Modified Seldinger approach.
The second femoral catheter
was removed for an MRI study 26 days later and was replaced the following day.
Comparison of subclavian catheter and femoral catheter groups Subclavian Femoral p catheter n = 37 catheter n = 88 Chronic disease (%) 16 (43.
All subclavian and jugular catheters and in cases where the intervention is considered to be risky femoral catheters were inserted by the responsible specialist of the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and other femoral catheters were inserted by a senior pediatrics research fellow educated in the Intensive Care Unit under guidance of a specialist using Seldinger technique.
To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is the first prospective randomised trial comparing ultrasound and neurostimulation endpoints for femoral catheter
As administration of local anaesthetic via the femoral catheter
was considered as a possible mechanism, the infusion was stopped and the catheter was removed.
2%), we found no appreciable difference in motor (chi-square test for trend) or sensory (Fisher's exact test) block at all the time points postoperatively with the 3-in-1 continuous femoral catheter
Subclavian, jugular or femoral catheters
may be used but are often associated with thrombosis or stenosis.
Other studies (Leblanc, Fedak, Mokris, & Paganini, 1996) confirmed the finding that shorter femoral catheters
produce higher recirculation rates than longer ones.
