Cervical epidural hematoma is a serious complication after neck spinal manipulation and is rare. Few cases of severe quadriplegia caused by neck manipulation have been reported [ 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 ]. Most of these cases suffered from various underlying diseases, such as coagulation dysfunction and cervical vascular malformations Damage to central veins, including injury, bleeding and hematoma (a swelling that consists of clotted blood), can occur during CVC placement. Studies shows that puncture of a vein occurs in 4.2-9.3% of catheter placements. ii, iii Injury to the vein occurs more often when the catheter is inserted into the femoral vein found in the leg, and.
Hematoma formation has also been reported in about 4.7% of all central line insertions. Most hematomas formed during central line insertions are benign but some can become sources of infection in patients and lead to abscess formation Objective: To determine the outcome and management of iatrogenic neck-vessel complications after central venous line placement (CVLP). Design: Retrospective study. Setting: Department of Cardiovascular Surgery and the Intensive Care Unit of a 1000-bed university hospital. Patients: Eleven patients with acute central venous line placement complications were identified between 1998 and 2002 Anagnou compiled data regarding six cases of hemiparesis after carotid puncture during internal jugular vein catheterization. The mean age of these patients was 68 years, and manual compression was applied to the neck in all to prevent hematoma formation; five of six cases were fatal. In all but one patient, there was evidence of arteriosclerosis Another complication of a central line is phlebitis (vein inflammation) with related pain. Although most common with a PICC, it can occur with any central line. Phlebitis causes erythema, pain, or swelling along the path of the vein in which the catheter is lodged. The condition is classified as chemical, mechanical, or bacterial

Complications of Central Line Removal-The 'CVC Removal Distress Syndrome' ABSTRACT & COMMENTARY. Synopsis: Proposed guidelines to ease maintenance and removal of central venous catheters (CVC) and prevent complications and possibly death. Source: Kim DG, et al. The CVC removal distress syndrome: An unappreciated complication of central venous catheter removal Cleanse a 15-20 cm area over the side of the mid- to lower neck with povidone-iodine solution; the right side is preferred due to more direct line to the atrium and avoids injuring the thoracic duct It turns out a very rare and virtually unknown side effect to the drug is aseptic meningitis. I was in the hospital for 5dys and released with a picc line to continue treatment for another 10dys. After 2 days with the picc I started having a lot of pain; it felt like it was shredding the artery. I was told it was just sore muscles
A retropharyngeal hematoma forms when blood collects in a specific deep space of the neck, the retropharyngeal space. In the past, because of the inability of a soft tissue lateral neck radiographs.. Abstract: The central venous catheter (CVC) is a catheter placed into a large vein in the neck [internal jugular vein (IJV)], chest (subclavian vein or axillary vein) or groin (femoral vein). There are several situations that require the insertion of a CVC mainly to administer medications or fluids, obtain blood tests (specifically the central venous oxygen saturation), and measure. Keep patient flat with minimal activity for at least 1 hour following subclavian or jugular line and 2 hours following femoral line removal. Do not allow patient to lift head independently (nurse can provide a pillow). Assess site for bleeding or hematoma q 5 minutes X3, q 15 minutes X 4 then q 1 h X 4 that can occur on or after CVC removal. These complications are listed in Table 1. When a complication occurs there is an over-all mortality rate of 57% (Kim et al, 1998). A significant factor in the high mortality rate with these complications is the failure of practitioners to appreciate fully these rare but life-threatening complications. Neck hematoma resulting in airway compromise has also been reported with other commonly performed medical procedures, including central line placement and regional nerve blockade. (1,2
A central line (also known as a central venous catheter) is a catheter (tube) that doctors often place in a large vein in the neck, chest, or groin to give medication or fluids or to collect blood for medical tests. You may be familiar with intravenous catheters (also known as IVs) that are used frequently to give medicine or fluids into a vein. Infection is one of the most frequent and serious complications associated with central-line catheters (Haller and Rush, 1992). Most catheter-related bloodstream infections are bacterial (predominantly staphylococci), but they may also be fungal, especially in severely immunosuppressed patients (Krzywda et al, 1999) Ensure the integrity of the central line dressing surrounding the insertion site. 11 Use caution when moving or repositioning patients to prevent pulling on the central line. A break in the closed system, combined with decreased CVP (due to movement to an upright position and deep inspiration), creates a high risk for air embolism. 1 .0% to 2.4% of patients, and the complication rate increases with larger catheters. Complications are more frequent when the puncture site is either too high or too low, precluding pressure against the femoral head Neck hematoma (asterisk) after right internal jugular line placement attempt. Note the endotracheal tube tip is in the right main bronchus
Thoracic trauma: neck line on same side or femoral line. Mediastinal Trauma: neck line on contralateral side or femoral. Abdominal: neck line, no femorals (Scalea et al: Percutaneous central venous access for resuscitation in trauma Academy of Emerg Med 1994 6:525-3 A central line entering the innominate artery has not been reported. Whatever management choices are made to treat these arterial complications, it is prudent to leave the offending catheter in place until the next step is taken. The diagnosis of an aortic injury and the estimation of its extent require careful assessment Central venous stenosis, fractured catheters, intracranial haemorhage, thromboembolism has also been reported as late complications [6,12,17]. Infection has been variously reported as a major late complication seen in haemodialysis patients using central catheters as vascular access [16,18,19]
Complications related to central venous catheters (CVCs) in the postoperative period can be fatal. We recently had a case of pneumomediastinitis. A 77 years old woman with left femoral neck fracture due to a fall was admitted to Rajaee Hospital. The next day after the operation the patient presented with tachypnea and respiratory distress Placement of a central venous catheter (CVC) is a common method of vascular access. Catheter malposition (defined as any CVC tip position outside the superior vena cava) and other complications such as arterial puncture, injury to great vessels and nerves, neck hematoma, arrhythmia, cardiac tamponade, pneumothorax or hemothorax may be associated with catheter insertion, some of them requiring. A 23-year-old woman with a history of type 1 diabetes mellitus, an eating disorder, gastroparesis, neurogenic bladder, and schizoaffective disorder was admitted to an outside hospital in diabetic ketoacidosis. A central line was placed emergently, and after placement, a chest x-ray showed a right pneumothorax and an abnormal course of the.
Mediastinal hematoma is a rare complication following insertion of a central venous catheter with only few cases reported in the English literature. We report a case of a 71-year-old female who was admitted for elective chemoport placement. USG guided right internal jugular access was attempted using the Seldinger technique. Resistance was met while threading the guidewire Many cases of cervical hematoma-induced acute airway obstruction following central venous catheter insertion have been documented. These obstructions are mainly caused by inadvertent arterial puncture-induced hematoma [1, 3], arterial pseudoaneurysm formation [4-6], and extravasation of intravenous fluid from the central catheter [7, 8].In this report, our patient suffered from acute. commonly where the central venous catheter capillaries within the tunnel, not at the exit site. → By determining the source of the bleeding, pressure can be applied in the most effective manner. • Inform the nephrologist. Patient may require further suturing to site and/or medications to promote coagulation. If inserted by surgeon, notif
Although the majority of asymptomatic CRT cases remain subclinical, symptomatic DVT occurs in 1%-5% of patients with a CVC (). 9-12 A prospective study of 444 cancer patients with a CVC reported symptomatic, ipsilateral DVT in 4% at a median of 30 days after insertion. 13 This corresponds to an incidence of 0.3 per 1000 catheter-days.Another prospective study in 2014 patients with a. X-ray after insertion of the central line did not show any significant complication associated to CVC line tip in the anterior part of the midiastinum as a sequence of wrong way insertion of CV line. Trauma to head, neck, or chest, due to mechanical ventilation procedures such as dental extractions
Spontaneous neck hematoma is a rare yet potentially fatal complication of primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). Here we aim to describe novel presentations of neck hematomas secondary to PHPT, discussing tools and signs that facilitate diagnosis. Case series data were extracted by retrospective chart reviews of our institution's electronic medical records, including all neck hematoma cases from. Surgical repair is preferred for catheters of 7F or larger. 5 There are multiple reports on percutaneous closure of an inadvertent subclavian artery puncture during central line placement. 11-14 To our knowledge, this is the first report of treatment of inadvertent carotid artery sheath insertion using a percutaneous closure device as a. I was trained that the tip of the central line must lie in the lower portion of the superior vena cava. If the line was in the right atrium, it would cause cardiac perforation. If the line was too high, then vasopressors would sclerose the vein. At that time we were very interested in mixed venous oxygen saturation and central venous pressure, further mandating placement in the superior vena cava A hematoma is a collection of blood. A bruise is a type of hematoma. A hematoma may form in a muscle or in the tissues just under the skin. A hematoma that forms under the skin will feel like a bump or hard mass. Hematomas can happen anywhere in your body, including in your brain. Your body may break down and absorb a mild hematoma on its own
After trauma, impairment of the right bundle is usually transient with recovery in hours, but complete heart block can lead to symptoms requiring invasive treatment. Similar complications are rare with insertion of central venous catheters, as they should not enter the heart Retropharyngeal hematoma (RPH) is rare.2The most serious sequela of RPH is respiratory obstruction leading to death.3-5SGB can also cause RPH, although it is extremely rare. There have been only four patients reported in the English-language literature who developed RPH after SGB.6-9The initial symptoms of RPH after SGB sometimes occur a long time after SGB, after the patients have left.
Data on outcomes after central line placement indicate that complications are not uncommon. Complication rates ranging from 3-20% have been reported and include hemothorax, pneumothorax, infection and air embolism. Studies show that when the central line is inserted in an aseptic fashion, the risk of infection is low The computed tomographic scan of the neck showed that the central line, which was inserted on the right side, crossed subcutaneously to the left and dissected the soft tissue planes, reaching the submaxillary gland at the level of the midcervical region.

Central line (central venous catheter) insertion Central line insertion should be real-time ultrasound guided. The internal jugular is usually preferred to subclavian approach where possible as it is less likely to lead to pneumothorax Indications for central line (central venous catheter) insertion Administration of medications that require central access e.g. amiodarone, inotropes, high. The terms 'long line' and 'central line' are often used interchangeably. We often may refer to percutaneous long lines (a very fine tube is threaded up a small vein in the arm or leg until it is in a large vein near the heart), or surgical central lines (a larger tube inserted directly into one of the larger veins in the baby's neck during a. CENTRAL LINE-ASSOCIATED BLOODSTREAM INFECTION (CLABSI) FACT SHEET Overview A central line, or central venous catheter, is a narrow tube that is placed in a large vein in the neck, chest, groin or arm to deliver fluids or medications. These long, flexible catheters empty in or near the heart and are importan
