To familiarize the audience with our institution’s technique utilizing ultrasound (US) and electrocardiogram (ECG) for anatomic localization and technical guidance for PICC placement in a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) procedure suite utilizing intravenous (IV) sedation without general anesthesia to eliminate patient and operator radiation exposure and decrease sedation specifically in a pediatric population.

Preservation of venous access in children is a major concern in pediatric interventional radiology. If a peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) breaks, there are two options: repair the line with a repair kit or exchange the line over a wire in the interventional suite. The purpose of this study is to explore the outcome (patency, success and infection) of PICC repairs in children and to compare those risks to that of PICC exchange. Read More

Neonates with prolonged hospitalization often require PICCs. The concern for PICC-related complications, including venous thrombosis, infection, catheter migration and breakage, often prompts Doppler ultrasound (US) evaluation. However, peri-catheter thrombus in a neonate can be challenging to evaluate, as the accessed peripheral veins in neonates are small, some less than 1mm in luminal diameter. Small-bore catheters may occupy the entirety of the vessel lumen, which can produce absence of peri-catheter flow, which is confounding for thrombus. This distinction has implications for hematologic management. Read More
