Long-term Central Venous Access Management in Pediatric Intestinal Failure
Children with intestinal failure require long-term central venous access to provide them with fluids and/or nutrition. Complications of this access contribute to significant morbidity and mortality with loss of access becoming an increasingly common indication for intestinal transplant referral. Advances have occurred in prevention of complications and management of central venous access for children with intestinal failure, but practices vary widely among centers.
Long-term Central Venous Access Management in Pediatric Intestinal Failure will examine the current evidence and recent recommendations for general principles to optimize central venous access management of children with intestinal failure.
