Principles of non-tunneled central venous access.

Tech Vasc Interv Radiol. 2011 Dec;14(4):186-91

Authors: Chung HY, Beheshti MV

Non-tunneled central venous access has become an important tool in the management of the sick patient, particularly in the intensive care unit. Image guidance allows more precise placement of lines with overall lower complication rates compared with guidance by physical landmarks. The use of image guidance has brought a procedure traditionally performed by surgeons into the realm of the interventional radiologist. Techniques for placement of non-tunneled central venous catheters, hemodialysis catheters, and peripherally inserted central catheter lines will be discussed.
