Background:  In pediatric patients, several studies have been undertaken to establish central venous catheter (CVC) tip optimal depth. Assessments of catheter tip position using chest radiographs may be misleading, whereas transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) has been shown to accurately monitor catheter tip placement at the superior vena cava–right atrial (SVC–RA) junction. The aim of this study was to issue a guideline for ideal catheter insertion depth, from the right internal jugular vein… Expand
