  • Perforation of the vena cava or atrium is a serious complication of monitoring with a central venous catheter. We designed an in vitro model with a pulsating simulated membrane to evaluate a number of variables that could affect relative perforating potential of different types of central venous catheters. To determine the perforating potential of central venous catheters, we studied the effects of (1) the angle of incidence (n=6) between catheter and simulated membrane; (2) catheter material… CONTINUE READING
