Context Several methods exist for diagnosing intravascular devicerelated bloodstream infection. Contribution This meta-analysis summarized data from 51 studies for 8 diagnostic methods. Paired quantitative cultures drawn concomitantly from a peripheral vein and the suspected catheter appeared most accurate, but several methods, including quantitative and semi-quantitative catheter segment cultures, acridine orange leukocyte cytospin tests, and quantitative blood cultures drawn through the… Expand
