BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Central venous lines (CVLs) are the major exogenous risk factor for deep venous thrombosis (DVT) in children. The study objective was to assess whether endogenous prothrombotic conditions contribute to the risk of CVL-related DVT in children. METHODS This was a cohort study of consecutive children with heart disease requiring CVLs for perioperative care. CVLs were inserted percutaneously in the upper venous system and patients received prophylaxis with continuous… CONTINUE READING
