Prognostic factors for venous thrombosis in patients with peripherally inserted central catheters
This study will assess the precise incidence and risk of venous thrombosis in patients with PICC and provide references for establishing relevant assessment tools as well as retrieve, appraise and summarize the clinical evidence of risk assessment for PicC-related venousThromBosis.
Diagnostic value of high-frequency ultrasound in superficial thrombophlebitis of the lower extremities complicated with soft tissue infection
High-frequency ultrasound is of high diagnostic value in the evaluation of STP of the lower extremities complicated with STI, and plays an important role in detecting the disease.
Ipsilateral Intravenous Catheter Placement in Breast Cancer Surgery Patients
Very few complications in patients who had an IV placed for surgery following a previous breast cancer surgery and no complications in those patients with IV placement ipsilateral with axillary node dissection are found.

The Incidence of Thrombophlebitis Following the Use of Peripheral Intravenous Cannula in Post-Operative Patients A Prospective Observational Study
Investigation of the incidence of thrombophlebitis in post-operative patients having peripheral venous cannula found that the risk factors considered did not significantly influence the incidence and recommend daily examination of catheters for signs of thROMbophelbitis by a health care personnel.
Position of peripheral venous cannulae and the incidence of thrombophlebitis: an observational study.
The use of cubital fossa veins rather than forearm and hand veins should be encouraged to reduce the risk of thrombophlebitis in patients with peripheral intravenous cannulae.
Peripheral intravenous catheter-related phlebitis and related risk factors.
Investigation of the incidence of phlebitis in patients admitted to medical and surgical wards of hospitals in Semnan, Iran from April 2003 to February 2004 found more attention is needed in patients with diabetes mellitus and infectious diseases.

Investigating the predisposing factors in the development of phlebitis in peripheral intravenous (IV) catheterization sites in patients treated with a variety of IV infusion solutions and drugs found that infusion through an infusion pump and insertion of catheters in the veins around the elbow increased the risk of phrebitis.
Occurrence of Phlebitis: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
The empirical results of this meta-analysis can serve as a reference for hospital management for selecting the PVC gauge, insertion site, and catheterization duration for patients receiving intravenous injections.
Incidence of phlebitis in patients with peripheral intravenous catheters: The influence of some risk factors
The results show the accurate selection of the catheterisation site, which relies entirely on the nursing intervention, is an important factor for phlebitis, and these findings show nurses' practices can have an important impact on the prevention of phlebits.
Incidence and predisposing factors of phlebitis in a surgery department
This paper reports on a study to determine the incidence of phlebitis related to peripheral cannulae, and its predisposing factors in a general surgery department, which used descriptive, inferential, and correlational analysis.
Incidence, severity and risk factors of peripheral intravenous cannula-induced complications: An observational prospective study.
The incidence of infiltration, occlusion and dislodgment is almost congruent with the average incidence of previous studies, however, the incidence and degree of severity associated with the occurrence of phlebitis were significantly higher.
Treatment for superficial infusion thrombophlebitis of the upper extremity
The evidence about the treatment of acute infusion superficial thrombophlebitis is limited and of low quality, and data appear too preliminary to assess the effectiveness and safety of topical treatments, systemic anticoagulation or oral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
