BACKGROUND & AIMS Parenteral nutrition is known as a high-risk factor for central venous catheter-related bloodstream infection (CVC-RBSI) in cancer patients. Owing to ethical and technical problems, the studies in the literature have nonrandomized designs and are therefore often confounded by biases. We performed a propensity score analysis to estimate the effect of parenteral nutrition on CVC-RBSI in digestive cancer patients who underwent chemotherapy. METHODS Data were collected… CONTINUE READING
