  • Infections are the most frequent complications associated with the use of central venous lines (CVLs) in children with haemophilia. Several retrospective studies that include data from a substantial number of patients have reported approximately 0·2–0·3 infections per 1000 catheter‐days (mainly Port‐A‐Cath). Some studies have shown a much higher frequency of infections, 1–2/1000 catheter‐days. The most plausible explanations, for the difference seen in frequency of infections with Port‐A‐Caths… CONTINUE READING
