Ultrasound guided central venous cannulation is rapidly becoming the standard technique for achieving a central line in neonates, infants and children. Older techniques such as surgical cutdown and 'blind' percutaneous venipuncture have many disadvantages: they are time consuming, vein consuming and/or associated with dangerous immediate or late complications. On the other hand, ultrasound has only advantages, giving the operator the possibility of (a) choosing the most appropriate and safest…

Central Venous Catheters in Neonates: Old Territory, New Frontiers
TLDR
The paper presented by Ozkiraz and coworkers in the present issue of this journal raises two interesting questions that are a matter of debate in the field of central venous access in neonates: the indications and contraindications of direct central venus access vs. peripherally inserted central access and the potential advantages of USG direct cannulation of central veins.
A Systematic Ultrasound Evaluation of the Diameter of Deep Veins in the Newborn: Results and Implications for Clinical Practice
TLDR
Preprocedural ultrasound scan of veins is feasible and easy, also in newborns, and it should be recommended for optimizing central venous catheterization in the neonatal intensive care unit.
Ultrasound-Guided Central Venous Access With Different Anesthesia Methods in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
TLDR
No significant differences in complications or procedural success rates were observed between newborns undergoing general anesthesia or sedation and US-guided IJV catheterization can be safely performed with sedation alone.
Percutaneous Ultrasound-guided Central Venous Catheters: The Lateral In-plane Technique for Internal Jugular Vein Access
TLDR
The lateral short axis in-plane technique has virtually no limitations, ensuring most benefits in internal jugular vein cannulation and should be considered the first-line technique for IJV cannulation.
Ultrasound-guided central venous catheter placement through the axillary vein in cardiac critical care patients: safety and feasibility of a novel technique in a prospective observational study.
TLDR
Placement of a central line catheter in the axillary vein using a novel ultrasound- guided bracket-assisted technique may be a feasible, safe and rapid alternative to the conventional jugular and subclavian approaches.

  • 2018
TLDR
Implementation of a skills training program for ultrasound-guided central venous catheterization in a cadaver tissue model was feasible and cost- and time-effective.
Araştırma Use of ultrasound for central venous catheterization in pediatric intensive care unit ; a single center experience
TLDR
The research revealed low rates of complications and manifested that ultrasound-guided CVC procedure has been safe and that the use of ultrasound for all appropriate invasive interventions should be more common in children.
Short peripheral intravenous cannula and straight-tip guide wire in ultrasound-guided neonatal central venous catheterization.
TLDR
The short peripheral cannula combined with a straight- Tip guide-wire for USG newborn IJV catheterization was superior to the needle Combined with a J-tip guide- wires in terms of successful guide- wire insertion on the first attempt and overall number of insertion attempts.

Ultrasound-guided subclavian vein cannulation in infants and children: a novel approach.
TLDR
This US-guided approach of the SCV offers a new possibility for central venous catheterization in children and seems promising for children less than 10 kg and probably also for older children.

TLDR
Routine antithrombotic prophylaxis is not recommended for children with long-term central venous catheters because of the high risk of perforation and tamponade when tip was located in the cardiac cavities.
Ultrasound-guided vascular access in adults and children: beyond the internal jugular vein puncture.

TLDR
A large variety of ultrasound-guided vascular puncture techniques used in adults and children far beyond the well described puncture of the internal jugular vein are described.
Ultrasound-Guided Central Venous Cannulation in Infants Weighing Less than 5 Kilograms
TLDR
Ultrasound-guided central vein cannulation can be performed by well-trained physicians in infants weighing less than 5 kg without relevant risks, and there was a negative correlation between the patient's weight and the time for cannulation.
Ultrasound-guided internal jugular venous cannulation in infants: a prospective comparison with the traditional palpation method.
TLDR
Ulasonographic localization of the internal jugular vein was superior to the landmarks technique in terms of overall success, speed, and decreased incidence of carotid artery puncture.
Use of ultrasound to evaluate internal jugular vein anatomy and to facilitate central venous cannulation in paediatric patients.
TLDR
Determining the course of the internal jugular vein with the scanner and then marking it on the overlying skin reduced both the time and number of needle insertions required to aspirate jugular venous blood and increased the chance of a complication-free cannulation.
Ultrasound Guidance for Central Vascular Access in the Pediatric Emergency Department
TLDR
With appropriate education in its use, US-guided cannulation of central veins in children is likely to be associated with less complications and greater success.
Comparison of three techniques for internal jugular vein cannulation in infants
TLDR
In infants, a method based on visual ultrasound identification of the internal jugular vein is more precise and efficient than methods based on auditory (SM) and tactile perception (LM).
A Randomized Trial of Ultrasound Image–based Skin Surface Marking versus Real-time Ultrasound-guided Internal Jugular Vein Catheterization in Infants
TLDR
The real-time ultrasound guidance method could enhance procedural efficacy and safety of internal jugular catheterization in neonates and infants.
Safety and efficacy of ultrasound assistance during internal jugular vein cannulation in neurosurgical infants
TLDR
Ultrasound guidance for internal jugular cannulation is the best solution in difficult settings where paediatric patients are involved because it can enhance IJV cannulation success, safety, and allows one to measure relationships and diameter of the IJV and optimise the central line positioning.
