  • and the mortality-related outcomes.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
PICC Line Placement Procedure: Piccline

Detailed Description:

All eligible patients fulfilling the inclusion criteria, after PICC Line placement, will receive oral and written patient information describing the study deployment and follow-up. Patients will be followed up until PICC Line removal if it occurs during the first 3 months after placement or until death if it occurs during the first 3 months, or during 3 months in the absence of complications.

  • Infectious complications are described in accordance with IDSA 2009 guidelines and include bloodstream infection, endocarditis, local infection and septic thrombophlebitis.
  • Thrombotic complications are defined as symptomatic, deep, or superficial venous thrombosis, confirmed by Ultrasound and Echo-Doppler or asymptomatic venous thrombosis diagnosed fortuitously.
  • Mechanical complications are defined as impairments related to PICC Line device: occlusion, rupture, accidental removal.
  • Hemorrhagic complications are defined as hematoma or bleedings of puncture site.

In the event of PICC Line-related complications, patient will be followed up for an additional 3 months, from the date of complication diagnosis, i.e. maximum follow-up duration of 6 months.

Each week during the first month, then once monthly during the follow-up (i.e. W1, W2, W3, W4, M2, M3, +/- M4, M5, M6), all patients data related to the PICC Line retention or removal, use and all its related complications will be collected.
