Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Experimental : Cannulation with AccuVein AV400
Cirrhotic patients benefit from the support of a venous illumination device for each peripheral venous cannulation
Device: Cannulation with AccuVein AV400
Cannulation using AccuVein AV400 device
Other Name: AccuVein AV400

No Intervention: Control
Cirrhotic patients benefit from the standard technique of peripheral veinous catheter placement.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. First Attempt Success Rate of Cannulation [ Time Frame: baseline ]
    Firt attempt success of positional for each peripheral venous catheter and expressed as a percentage in cirrhotic patients during hospitalization.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. change of the score A-DIVA [ Time Frame: baseline and end of hospitalization (up to a month) ]
    Scores A-DIVA between beginning and end of hospitalization between the two groups

  2. Cost [ Time Frame: baseline ]
    Cost of consumables used in euro between the two groups

  3. Life expectancy of the catheter [ Time Frame: baseline ]
    Life expectancy of the catheter between the two groups

  4. Utilisation of a central venous catheter [ Time Frame: baseline ]
    Use of a central venous catheter (y/n)

  5. Pain's score [ Time Frame: baseline ]
    visual analogic scale

  6. Numbers of attempts [ Time Frame: baseline ]
    Number of attempts between two groups
