Abstract

The development of catheter-related septicemia is the most serious complicatio nof venous access. Risk factors may be related to the patients, to the catheter or to the location in which the procedure is performed. The most common organism isolated from catheter tip cultures are skin flora such as Staphylococcus epidermidis, Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus species. Infection of the totally implantable venous access device (TIVAD) can occur without local signs, but with unexplained fever or systemic signs of sepsis. Most cases of catheterrelated bacteremia can be successfully treated in situ with systemic antibiotics, more difficult to eradicate cases and early catheter removal should be considered seriously.
