Abstract
Peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) are widely used in cancer and critical patients for it’s convenience and performance compared to central venous catheters (CVCs), however, PICCs are still associated with some complications which increase disease burden and health care cost. No agreement about incidence and risk factors of PICC-related complications has reached from previous studies although much work has been done in this area. Lack of targeted prevention may lead to difficulties and stagnation in prevention of PICC-related complications. Our review reviewed current literatures on PICC-related complications and risk factors aiming to provide reference for further PICC research and prevention measures. In this review, we searched PICC relate literatures, and listed the incidence and risk factors of PICC-related complications. Different studies reported different data and risk factors, and we have detailed in this review. The total incidence rate of complications ranged from 3% to 61.67%, infection and venous thrombosis are the most two common complications. The risk factors varied from study to study, but it is basically divided into patient related-, operation related- and material related-. For the prevention measures, we considered standardized operation and nursing according to guidance played an important role. In this field, better research and conclusions are needed to guide the work of medical staff.
