Department of Internal Medicine and Vascular Medicine, CHU de Nantes, Nantes, France.

Background: Upper extremity venous thrombosis (UEVT) represents about 10% of venous thrombo-embolic disease. This is mainly explained by the increasing use of central venous line, for oncologic or nutritional care. The factors associated with venous recanalization are not known. Read More

Prevalence of post-thrombotic syndrome in a cohort of upper extremity vein thrombosis.

J Vasc Surg Venous Lymphat Disord 2021 Apr 21. Epub 2021 Apr 21.

Department of Internal and Vascular Medicine, CHU Nantes, Nantes, France; UNAV, Nantes Vascular Access Unit, CHU Nantes, Nantes, France. Electronic address:

Objective: Post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) is one of the main complications that occurs after venous thrombosis. There are few data on the proportion of patients that will develop upper extremity PTS (UE-PTS) after upper extremity venous thrombosis (UEVT). The main objective of the study was to assess the prevalence of PTS in a UEVT cohort and to identify predictive factors of UE-PTS. Read More

Department of Clinical Nutrition, Peking Union Medical College Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College, Beijing, China.

Background: The Michigan Risk Score (MRS) was the only predicted score for peripherally inserted central venous catheters (PICC) associated upper extremity venous thrombosis (UEVT). Age-adjusted D-dimer increased the efficiency for UEVT. There were no external validations in an independent cohort. Read More

Patterns and risk factors of peripherally inserted central venous catheter-related symptomatic thrombosis events in patients with malignant tumors receiving chemotherapy.

J Vasc Surg Venous Lymphat Disord 2020 11 21;8(6):919-929. Epub 2020 Mar 21.

Department of Medical Oncology, Clinical Medical College, Yangzhou University, Yangzhou City, Jiangsu Province, China. Electronic address:

Objective: Peripherally inserted central venous catheter (PICC)-related thrombosis (PRT) is a serious complication that can lead to interruptions in chemotherapy and other supportive care, as well as increased hospital stay and costs. We conducted a retrospective study to evaluate the patterns of symptomatic PRT in patients with cancer undergoing chemotherapy and their risk factors.

Methods: A retrospective study of 938 PICC patients from our institution between November 2014 and July 2017 was performed. Read More

The anticoagulants rivaroxaban and low molecular weight heparin prevent PICC-related upper extremity venous thrombosis in cancer patients.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Nov;98(47):e17894

Vascular Surgery.

Peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) is often applied in chemotherapy patients and commonly causes upper extremity venous thrombosis (UEVT), which should be prevented.To assess the preventive effects of the anticoagulants rivaroxaban and low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) on UEVT in patients receiving chemotherapy through PICCs.A total of 423 chemotherapy patients with continuous PICC use between January 2014 and June 2015 at the Oncology Department of Dongying People's Hospital were divided into 3 groups: rivaroxaban (10 mg/day, orally), LMWH (Enoxaparine, 4000 anti-Xa IU/day, subcutaneous injection), and control (no anticoagulant).

Peripherally inserted central catheter-related vein thrombosis in breast cancer patients.

J Vasc Access 2016 Jan-Feb;17(1):67-71. Epub 2015 Sep 4.

Department of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition, Peking Union Medical College Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College, Beijing - China.

Purpose: To identify clinical incidence, risk factors and treatment of peripherally inserted central venous catheters (PICCs)-related upper extremity venous thrombosis (UEVT) in breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.

Methods: We performed a retrospective cohort study of breast cancer patients with PICC insertion undergoing chemotherapy. PICC-related UEVT was diagnosed by ultrasound. Read More

Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter-Related Vein Thrombosis in Patients With Lung Cancer.

Clin Appl Thromb Hemost 2017 Mar 9;23(2):181-186. Epub 2016 Jul 9.

1 Department of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition, Peking Union Medical College Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College, Beijing, China.

Background: Peripherally inserted central venous catheters (PICCs) are widely used in patients with cancer. Catheter usage is one of the risk factors for venous thromboembolism. We aimed to scrutinize the incidence and risk factors for PICC-related upper extremity venous thrombosis (UEVT) in patients with lung cancer receiving chemotherapy. Read More

Peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC)-related thrombosis in critically ill patients.

J Vasc Access 2014 Sep-Oct;15(5):329-37. Epub 2014 Apr 25.

1 Cardiothoracic Intensive Care Unit, Critical Care Area, Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Papworth Everard Cambridge - UK.

Background: Peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC) are being increasingly used in critical care setting. However, PICCs are associated with a number of complications, particularly upper extremity venous thrombosis (UEVT), leading to post-thrombotic syndrome, pulmonary embolism and increased risk of catheter-related infection.

Objective: To review the literature surrounding PICCs and highlight the epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis and management of PICC-related thrombosis in critically ill patients. Read More

Upper extremity venous thrombosis in patients with cancer with peripherally inserted central venous catheters: a retrospective analysis of risk factors.

J Oncol Pract 2013 Jan;9(1):e8-12

University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Department of Palliative Care, Dallas, TX 75390-8889, USA.

Purpose: Peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) are often used in place of mediport catheters because of cost and lack of operating room time and to prevent delays in therapy. One common complication associated with their use is upper extremity venous thrombosis (UEVT). The purpose of this study was to ascertain risk factors associated with an increased risk of PICC-associated UEVT in patients with cancer. Read More

Risk factors for upper extremity venous thrombosis associated with peripherally inserted central venous catheters.

J Vasc Access 2012 Apr-Jun;13(2):231-8

Department of Internal Medicine, St. Elizabeth Health Center, Youngstown, OH 44501, USA.

Purpose: To identify clinically important risk factors associated with upper extremity venous thrombosis following peripherally inserted central venous catheters (PICC).

Methods: A retrospective case control study of 400 consecutive patients with and without upper extremity venous thrombosis post-PICC insertion was performed. Patient data included demographics, body mass index (BMI), ethnicity, site of insertion, size and lumen of catheter, internal length, infusate, and co-morbidities, such as diabetes mellitus, congestive heart failure, and renal failure.

Incidence of upper limb venous thrombosis associated with peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC).

Br J Radiol 2005 Jul;78(931):596-600

Departments of Radiology and Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, University of Malaya, 50603 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The objective of this study was to prospectively determine the incidence of venous thrombosis (VT) in the upper limbs in patients with peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC). We prospectively investigated the incidence of VT in the upper limbs of 26 patients who had PICC inserted. The inclusion criteria were all patients who had a PICC inserted, whilst the exclusion criterion was the inability to perform a venogram (allergies, previous contrast medium reaction and inability of gaining venous access).
