We analyzed the effect of gender, site of catheter insertion and etiology of end stage renal disease on exit site
, tunnel and blood stream infections.
The swab from exit site
was repeated every time patient presented for HD and results were recorded.
The late complications included peritonitis occurring in all (100%) children followed by exit site
infection in 9 (20%) participants, catheter blockade in 5 (11%) while tunnel infection developed in 2 (4.4%) subjects (Table 2).
An incision was made at the antimesenteric side of the jejunum loop at the planned exit site
of the guide thread.
In our patient, the pseudoaneurysm may have been related to direct bacterial seeding from the previous LVAD exit site
, given the same Pseudomonas was isolated.
The catheter exit site
must remain clean and dry, covered by a nonocclusive dressing until healing has occurred (Burkart, 2015).
At least one episode of exit site
infection occurred in 22 patients on HD both exclusively and sequentially (25%).
All isolates were obtained from urine samples, except for YD472, which was cultured from the peritoneal catheter exit site
. Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) with XbaI as the restriction enzyme showed that all isolates had identical banding patterns.
In May 2013, the patient developed purulent drainage from the catheter exit site
without other signs of systemic infection.
Children can participate in sports as well and they have liberty of movement without fear of the catheter being pulled out, as there is no exit site
The E Site is the exit site
for the tRNA anticodon once it deposits its amino acid from the cytoplasm onto the growing polypeptide chain.
(19) Exit site
infections were defined as erythema, tenderness, induration or purulence affecting 2 cm of the skin at the exit site
of the catheter.
