The central venous catheter part 2

Central venous catheter


Placement procedure

The central venous catheter is put in using ultrasound to help with correct placement. A local anesthetic (freezing) is used.

The catheter is held in right place by stitch  on the skin. If your central venous catheter is going to be used permanently (because an arteriovenous fistula or graft cannot be made), the stitch may be removed once the catheter is firmly in place.
