Today, the number of patients with central vascular access is increasing. This requirement is particularly important in patients with oncology, dialysis, trauma and intensive care.
Although the indications for use of CVC are expanding day by day, they are generally diagnostic for long-term systemic chemotherapy, blood products transfusion, hemodialysis, plasmapheresis, parenteral nutrition, stem cell collection, intravenous fluid administration, intravenous drug delivery, monitoring, and repeated blood collection for laboratory tests. and therapeutic procedures.
In parallel with the widespread use of CVC, there is an increase in the number of complications associated with these devices. CVC complications are divided into two groups as early and late period. In the early period, due to the experience of the team performing the procedure and the suitability of the conditions, pneumothorax, hemothorax, hemopneumothorax, arterial injury, air embolism, venous injury or spasm, improper placement of the catheter and arrhythmia are possible complications.
Complications during long-term follow-up include infection, thrombosis, venous stenosis or occlusion, catheter migration, catheter breakage, peripheral or central catheter embolization, and catheter dysfunction associated with fibrin sheath formation. Among the complications listed above, catheter-related infections play an important role. Catheter-associated infections can lead to severe clinical problems such as catheter removal or life-threatening sepsis.
Since there are no commonly defined standard definitions and definitions about catheter infections, there is a lot of confusion about this issue. As a result, catheter-related infection rates are reported in a wide range from 1% to 40%. In addition to the lack of standard definitions, there is also a clear definition of catheter sepsis, which is not clear about what is meant by catheter sepsis.
VeinOFF offers a unique treatment for varicose veins. The patient does not feel pain due to not receiving anesthesia. In order to cover the varicose (non-functional) containers, a small needle with a simple ablative polymerization method is used with cyanoacrylate adhesive.
This adhesive has been used as a safe medical adhesive for many years in other parts of the body. However, it has recently become available for varicose veins. No side effects or side effects were observed. In contrast to other endovenous procedures, such as laser or radiofrequency, VeinOFF does not require large volumes of anesthesia, and in most patients, a single local anesthetic injection is sufficient to change needle entry, and the patient can resume normal daily work.
