CLINICAL DATA: Septic left shoulder joint



PROCEDURE: The patient was advised of the possible risks and complications and agreed to undergo the procedure. The patient was then brought to the angiographic suite for the procedure. The right arm was prepped with chlorhexidine, draped in the usual sterile fashion using maximum barrier technique (cap and mask, sterile gown, sterile gloves, large sterile sheet, hand hygiene and cutaneous antisepsis) and infiltrated locally with 1% Lidocaine. Ultrasound demonstrated patency of the right basilic vein, and this was documented with an image. Under real-time ultrasound guidance, this vein was accessed with a 21 gauge micropuncture needle and image documentation was performed. A 0.018 wire was introduced in to the vein. Over this, a 5 French single lumen power PICC was advanced to the lower SVC/right atrial junction. Fluoroscopy during the procedure and fluoro spot radiograph confirms appropriate catheter position. The catheter was flushed and covered with a sterile dressing.
