Bottom Line: The success and complication rates were compared for the two sides.There was no significant difference between success rate and side of catheterization.Compared with the right side, insertion of the cannula on the left side resulted in fewer catheter tip misplacements.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Percutaneous subclavian vein catheterization is one of the most common invasive procedures performed in cardiac surgery. The aim of this study was to compare left and right subclavian vein catheter placement via the infraclavicular approach in patients who undergo coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery.

Methods: This prospective, randomized clinical trial was performed in193 patients. The technique applied for cannulation was infraclavicular approach for both the right and the left sides. Subclavian vein of other side was attempted only when catheterization at initial side was unsuccessful at two attempts. The success and complication rates were compared for the two sides.

Results: On193 patients, catheterization attempts were performed. Overall 177 catheterizations (91.7%) were successful during the first attempt, 105 (92.1%) on the right side and 72 (91.1%) on the left side. There was no significant difference between success rate and side of catheterization. Malposition of the catheter tip on the right side (9.6%) was significantly more than the left side (0%) (P= 0.003). The differences in other complications on two sides were statistically insignificant.

Conclusion: Compared with the right side, insertion of the cannula on the left side resulted in fewer catheter tip misplacements. Incidence of cannulation failure and other complications were similar on both sides.

Mentions: Malposition of the catheter tip when inserted on the right side (9.6%) was significantly more common than on the left side (0%) (P= 0.003). In ten patients, the catheter tip was located in the ipsilateral internal jugular vein, (Figure 1) and in one, the catheter tip was located in the contralateral subclavian vein (Figure 2).
