Insertion of Central Feeding Lines

Dr S Gabe

This DVD presents two cases: the first, a patient who has been on intravenous nutrition for five years following a mesenteric infarct. This excerpt shows how effective ultrasound guidance can be with line insertion. The second excerpt describes digital subtraction venography in a 45 year old woman who has undergone multiple operations for peptic ulcer disease complicated by entero-cutaneous fistulae and now has severe adhesive disease. Fluroscopy describes the path of the vein for the doctor, whereupon a guidewire is applied. An exit site is prepared for the feeding line, and the line is inserted through the channel.

This DVD can be played on DVD players attached to TVs and on computers with a DVD drive and suitable DVD playing software.
