Surface Treated Catheters for Vascular Access in Extracorporeal Detoxification Methods are Needed

Rolf Bambauer*; Ralf Schiel

    Background: Catheter-Related Infections (CRI), thrombosis, and stenosis are among the most frequent complications associated with catheters which are inserted in vessels as vascular access. These problems are usually related to the handling of the staff, the catheter materials, and the surface properties of the catheter. To mitigate such complications surface treatment process of the outer surface, such as ion beam assisted deposition are investigated in a retrospective study from 1992 to 2007, to prove if the surface treatment of the catheters is a sufficient solution.
