The use of an implantable central venous (Hickman) catheter for long-term venous access in dogs undergoing bone marrow transplantation

Canadian Journal of Veterinary Research 56(4): 382-386
The use of an implantable central venous (Hickman) catheter for long-term venous access in dogs undergoing bone marrow transplantation
Methods were developed for the insertion and maintenance of long-term central venous catheters in dogs in order to provide reliable venous access during bone marrow transplantation. Single-lumen, 9.6 Fr Hickman catheters with a VitaCuff were used. The catheter was inserted into the jugular vein via a surgical cut-down, and tunnelled subcutaneously to exit over the thoracic spine. Fluoroscopic guidance was necessary to ensure proper positioning of the catheter tip in the right atrium.
