Cardiac tamponade due to umbilical venous catheter in the newborn.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

With more and more extreme premature and very low-birth weight babies being resuscitated, umbilical central venous catheterisation is now being used more frequently in neonatal intensive care. The authors present a case of cardiac tamponade following umbilical venous catheterisation in a neonate, an uncommon, yet potentially fatal complication. The patient was diagnosed at the appropriate time by echocardiography and urgent pericardiocentesis proved lifesaving.
