Abstract:
Article describes the diagnosis and management of 2 patients with acute cervical spinal cord injury (SCI), both with deep vein thrombosis (DVT) of the upper extremity associated with peripherally inserted central catheters. Current clinical practice guidelines for SCI do not adequately examine issues necessary to recognize and manage upper-extremity DVT in patients with acute SCI. authors recommend that future guidelines describe the increased risk of upper-extremity DVT in patients with indwelling central venous catheters.
