Abstract

Uncertainty exists regarding the management of central venous catheters (CVCs) in neonates with bloodstream infections. Early CVC removal may reduce the risk of persistent or complicated infection and its associated morbidity and mortality. However, since CVCs provide secure vascular access to deliver nutrition and medications, the possible harms of early removal versus expectant management need to be considered.
