Abstract [en]

The use of a central venous catheters (CVC) always involves an increased risk of infection and thrombotic complications, subsequently increasing patient suffering, prolonged care and health care related costs. One contributing cause of infection is that the surface of the catheter is quickly colonized by bacteria, forming a biofilm, hard to reach by and/or resistant to antibiotics and the patient’s immune defense system. Catheter related thrombosis may also promote colonization of microbes on the fibrin sheet at the surface, and at the same time impact on CVC functionality by lumen occlusion or, in a rare worst-case scenario – cause life threatening embolic events. Coatings with silver or metal alloys can reduce the risk for complications. Our research group have previously identified a correlation between material degradation in medical devices used in patients and exposure time and infections. This talk will discuss the impact of material degradation of different types of CVCs used for patients undergoing chemotherapy against breast cancer.  The results from an evaluation study of a anti infectious noble metal alloy coated CVC compared with an uncoated CVC for tolerability (Adverse Events, AEs), performance and noble metal durability on the surface will also be discussed.
