There is actually two techniques of subclavian vein ultrasonography-guided venous catheterization : the axial and longitudinal approach. Currently, nothing makes it possible to privilege one technique compared to the other. This study aims to determine the best ultrasonography-guided method.

Condition Intervention
Cardiac Surgery
Procedure: Echoguided vein puncture

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Participant)
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Official Title: Subclavian Vein Ultrasound Guided Cannulation in Adult: Transversal and Longitudinal Approach Comparison

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Time from vein puncture to seldinger guide placement [ Time Frame: After anesthesia during cardiac surgery ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Complications [ Time Frame: During cardiac surgery until 48 hours after the end ]

Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: April 2009
Study Completion Date: November 2009
Primary Completion Date: November 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: 1
Transversal approach guided placement
Procedure: Echoguided vein puncture
Puncture with echographic visualization of vein in transversal and longitudinal way.
Active Comparator: 2
Longitudinal approach guided placement
Procedure: Echoguided vein puncture
Puncture with echographic visualization of vein in transversal and longitudinal way.

Detailed Description:
This prospective randomized study will concern 100 adult patients operated of cardiac surgery under general anesthesia and requiring a central venous catheter. Patients will be randomized by an operator experienced in echoguided venous catheterization to be included in the axial (50 patients) or the longitudinal (50 patients) approach group. The device used will be a vascular probe of 7.5 MHz (Sonosite I Look®). The principal outcome measure will be the time from percutaneous puncture to the rise of the metallic guide (seldinger technique). The secondary criteria will be the rate of complication and failure. A series of echographic (size and depth of the subclavian vein and biometric (BMI, theoretical distance not from puncture (way of Aubaniac)/réel) measurements will be done to identify predictive conditions of success or failure depending of the echographic approach.
