The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Jae-Hyon Bahk, MD, PhD, Seoul National University Hospital
  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the shoulder retraction by placing a saline bag between the scapula influences a success rate of subclavian vein catheterization.

Condition Intervention
Subclavian Vein Catheterization Procedure: position of shoulder retraction Procedure: position of neutral shoulder

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Prevention

Further study details as provided by Jae-Hyon Bahk, MD, PhD, Seoul National University Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • catheterization success rate [ Time Frame: immediately after catheterization (an expected average of 1 hour) ]
    Subclavian vein catheterization will be performed after the induction of anesthesia and before the start of surgery.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • location of catheter tip [ Time Frame: an expected average of one day after surgery ]
    Postoperative chest X-ray will be taken to check for the location of catheter tip immediately after surgery.


Enrollment: 362
Study Start Date: June 2011
Study Completion Date: January 2013
Primary Completion Date: May 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: neutral shoulder
neutral shoulder position during subclavian vein catheterization
Procedure: position of neutral shoulder
neutral shoulder position during subclavian vein catheterization
Experimental: shoulder retraction
position of shoulder retraction during subclavian vein catheterization
Procedure: position of shoulder retraction
position of shoulder retraction by placing a saline bag between the scapula
