Abstract

The use of peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) has increased over the past few years due to their less serious insertion complications. The purpose of the present study was to determine whether patients receiving PICCs impregnated with minocycline and rifampin had a lower rate of CLABSI compared with a concurrent control group of patients receiving uncoated PICCs.
