In critically ill (preterm) neonates, catheter-related venous thromboembolism (CVTE) can be a life-threatening complication. Evidence on optimal management in the literature is lacking. In the Netherlands, a consensus-based national management guideline was developed to create uniform CVTE management.
The objectives of this publication are to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the national guideline.
