Abstract

The incidence of implantable arterial post-related bloodstream infections (IAP-RBSI) among patients with unresectable hepatic malignancies is not well defined. We reviewed the 9-year incidence of implantable arterial post-related bloodstream infections in patients with hepatic malignancies, at a tertiary care center in Japan. The incidence was 1.9 infections per 10,000 catheter-days.
