Utility of Daily Catheter-Drawn Blood Cultures to Predict Catheter-Related Bacteremia in Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplanted Patients/Kateterden Gunluk Alinan Kan Kulturlerinin Hematopoietik Kok Hucre Nakli Yapilan Hastalarda Kateter Ile Iliskili Bakteriyemiyi Ongormedeki Yaran (Research Article) (Report)

Introduction Infectious complications constitute an important cause of morbidity and mortality in patients who undergo hematopoietic progenitor transplantation (HSCT). Bloodstream infections are among the most frequent bacterial infections in these patients, and central vascular catheters are a very common source of the bacteremia [1,2]. Catheter-related bacteremia (CRB) is an increasing-in-frequency and potentially life-threatening complication.
