Figure 1

Kaplan Meier Plots comparing the cumulative incidence of DVT events between patients who had either a PICC or LTSTC (e.g. Hickman) line inserted. A total 583 patients were identified within the reviewing period, of which 346 had PICC and 237 had LTSTC. Log rank test p = 0.003. NB: PICC = peripherally-inserted central venous catheter; LTSTC = long term skin tunneled catheter (i.e. Hickman line).
