Safe and effective removal of cyanoacrylate vascular access catheter securement adhesive in neonates.

Neonatal vascular access continues to pose challenges. Recent times have seen considerable innovations in practice and the design and manufacture of materials used to provide infusion-based therapies with the intent of reducing the incidence and severity of vascular access-related complications. However, despite these efforts, vascular access-related complication rates remain high in this patient group and research evidence remains incomplete. In neonates, a medical-grade formulation of cyanoacrylate adhesive is widely used to secure percutaneously inserted central venous catheters and is beginning to establish a role in supporting the effective securement of other devices, such as umbilical and peripheral intravenous catheters. This Perspective article considers issues specific to the removal of cyanoacrylate used to secure vascular access devices from neonatal skin before its bonding releases due to natural skin exfoliation processes. The aim of this information is to ensure the safe and effective removal of octyl-cyanoacrylate adhesive-secured vascular access catheters from neonatal skin and stimulate professional discussion.
