Objective: The aim of this study is to explore the related factors affecting infection risk caused by peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) for bone tumor patients. Method: A retrospective analysis was performed for 223 bone tumor patients who received PICC and were admitted to our hospital from 2004 to 2017. A total of 18 cases (infection group) with PICC catheter-related infections and 205 cases without infection (noninfection group) were studied. First, factor analysis of variance or Chi-square test was applied to compare independent risk factors for PICC catheter-related infections, between bone tumor patients with catheter-related infections and those without catheter-related infections. Results: This retrospective analysis involved a total of 18 patients with PICC infections and 205 patients without infections. The infection rate was 8.07%. Factor analysis of variance showed that many factors were related to PICC catheter-related infections, including experience of operator (χ2 = 3.48, P < 0.05), catheter retention time (χ2 = 7.478, P < 0.05), receiving chemotherapy or not (χ2 = 2.43, P < 0.05), Karnofsky Performance Scale scores (χ2 = 2.19, P < 0.05) and the frequency of replacing pad pasting on the point of puncture (χ2 = 2.23). Logistic regression analysis showed that PICC catheter retention time (odds ratio [OR] = 4.21, P < 0.05) and operator experience (OR = 2.80, P < 0.05) were independent factors affected PICC catheter-related infections. Conclusion: Catheter-related infections were related to experience of PICC operatorand length of catheter retention time.
