Umbilical Artery Catheter

Figure 7.45. Gangrene of the left buttock following umbilical artery catherization. The umbilical artery catheter was positioned in the iliac artery radiographical-ly. There is a well-known association between injection of medications into the umbilical artery and necrosis and gangrene of the buttock and sciatic nerve palsy.

Figure 7.48. Placement of an umbilical artery catheter was difficult in this infant. On the first and second attempts the catheter went down each leg. On the third attempt the catheter was placed in the aorta. It remained in place for 4 hours when blood was noted in the urine and the legs were both noted to have some discol-oration.This figure shows the status 19 hours after the catheter was removed. The infant continued to improve.
