  • ECHINOCANDIN AND ETHANOL LOCK THERAPY TREATMENT OF FUNGAL CATHETER INFECTIONS PEDIATRIC INFECTIOUS DISEASE JOURNAL Pieroni, K. P., Nespor, C., Poole, R. L., Kerner, J. A., Berquist, W. E. 2013; 32 (3): 289-291

    Abstract:

    Ethanol lock therapy has been implemented to prevent infections of central venous catheters as well as to treat infections. Fungal catheter-associated blood stream infections are historically more difficult to treat and have required removal of central venous catheters. We report the largest case series to date, successfully treating 5 of 7 fungal catheter-associated blood stream infections with ethanol lock therapy and systemic echinocandin administration.
