Treatment for superficial infusion thrombophlebitis of the upper extremity | Cochrane

Superficial thrombophlebitis is an inflammatory condition of the veins just below the surface of the skin. The development of superficial thrombophlebitis frequently complicates the insertion of needles into the veins for catheters to give medication or fluids in hospitalised patients. The best treatment for these blood clots in the hands and arms remains unclear. While local treatment has the potential to improve the painful symptoms and patient discomfort, it may not prevent complications, including infection or the extension or transit of the clot into the deep vein system.

Live attenuated influenza vaccine for children with egg allergy

Influenza vaccine is egg derived and has been contraindicated in people with egg allergy. It contains low residual levels of the egg protein ovalbumin and its use in people with egg allergy theoretically risks an allergic reaction.1 However, no study has shown that residual ovalbumin content can cause adverse events (including anaphylaxis related morbidity or mortality) in egg allergic recipients, or that vaccination is riskier for these recipients than for the general population.2 Many allergy specialists have circumvented the contraindication by using vaccine skin testing, vaccine desensitisation, and vaccines containing low concentrations of ovalbumin (<1.2 µg/mL). But governmental agencies and vaccine manufacturers have continued to issue this contraindication annually.2 3
