dc.description.abstractAs with several other topics in Neonatal Medicine, the choice of vessel in umbilical catheterisation in the ill neonate is subject to controversy. Both procedures carry potentially lethal risks in the newborn and they should not be utilised as routine procedures in Special Care Baby Units. It is here proposed in this short article to include a brief review of the relevant literature in order to justify the present policy in our SCBU at Karen Grech Hospital, at least until such time as future developments may render amendment necessary.en_GB
