The Supreme Court also provided a copy of the CVC report to Verma's advocate, the sources claimed.
The rationale behind CVC removal in all patients with candidemia is that the catheter is almost always the source of the infection, and source control is an important component of any therapy.
Various studies have evaluated the effect of CVC removal on patient outcome (6-24) although many suffered from important analysis biases such as the inclusion of patients who did not have candidemia or patients whose diagnosis of candidemia was made post-mortem, the reliance of univariate analysis only, the omission of key host prognostic variables such as a validated severity of illness score and others.
Perhaps most importantly is the lack of information on the day of CVC removal after candidemia which allows us to determine whether the currently advocated "removal as early as possible" is supported by the evidence.
On a more practical level, the recommendation for early removal of CVCs in all instances is very difficult to implement because most patients with candidemia may be severely ill, thrombocytopenic and have more than one CVC which begs the following questions: which CVCs should be first removed and why; when should the second CVC be taken out and on what basis and how safe is it to insert another CVC in such critically ill patients.
