 Conventional catheterizationUnstressed tail catheterization

TraumaProfound Minimal
AnaestheticGeneral Local
Rest after surgery4–6 d15–30 min
Weight lossObvious Not obvious
Blood glucose fluctuationElevated 10–20 mg/dLNot obvious

Conventional catheterization: jugular vein and carotid artery catheterization. The data of conventional catheterization were extracted from references [7, 8, 1820]. NA: chronic data not available.
