picc placement in an amputated arm


Can a picc be placed in an amputated arm( below the elbow)? we are wondering and if not why can it not be placed?



As long as the amputation is

As long as the amputation is healed and there are no circulatory problems, then yes I see no reason not to use it for a PICC.
