Peripherally Inserted Central Catheters (PICC) consist of an intravenous device widely used in neonates in intensive care units, characterizing a procedure that is related to a long repertoire of complications that can intensify neonatal morbidity and mortality. The study aims to review and analyze the factors associated with complications resulting from the use of peripherally inserted central catheter in neonates. Method: This is a bibliographic, descriptive analysis, of the integrative literature review type, with searches carried out in the Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO) and PubMed databases. Eight complete articles were selected, available in open access in Portuguese and English and published in the years 2018 to 2022. Results: From the analysis of the classes, three categories emerged: Class 1- Risk Factors Associated with PICC Use, Class 2 - Complications Deriving from the use of the PICC, Class 3 - Professional Training against the Maintenance of the PICC. Conclusion: it was evidenced that care related to the insertion and maintenance of the PICC is mainly directed to the control of nosocomial infection, highlighting the adherence to aseptic techniques for handling the catheter, performing the dressing and proper hand hygiene.
