Introduction: Because of widespread use of peripheral venous catheters its complications is also common. One of the most common complications, is inflammation of the vein or thrombophlebitis. The role of the various factors on its incidence have been identified, but the role of some personal factors have not been studied.

Methods: A total of 232 patients who had venous catheter for therapeutic purposes, in a two-week period were evaluated for incidence of thrombophlebitis through constant observation and the relationship between incidence of this complication by gender, occupation and education of  patient and so education as well as experience of nurses were analyzed. Final analysis was performed by Chi-square and Mann-Whitney and also logistic regression.

Results: A total of 55 patients (23.6%) of these subjects (33 males and 22 females) were suffering from thrombophlebitis. It were not observed any relation between patient gender and job and so work experience of nurse and the incidence of thrombophlebitis. But the higher education of nurse and lower education of patients reduced the incidence of thrombophlebitis.

Conclusion: It seems that in addition to physical and underlying disease, other factors such as level of education also have an impact on the incidence of thrombophlebitis.
