BACKGROUND Central venous catheters (CVCs) remain the most common vascular access in pediatric hemodialysis patients. Risks for infection and dysfunction are greatest among patients using CVCs as opposed to those with arteriovenous fistulae (AVFs) and arteriovenous grafts (AVGs). Studies of adult hemodialysis patients show greater morbidity and mortality in patients with a CVC. The study goal is to determine whether hemodialysis access in pediatric patients influences urea clearance (Kt/V and… CONTINUE READING
