Dialysis performance of single lumen subclavian hemodialysis: a comparative study with single lumen fistula hemodialysis.


Study of hemodialysis performance and recirculation ratios of subclavian catheter hemodialysis is reported. Data are compared to the results obtained when a conventional intrafistular single-lumen hemodialysis needle is used under similar conditions. Renal blood flow values were slightly but not significantly lower for subclavian hemodialysis. Small… (More)
