BACKGROUND Although most catheter problems in haemodialysis are related to infection or clotting, bleeding associated with the heparin lock is of clinical importance especially during peri-operative conditions. The objective of this in vitro study is to estimate the volume of heparin that may leak into the circulation immediately after performing a catheter lock. METHODS Different volumes (ml) of a dextrose solution were used to perform a catheter lock on haemodialysis catheters. The tip of… CONTINUE READING
