OBJECTIVE Previous studies have shown that inexperienced operators have a lower success rate than experienced operators for insertion of internal jugular cannulae using the anatomical landmark technique. The object of this study was to determine the rate of successful insertion, incidence of immediate complications and incidence of infection for temporary hemodialysis cannulae inserted under ultrasound guidance by experienced and inexperienced operators. METHODS The reason for insertion… CONTINUE READING
