Tunneled central venous catheters are often used in children on chronic hemodialysis. This study was done to evaluate the spectrum of catheter-related bacteremia (CRB) and to determine predictors of recurrent CRB in children on hemodialysis. Chart review was performed in 59 children from a pediatric dialysis unit with chronic, tunneled, cuffed hemodialysis catheters between January 1999 and December 2003.
