Subclavian vein catheterization for acute and chronic haemodialysis. A safe temporary vascular access

Abstract

The technique and use of a percutaneous subclavian vein catheter for haemodialysis in 20 patients are reported. The catheterization procedure carried a very low morbidity, and blood flow rates of 200–250ml/min were achieved through the catheters. Use of this angioaccess saves future possible sites for permanent vascular access. Infectious complications were… (More)
