The article describes the technique, duration of catheterization, complications and outcome of patients having a catheter inserted for haemodialysis. It states that vein access is used commonly in carrying out diagnostic and therapeutic procedures but with the right preparation due to complications. It notes recommends the femoral vein approach for emergency haemodialysis because of its low rate complications.
