|Title:||Tunnelled catheters for the haemodialysis patient.|
|Citation:||EUR J VASC ENDOVASC SURG, 2007, 33 (1), pp. 105-112|
|Abstract:||Haemodialysis depends upon the establishment of a durable means of vascular access. Although the creation of a successful arterio-venous Fistulae (AVF) is the ideal, this is not always possible or practical. Tunnelled catheters play an important role as an interim/bridge technique for emergency access or while an AVF matures, but may be associated with significant morbidity. The aim of this review is to highlight recent evidence based developments in tunnelled catheters, including methods of placement, complications and possible management strategies.|
