|Title:||The great saphenous vein for central venous access and haemodialysis.|
|Citation:||NEPHROL DIAL TRANSPLANT, 2009, 24 (1), pp. 208-210|
|Abstract:||Utilising an open surgical technique the Great Saphenous vein in the proximal thigh can be used for the insertion of central venous catheters for haemodialysis. This approach is safe and efficacious, and may be performed under local or general anaesthesia. This technique is of particular importance in patients requiring vascular access for haemodialysis in whom the upper central veins are stenosed and the femoral vessels are not amenable to percutaneous cannulation.|
