Abstract

Hemodialysis access is particularly difficult in children weighing under 10 kg because they have such small blood vessels. The larger proximal femoral or antecubital vessels are often used to construct external shunts, internal fistulas or bridge grafts. This paper discusses clinical experience over the past 3 years, which lead the authors to advocate the use of right atrial silastic catheters as the primary hemodialysis access for small children.
