Drug: heparin
heparin 1000iu/ml as catheter lock at the end of hemodialysis

Detailed Description:

Double lumen infection is one of the causes of morbidity and mortality in hemodialysis patients. Many strategies used to prevent it and one of them is antibiotic lock. Thus we select chronic hemodialysis patients and divided them into 2 groups. One group received cloxacillin and heparin as catheter lock and the second group received only heparin lock.
