This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
University Hospital, Caen Identifier:
First received: January 13, 2006
Last updated: November 13, 2014
Last verified: November 2014
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a jugular route leads to a lower rate of complications as compared with a femoral route for catheterization in patients admitted in several intensive care units in France who develop acute renal failure requiring hemodiafiltration or hemodialysis.

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Complications of Jugular and Femoral Venous Catheterization in Critically Ill Patients Requiring Hemodialysis: A Randomized Controlled Trial
