Background: Cuffed central venous catheters (CCVC), as preferred types of vascular access for hemodialysis have several complications (e.g. infection, thrombosis, embolism, bleeding and fractures). This study aimed to describe the complications of CCVC.

Materials and Methods: In this cross-sectional study, the incidence of complications associated with CCVC in patients referred to Kashan Akhavan dialysis center was evaluated during a six-month period between June 2013 to December 2013. The census sampling method was used and patients in each dialysis session were evaluated for all catheter-related complications using the checklist. Finally, a nephrologist approved the complications.

Results: From a total of 183 patients admitted to the Kashan Akhavan dialysis center during the six months, 43 patients were enrolled with permanent hemodialysis catheters. Catheter-related infection and thrombosis were common complications. The incidence rates of catheter-related infection and thrombosis were 1.87 and 1.5 per 1,000 daily catheter use, respectively.

Conclusion: Catheter-related infection and thrombosis are two common complications among hemodialysis patients used a CCVC. Therefore, the necessary measures should be taken to reduce these complications.
