We aimed to describe the incidence of vascular access infections (VAI) over the course of 33 months after implementation of continuous and systematic interventions in an outpatient dialysis unit in Sao Paulo, Brazil” Scorzoni Lessa et al (2018).

Background:

Central lines have high risk of infection in outpatient hemodialysis, which leads to increased morbidity and mortality. We aimed to describe the incidence of vascular access infections (VAI) over the course of 33 months after implementation of continuous and systematic interventions in an outpatient dialysis unit in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
