The cephalic vein within the deltopectoral groove provides adequate access to the central venous system for the PermCath hemodialysis catheter. Unlike EJV techniques, which are successful in few instances, the cephalic vein approach was successful in approximately 75 percent of instances. In addition, the rate of complications secondary to bleeding or catheter kinking are decreased with the cephalic vein technique as compared with insertion through the EJV or IJV. We conclude that the cephalic vein is a dependable and functional approach to the central venous system for the PermCath hemodialysis catheter.
