Central venous catheters (CVCs) provide easy, immediate and rapid vascular access (VA) for hemodialysis (HD) in patients with acute renal failure (ARF), and in an increasing number of patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) as well. For this purpose, the vessels mainly used are the cephalic, jugular, subclavian and femoral veins. In some patients, vascular catheter insertion via these routes can become impossible. We report two hopeless cases, in which the external iliac veins (EIVs) were used as a temporary VA insertion site as a last resort.
