In 34 patients with chronic renal insufficiency or failure, 43 small-bore central catheters were placed via the internal or external jugular veins: right internal jugular vein, 28; left internal jugular vein, 14; right external jugular vein, one. Central venous access was achieved in all patients (mean catheter dwell time, 28 days; range, 3-99 days), with two minor complications (arterial puncture and catheter damage during suturing). Tunneled jugular small-bore central catheters are a vein-preserving alternative to peripherally inserted central catheters in this population.
