Abstract: Background: The use of hemodialysis catheters maybe associated with mechanical and/or infectious complications. The rate of these complications is variable. In this study we looked at the hemodialysis catheter- related complications in Khartoum Teaching Hospital Dialysis Center. Methods: This was a hospital-based, prospective, cross-sectional study conducted in the Hemodialysis Center in Khartoum Teaching Hospital from September to November 2010. The study population was 100 adult patients who required hemodialysis through central venous catheter. Results: Internal jugular and femoral veins were used for dialysis access in 83 and 17 patients respectively. Forty five percent of the patients developed complications. Femoral vein was more likely to be associated with infectious complications: 12 out of 17 (70.6%) (P=0,001). Diabetes was a statistically significant predictive factor for the development of complications (P = 0.014). Conclusion: The use of temporary femoral catheter was considerable. The frequency of the development of complications is increasing. Femoral line and diabetes mellitus were important factors for the development of catheter-related complications.
