Abstract

A multicenter prospective study has been planned, in a large sample of Italian end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients, aiming to assess the vascular access (VA) site-related infection rates and to identify variables associated with them. All ESRD patients undergoing chronic hemodialysis (HD) in the participating centers will be enrolled in the study. Participating centers were selected on a voluntary basis. Patients will be enrolled within an 18-month recruitment period. Primary study end points are the overall incidence rate of VA-related infections in ESRD patients on chronic HD (defined as infection episodes/100 patient-months), and the incidence rate of different types of VA-related infections (exit site, tunnel and bacteraemia/sepsis). All VA types in use will be evaluated: fistula, graft, tunneled (permanent) central venous catheter (CVC) and temporary CVC.
