Introduction: Central Venous Catheterization is necessary in uremic patient (before dialysis) and many other conditions. Inthis study we demonstrated the advantages of ultrasonography to perform the procedure.Materials and methods: 48 uremic patient were submitted to ultrasound-guided central venous catheterization. The procedurewas performed following the Seldinger “one shot” technique.Results: The mean operative time was 4 minutes, with a high rate of success (100%) and a low percentage of complications(2%).Conclusion: The ultrasound-guided central venous catheterization is a safe procedure, rapid and easy to perform. The procedurehas a low rate of failures and complications and a high rate of success. It is suitable in all patients with vascular anatomicalvariations, “difficult neck”, or coagulation disorders.
