GOMEZ, Javier et al. Prevalence of catheter-related haemodialysis infections in Hospital Universitario San Rafael, Bogotá, Colombia. Rev. colom. nefrol. [online]. 2018, vol.5, n.1, pp.17-25. ISSN 2500-5006.


Catheter-associated infection is an entity with multiple complications, a condition that alters the quality of life of all patients on hemodialysis. The aim was to estimate the prevalence of infection associated with intravascular hemodialysis devices at the San Rafael Clinical University Hospital over a period of two years, as well as to evaluate the associated infectious complications, readmissions and death in the study population.


Cross-sectional study of association in which the totality of hemodialysis patients attended in the institution during 2015 and 2016 was included. The analysis is presented in descriptive terms and associations of demographic variables and other outcomes with infection.


The prevalence of catheter-associated infection was 5.62%. A total of 320 patients were included, 18 with catheter-associated infection. The most common germ was methicillin susceptible Staphylococcus aureus with 61.1% of cases. There is a statistically significant association with septic thrombosis and the need for admission to the ICU (p = 0.0000).
