 en A Cautionary Tale on the Central Venous Catheter: Medical Note for Oral Physicians
Chidambaram, Ramasamy


Complexity in the health status of patients with kidney disease forces to seek the aid of medical devices such as the central venous catheter (CVC) that is essential in order to perform hemodialysis. Elementary information about the CVC, as required for the oral healthcare professionals, has been documented so as to serve as a medical manual. This communication is the first of its kind that conjointly delineates vital considerations, which precede dental maneuvers in patients implanted with a CVC.
