Introduction
Introduction: The gold standard of vascular access for chronic hemodialysis patients is the arteriovenous fistula (AVF). If an AVF cannot be created, the hemodialysis catheter can be inserted into the internal jugular, femoral or subclavian vein. After exhausting the abovementioned standard accesses, translumbar access to the inferior vena cava (IVC) is considered a quick, last-chance and rescue method.

Aim
Retrospective analysis of early complications (EC) of translumbar IVC catheterization using one type of catheter by one medical team.

Material and methods
From January 2010 to October 2019, a total of 34 translumbar IVC catheters were implanted in 27 patients.

Results
A major EC was found in 1 (2.9%) procedure. Minor EC occurred in 23.5 attempts. None of these complications required an intervention.

Conclusions
In patients with exhausted possibilities of obtaining standard vascular access for HD, translumbar IVC cannulation proved to be a safe and effective method.
