Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a jugular route leads to a lower rate of complications as compared with a femoral route for catheterization in patients admitted in several intensive care units in France who develop acute renal failure requiring hemodiafiltration or hemodialysis.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Kidney Failure, Acute Critical Illness Procedure: Femoral route for hemodialysis Procedure: Jugular route for hemodialysis Not Applicable
