Central venous occlusions are a frequent problem in hemodialysis patients. We describe the case of a patient with end-stage vascular access in whom we successfully inserted a direct intra-atrial dialysis line during coronary artery bypass grafting. This technique could be a significant contribution to patients in whom alternative vascular access options are exhausted.
