In this report it is described a successful positioning of a Tesio dialysis catheter in occluded inferior vena cava of a 42 year old male patient, with longstanding end-stage renal disease, who presented to our department with two occluded dialysis catheters left iliofemoral-inferior vena cava. The increasing number of patients requiring hemodialysis has determined in the last period a major request of endovascular procedures for the “terminal access problems” as in this particular case of thrombosed venous access.
