objective: to evaluate the impact of the use of topical mupirocin on the insertion of central venous catheter for hemodialysis. methods: this was a systematic review with meta-analysis. results: after a careful and extensive search, we included three clinical trials that compared the use of mupirocin versus other intervention in central venous catheter for hemodialysis. conclusion: the study found that the use of topical mupirocin is effective in reducing episodes of infection among hemodialysis patients, increasing duration time for catheter, and significantly reducing s aureus infections, which are the most prevalent in this population.
