PURPOSE: Dialysis access failure is a major cause of morbidity in patients with end-stage renal disease. The Fistula First Breakthrough Initiative (FFBI) dictates arteriovenous fistulae (AVFs) should be preferred over arteriovenous grafts (AVGs) as first line for surgically placed accesses. The purpose of this study was to compare patency rates of surgical dialysis accesses in our mature, urban population after the FFBI. METHODS: Current dialysis patients with accesses placed between 2006 and 2011 were included...

Aims: Short-term studies have reported left ventricular (LV) dilatation following surgical creation of arteriovenous fistulas (AVF) or arteriovenous grafts (AVGs), but chronic cardiac structural and functional changes have not been examined or related to clinical outcomes following AVF/AVG. We sought to characterize the long-term changes in cardiac structure and function in patients undergoing shunt creation for haemodialysis. Methods and results: A retrospective analysis was performed of patients undergoing echocardiography before and after surgical AVF/AVG creation for the initiation of haemodialysis...

BACKGROUND: Most guidelines recommend the creation of arteriovenous fistula (AVF) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage 4. However, an increasing number of studies suggest that early AVF creation leads to high rates of AVF failure and death before dialysis commencement. Only the Japanese guideline recommends AVF creation at CKD stage 5; however, no data are available regarding access-related outcomes at this stage. METHOD: This was a multicenter cohort study involving Japanese CKD stage 5 patients who underwent preemptive AVF creation from 2009 to 2013...

OBJECTIVE: To study the effect of early cannulation of arteriovenous fistulas (AVF) on early AVF failure. METHODS: Analysis of two databases of access operations and dialysis sessions from 1/12/2002 till 1/4/2015. Follow-up until 1/4/2016. Functional dialysis use defined as six consecutive cannulations of the AVF with two needles. Early cannulation defined as needling of the AVF within 30 days of creation. Early failure was defined as abandonment for new form of access within 90 days of first cannulation...

Many guidelines recommend that end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients should have a permanent vascular access, preferably an autologous arteriovenous fistula (AVF), at the start of renal replacement therapy. Nevertheless, a large proportion of patients still start hemodialysis with a central venous catheter (CVC). On the other hand, there are increasing numbers of patients in whom an AVF has been created, but who never actually end up on dialysis, as well as a substantial number of patients in whom creation of a vascular access has been attempted unsuccessfully...

Autogenous fistulas and in particular radiocephalic fistulas are recommended as the first vascular access for hemodialysis. Unfortunately, the rates of early failure and non-maturation are very high. For more than a decade, brachial plexus block has been proposed as the anesthesia of choice for fistula creation due to its beneficial sympathectomy-like effect, causing vasodilation and attenuation of spasm. Until recently, there was not a single randomized clinical study supporting this proposition. Because performing regional anesthesia is time-consuming and requires expertise, many surgeons prefer local or general anesthesia for vascular access surgery...

Impaired fistula maturation is associated with puncture-related complications, insufficient dialysis and potential permanent access failure. Non-maturation is frequently initiated by stenotic vascular access vessels comprising the outflow veins, the arteriovenous anastomosis and infrequently the inflow artery. Further findings in maturation protraction are central venous stenoses or accessory outflow veins. Depending on the underlying pathology, several endovascular approaches to boost fistula maturation are possible...

AIM: To provide the contemporary use of upper-arm access for hemodialysis in Sweden using data from a unique national registry for hemodialysis access. METHODS: Data were retrieved from a nation-wide registry for dialysis access in Sweden, Dialysis Access Database (DiAD) on the use and function of specific access types with a focus on upper-arm accesses. RESULTS: The data demonstrate an increased use of upper-arm access, likely dependent on a changing patient population, with brachiocephalic arteriovenous fistula (AVF) as the most common access type...

BACKGROUND: Autogenous arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is the best vascular access (VA) for hemodialysis, but its creation is still a critical procedure. Physical examination, vascular mapping and doppler ultrasound (DUS) evaluation are recommended for AVF planning, but they can not provide direct indication on AVF outcome. We recently developed and validated in a clinical trial a patient-specific computational model to predict pre-operatively the blood flow volume (BFV) in AVF for different surgical configuration on the basis of demographic, clinical and DUS data...

Autogenous arteriovenous fistulae are the best method for prolonged, successful dialysis access. However, a substantial limitation of dialysis fistulae is their high primary failure rate, estimated to be as high as 70% for radiocephalic fistulae. Fistula maturation is influenced by demographic risk factors as well as anatomical barriers, the latter of which can be readily identified by noninvasive ultrasound imaging and physical examination. These barriers can be categorized as inflow problems (native arterial disease, arteriovenous anastomotic stenosis, and juxta-anastomotic stenosis) or outflow problems (proximal venous stenosis or collateral veins)...

Dialysis vascular access management in the United States changed significantly after National Kidney Foundation-Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative (NKF-KDOQI) clinical practice guidelines were first published in 1997. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service adopted these guidelines and in collaboration with the End-Stage Renal Disease Networks established the Fistula First Breakthrough Initiative (FFBI) in 2003 to improve the rate of arteriovenous fistula use over arteriovenous graft and central venous catheter in the dialysis population...

Problems related to hemodialysis access are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with end-stage renal disease. Physicians of all specialties who are involved in the placement and maintenance of vascular access for hemodialysis must have a long-term strategy for sequential placement of autogenous fistulas, transpositions, and prosthetic grafts to preserve access sites and to avoid long-term use of tunneled dialysis catheters. The Fistula First and KDOQI initiatives have provided strategies and algorithms for access placement in patients with chronic kidney disease...

Flows (Qa) of arteriovenous fistula (AVF) impact the dialysis adequacy in hemodialysis (HD) patients. However, data for different access flow levels on outcomes related to long-term dialysis patients, especially in Chinese patients, are limited. Herein, we performed an ambispective, mono-centric cohort study investigating the association between the AVF flows and inflammation, cardiovascular events and deaths in Chinese hemodialysis patients bearing a radio-cephalic fistula (AVF) from 2009 to 2015. Twenty-three patients (35...

INTRODUCTION: Adequate hemodialysis directly improves health. Puncturing an arteriovenous fistula (AVF) and the amount of blood recirculation greatly affect the quality of dialysis. Few studies have assessed the method to cannulate a fistula and its influence on efficiency of hemodialysis. METHODS: This prospective pilot study included 14 patients with end-stage renal failure receiving regular intermittent hemodialysis. Patients received three consecutive treatments with both needles directed upstream then three consecutive treatments with the venous needle directed upstream and the arterial needle directed downstream...

The exhaustion of superficial venous patrimony or reduced diameter of superficial veins usually prevent patients from having an arteriovenous fistula created. In such cases, utilizing deep vessels can be a more viable option as opposed to an arteriovenous graft. We describe a new approach for the brachio-brachial arteriovenous fistula creation technique. It consists of three small incisions, thus causing minimal surgical damage. We have found it to be better tolerated by the patients and well received by dialysis nurses...

Objective The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative (KDOQI) guidelines have recommended the use of arteriovenous fistula (AVF) at the initiation of dialysis. However, there are significant differences in the dialysis environments of Japan and the United States, and there are few people who receive hemodialysis via a central venous catheter (CVC) in Japan. The aim of the present study was to examine the association between the type of vascular access at the initiation of dialysis and the incidence of mortality in Japan...

AIM: Commencement of haemodialysis with an arteriovenous fistula (AVF) or arteriovenous graft (AVG) is associated with improved survival compared with commencement with a central venous catheter. In 2011-12, Queensland Health made incentive payments to renal units for early referred patients who commenced peritoneal dialysis (PD), or haemodialysis with an AVF/AVG. The aim of this study was to determine if pay-for-performance improved clinical care. METHODS: All patients who commenced dialysis in Australia between 2009 and 2014 and were registered with the Australia and New Zealand Dialysis and Transplant Registry (ANZDATA) were included...

BACKGROUND: To investigate the clinical characteristics, surgical interventions and outcomes of arteriovenous fistula (AVF) aneurysms, we retrospectively analyzed patients on regular hemodialysis (HD). METHODS: We conducted a cohort study of all patients with HD access who presented with AVF aneurysms and underwent operative procedures over a 11-year period. Patients' demographics, comorbidities, vascular access characteristics, management of aneurysms, complications and outcomes were analyzed...

OBJECTIVE: Arteriovenous grafts remain reliable substitutes for permanent hemodialysis access in patients without a suitable autogenous conduit. Advances in conduit design and endovascular management of access-related complications question the preference for synthetic conduits over biologic grafts in contemporary practice. In this study, we compared outcomes between a bovine carotid artery (BCA) biologic graft and expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) grafts for hemodialysis access in a recent cohort of patients...

OBJECTIVE: The Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative and Fistula First Breakthrough Initiative call for the indiscriminate creation of arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) over arteriovenous grafts (AVGs) without providing patient-specific criteria for vascular access selection. Although the U.S. AVF rate has increased dramatically, several reports have found that this singular focus on increasing AVFs has resulted in increased AVF nonmaturation/early failure and a high prevalence of catheter dependence...
