The authors were not able to identify any studies in which AVFs influenced activities of daily living behaviors involving the arms, either during hemodialysis or non-dialysis times, hence their interest to conduct this study.
Patients had similar ease of arm position as of brachiocephalic AVF during dialysis.
Late re-exploration was done for 19 AVFs. Out of these 19, 4 of them required creation of new fistula at another site.
Angioplasty for stenosis of AVFs was, for the first time, reported in 1981 [5].
incorrectly cited our case report [2] as scientific evidence the literature contains "numerous prior cases of vertebral AVFs report induction by chiropractic manipulation." Our case report made no such connection with spinal manipulation.
There were differences in the age of the participants and the age of the AVFs (older in the plastic cannulae cohort) and the co-morbidities of the patients (more in the plastic cannulae cohort), which could have affected the cannulation success rates of in the plastic cannulae cohort.
As for AVF or AVM from other body districts, it is crucial to recognize and embolize all the arterious feeders; typically uterine AVFs do not present with extrauterine involvement and are fed only by uterine arteries [1].
Stenosed vein segments were harvested from the primary AVFs just distal to the anastomosis at the time of surgical revision in 4 patients.
Clinical practice guidelines recommend the arteriovenous fistula (AVF) as the preferred form of dialysis access owing to good long-term patency and a low incidence of complications [1].
Despite the obvious scarcity of ICU resources, there is a paucity of literature focusing strictly on AVFs associated with pregnant women admitted to ICUs, especially on the African continent.
International guidelines recommend an arterio-venous fistula (AVF) access in terms of access longevity and improved morbidity and mortality outcomes compared to central venous catheters (CVC) (NKF-KDOQI, 2006).
The study included 150 patients of CRF who met the predecided inclusion criteria, in whom we have made different types of AVFs. The mean age of the patients was 46.5 ([+ or -] 13.5) years, with a median of 47 years and a range of 18 to 70 years.
