    Background: Vascular access is the key in successful management of chronic haemodialysis (HD) patients. Though native arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is considered the access of choice, many patients in our country initiate haemodialysis through central venous catheter (CVC). There is paucity of...

    Prosthetic arteriovenous grafts have an inferior patency rate and greater morbidity than those with autogenous vessels and are therefore considered as secondary or tertiary vascular access for hemodialysis in patients with fatigued or unsuitable superficial arm veins. Prior access planning in...

    Effective haemodialysis (HD) requires a reliable vascular access (VA). Clinical practice guidelines strongly recommend the arteriovenous fistula (AVF) as the preferred VA in HD patients. The creation of an AVF should be promoted in all eligible patients who choose HD, as it improves outcomes and...

    Background. Arteriole dialysis access may be lost due to stenosis and thrombosis. Patency may be restored by thrombectomy or thrombolysis, but this is often not undertaken when the presentation is delayed. The success rate of delayed intervention is largely unknown. Methods. In this...

    Hemodialysis patient survival is dependent on the availability of a reliable vascular access. In clinical practice, procedures for vascular access cannulation vary from clinic to clinic. We investigated the impact of cannulation technique on arteriovenous fistula and graft survival. Based on an...

    Background: Vascular accesses (especially polytetrafluoroethylene grafts) with a permanently low flow (Qa <600 ml/min) are prone to thrombosis and thus have short patency. The reason for a permanently low flow is usually medial calcinosis of the inflow artery in diabetics. We retrospectively...

  • Scribner shunt.  // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary;2005, p1961 

    A definition of the term "Scribner shunt" is presented. It refers to a tube, usually made of synthetic material, which is used to connect an artery to a vein. It is used in patients requiring frequent venipuncture as in hemodialysis.

    March 9, 1960, was a milestone marker in end stage renal disease history - the date when a patient received the very first arteriovenous Scribner shunt. This began the era of maintenance or chronic hemodialysis. With long-term dialysis a reality, various new types of vascular access were...
