    Fatal vascular access hemorrhage is considered a rare complication of hemodialysis (HD). Ellingson et al. indicate otherwise, and their data suggest that it causes 0.4-1.6% of deaths in US HD patients. It is more common with grafts than fistulas, and many victims have had previous access...

    Ischemia of the hand may be secondary to angioaccess for chronic hemodialysis. A case of circulatory steal by a loop bovine graft in the forearm is described. The flow through the graft was decreased with an interposition graft, and a banding procedure was performed with excellent results....

    In 2007 the Maryland Medical Examiner noted a potential cluster of fatal vascular access hemorrhages among hemodialysis patients, many of whom died outside of a health-care setting. To examine the epidemiology of fatal vascular access hemorrhages, we conducted a retrospective case review in...

    Background: It is widely accepted that autogenous arteriovenous fistula (AVF) carries less morbidity and mortality compared to all other forms of vascular accesses in maintenance hemodialysis patients. There is paucity of data on vascular access from sub-Saharan Africa. The aim of this study was...

    Background. Urgent dialysis via a temporary central line may be impossible when all central veins are obstructed. Methods. We report 10 patients (7 males and 3 females) over a 5-year period who lost all venous access sites, due to multiple peripheral venous thromboses with a superior vena cava...

    Background: Arteriovenous (AV) access dysfunction is a common complication in hemodialysis patients. Markers of vascular calcification are associated with cardiovascular outcomes and mortality in this population, but their association with vascular access outcomes is unknown. In...

    The aim of this review was to highlight the most important complications of arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) for hemodialysis (HD). The quality of vascular access for HD should be suitable for repeated puncture and allow a high blood flow rate for high-efficiency dialysis with minimal...

    Background. Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a major complication of haemodialysis (HD), especially in patients with diabetes mellitus. Although previous reports have indicated that low-density lipoprotein apheresis (LDL-A) improves arteriosclerosis in PAD patients, the mechanism by which...
