Angiography has been shown to play an important role in the process of gaining access to vessels for hemodialysis. Two major contributions of angiography are the preoperative evaluation of vessels and the detection of underlying causes for shunt or fistula dysfunction. Specific examples of these, and other, applications of angiography to hemodialysis arc presented.

    Although arterialovenous fistulae (AVF) is considered to be vital for chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients, but they may cause complications and problems. For instance they may fail soon after their creation. The most important cause of failure in these cases is intrafistula thrombus formation....
