- A Preliminary Experience with the Human Homologous Vein Graft for Vascular Access. Gecim, I. E.; Ward, R. G.; Bakran, A.; Aikawa, A.; Sells, R. A. // Vascular Surgery;Sep/Oct1996, Vol. 30 Issue 5, p395
In a preliminary study, 38 preserved human homologous saphenous vein grafts were used for secondary vascular access in 36 chronic hemodialysis patients. Cumulative one-year patency was 67%. Twelve grafts failed, 10 owing to thrombosis and 2 owing to infection. Overall complication rate,...
