ABSTRACT
In a small percentage of cases, conventional a-v fistulae of the Bresciae-Cimino type fail to provide long-term access facilities for chronic hemodialysis. When homologous venous interposition grafts are not available, the surgeon is forced to seek foreign interposition material. In three instances woven dacron arterio-venous interposition grafts were successfully constructed in the thigh, and uneventful hemodialysis was accomplished in all 3 patients.

    Fluid removal during HD is frequently associated with acute hypotension due to insufficient mobilization of extravascular fluid and subsequent hypovolemia. Large variability in vascular refilling makes dialysis therapy difficult and requires a better understanding of fluid distribution in the...

    The use of the Bovine artegraft for creation of arteriovenous fistulas in the hemodialysis patient was first carried out in the midsummer of 1971. Since that time, there has been considerable material reported in the use of this substitute as an access for hemodialysis. In this article...
