The article offers information on the clinical trial conducted on effective use of stent grafts over balloon angioplasty in the treatment of patients with hemodialysis. The trial studied 190 patients within the age group of 18-90 years with renal disease requiring hemodialysis. They were treated with one expanded stent graft after a balloon angioplasty. The patients were followed up after six months and was found that patients with stent grafts were at lower risk of having restenosis.
