abstract

  • The surgical creation of an autogenous fistula is the vascular access of choice for delivery of hemodialysis. However, it is prone to relatively high rates of maturation failure, stenosis and thrombosis. Most of these problems can be attributed to the surgical creation itself. Percutaneous or endovascular creation of an autogenous fistula offers the possibility of overcoming some of these problems.
