Surgery is an established treatment for stenosed and thrombosed forearm arteriovenous fistulae (AVFs), but the literature concerning its outcome is limited. We report a 6-yr experience of the surgical repair of stenosis in patent and thrombosed forearm AVFs, and compare the outcome of two techniques, proximal neo-anastomosis (NEO) vs. replacement of the stenosed segment with a short PTFE interposition graft (Jump graft (JG)).

Abstract

Surgery is an established treatment for stenosed and thrombosed forearm arteriovenous fistulae (AVFs), but the literature concerning its outcome is limited. We report a 6-yr experience of the surgical repair of stenosis in patent and thrombosed forearm AVFs, and compare the outcome of two techniques, proximal neo-anastomosis (NEO) vs. replacement of the stenosed segment with a short PTFE interposition graft (Jump graft (JG)).
