Abstract

Angioplasty (PTA) has been proposed as first-line therapy for forearm AVF stenosisbecause of no loss of the venous capital and excellent success rate and patency. Stenosisrepair by a PTFE interposition graft (IG) shares the advantages of PTA of a minor or noreduction of cannulation area and excellent success rate, but concern has been raised of a high complication rate (stenosis, thrombosis, infection) associated with this type of device. We compared prospectively the outcome of stenosis repair by PTA vs IG (by 3-12 cm dialysis PTFE grafts) in mature forearm AVF
