Abstract: When a patient suffers from end stage renal disease, the vascular access becomes the lifeline to perform regular haemodialysis (HD) treatment. The recommended first choice is the surgically created native Arteriovenous Fistula (AVF). The AVF is exposed for repeated needling when connecting the dialysis machine several times a week. The AVF patency is limited caused by stenosis, aneurysm, and infections. This requires additive interventions, in-hospital care, and sometimes abandonment of the AVF.... more
