Dialysis Access Procedure- AV Fistula

It requires planning because AV Fistula takes some time after surgery to develop. In rare cases, this time can stretch up to 24 months.

All patients with chronic kidney dysfunction who require long-term dialysis need a well functioning AV fistula during dialysis. An AV (Arterio-Venous) fistula is a connection created between an artery (fast blood flow) and a vein (normally having slow blood flow) through surgery. The vascular specialist chooses the most appropriate site as per the size of the artery and vein and previous injections. Usually, sites in the wrist, forearm, and elbow are common.

Having vast experience in complex AV Fistula procedures, Dr. Hiten Patel can provide the best quality results. Many patients have got satisfactory results in Dialysis Access Procedure to date.
