Forearm radiocephalic fistula for dialysis

Krzysztof Bojakowski, Piotr Andziak
Acta Angiologica 2011;17(2):117-140.


Arteriovenous fistula created from native vessels in the forearm are renowned as the best primary vascular access for haemodialysis. Despite best outcomes for fistula patency among all the access routes for dialysis, the procedure of forearm fistula creation carries a significant risk of complications including failure of spontaneous maturation, stenoses, or thrombosis. This publication presents principles of patient qualification for forearm fistula creation, preoperative workup, and postoperative care.
