INTRODUCTION Not all newly created arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) successfully mature and develop into a functioning access for hemodialysis. Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) and balloon-assisted maturation (BAM) have been utilized to either treat flow-limiting stenoses or to promote and accelerate maturation. We hypothesized that unusable upper(More)
Background. Hypercoagulable disorders can lead to deep vein thrombosis (DVT), arterial thrombosis or embolization, and early or recurrent bypass graft failure. The purpose of this study was to identify whether diabetes increased the likelihood of heparin-induced platelet factor 4 antibodies in at risk vascular patients. Methods. We reviewed clinical data on(More)
Primary care providers are often the first providers to evaluate a patient for peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Understanding the various presentations of PAD symptoms can prevent the disease from progressing to critical limb ischemia and eventual limb loss. This article provided the primary care provider with information needed to prevent limb loss and(More)
BACKGROUND Arteriovenous fistula (AVF) aneurysms (AVFAs) can lead to skin erosion, bleeding, difficult access while on hemodialysis, and poor cosmetic appearance. We reviewed our experience in treating patients with aneurysmal dilatation of their AVF. METHODS We reviewed clinical data of 48 patients (37 men; overall mean age, 55 years; range, 28-85 years)(More)
