Clinical experience with office-based duplex-guided balloon-assisted maturation of arteriovenous fistulas for hemodialysis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND To examine the effect of office-based duplex-guided balloon-assisted maturation (DG-BAM) on arteriovenous fistula (AVF), we retrospectively analyzed our experience. METHODS Over the past 10 months, we performed 185 DG-BAMs (range, 1-8 procedures; mean, 3.7) in 45 patients (29 male, 16 female; mean age, 68.2 ± 12.8 years) with 31 radial-cephalic… (More)
