Anastomotic intimal hyperplasia caused by unphysiological hemodynamics is generally accepted as a reason for dialysis access graft occlusion. Optimizing the venous anastomosis can improve the patency rate of arteriovenous grafts. The purpose of this study was to examine, evaluate, and characterize the local hemodynamics and, in particular, the wall shear stresses in conventional venous end-to-side anastomosis and in patch form anastomosis (Venaflo) by three-dimensional computational fluid… CONTINUE READING
