Coronal mode ultrasound guided hemodialysis cannulation: A pilot randomized comparison with standard cannulation technique.

BACKGROUND Infiltrations from cannulation result in significant morbidity including loss of hemodialysis (HD) vascular access (VA). Cannulation is dependent on personnel skill and VA characteristics. Surface marking of VA lacks real-time information and traditional ultrasound (US) devices are large, expensive, requiring skilled operators. Sonic Window… CONTINUE READING
