Dialysis access.


Although hemodialysis access procedures are considered the most common vascular procedures performed by either general or vascular surgeons, there is a paucity of level-one evidence in the literature. Randomized controlled trials are limited, and most of these studies have small sample sizes compared with other areas of vascular surgery, that is, carotid or aneurysm studies. We summarize the results of the world's literature for arteriovenous access in table format as a tool for those specialists managing patients with arteriovenous access procedures.
