BACKGROUND The autologous arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is the accepted gold standard mode of repeated vascular access for hemodialysis in terms of access longevity, patient morbidity, and health care costs. This review assesses the current evidence supporting the role of various patient and surgeon factors on AVF patency. METHODS The literature was searched to identify the current evidence available for patient characteristics, methods of AVF planning, and anatomic factors that may affect… CONTINUE READING
