Impact of Cuffed, Expanded Polytetrafluoroethylene Dialysis Grafts on Graft Outlet Stenosis


The objective of this study was to determine prospectively the difference between the graft outlet strictures of a polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) graft with a cuff at the graft-vein anastomosis (Venaflo; Bard industries, Tempe, Ariz.) and that of the regular ePTFE graft (Stretch Gore-Tex; Gore, Flagstaff, Ariz.) placed for hemodialysis access.
