The incidence of symptomatic DASS requiring treatment is 1-8%. The etiology is iatrogenic and symptoms are quite debilitating. Banding of the access inflow has largely been abandoned because of the inherent problem with balancing fistula flow with distal flow complicated by a high incidence of… CONTINUE READING
