BACKGROUND Hemodialysis vascular access dysfunction currently is a huge clinical problem. Although arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) are the preferred form of permanent dialysis access, they continue to have significant problems with early AVF failure. Although inadequate dilatation of the venous segment was believed to have a role in early AVF failure, the exact pathogenesis of early AVF failure is unknown despite the magnitude of the clinical problem.
