BACKGROUND Radial artery diameter on preoperative ultrasound has previously been investigated as a risk factor for the primary patency rate of arteriovenous fistulas. However, the cutoff values for long-term secondary patency rates have not been reported in detail. The present study verified the cutoff values that predict long-term secondary patency. METHODS This was a single-center retrospective study. Among the arteriovenous fistula operations performed at our hospital from March 2008 to… CONTINUE READING
