Purpose: To retrospectively evaluate the patency of Wallstents placed at the venous anastomosis of polytetraflouroethylene (PTFE) hemodialysis grafts to preserve function following angioplasty-induced rupture. Methods: The charts of all patients who underwent percutaneous angioplasty of functioning hemodialysis PTFE grafts between September 1997 and September 2001 were retrospectively reviewed. A total of 414 angioplasties were performed. Nine cases of rupture at the venous anastomosis managed… CONTINUE READING
