PURPOSE Balloon angioplasty is a mainstay in the treatment of failing or thrombosed hemodialysis access grafts and fistulas. A sizable body of outcomes data exists concerning percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) in hemodialysis access, yet there is a relative paucity of technical information available, especially regarding dilation pressures. The aim of the present study was to compile such information, which can be critical to the choice of devices for PTA and to the design of future… CONTINUE READING
