Cephalic arch lesions are common cause for dysfunction of brachiocephalic arteriovenous fistulas. For lesions resistant or not amenable to endovascular interventions, we used a term "cephalic arch occlusive lesions" (CAO) that included cephalic arch total occlusion, frequently recurrent stenosis (requiring angioplasty in <3-month intervals), high-grade elastic stenosis (residual stenosis >50% after angioplasty), or other lesions not amenable to endovascular interventions. Herein, we report 40… CONTINUE READING
