Surgical revision to divert blood flow into the patent vein is sometimes possible to restore unobstructed flow. The result of this type of procedure is not yet well known. The purpose of this report is to describe our experience with outflow venovenostomy (VV) to salvage dysfunctional autogenous upper extremity arterial venous access (AVF) threatened by venous outflow obstruction in… CONTINUE READING
