Risk factors for early failure of native arteriovenous fistulas

Published in Nephron. Clinical practice. 2005, vol. 101, no. 1, p. c39-44
Abstract Current guidelines recommend native arteriovenous fistulas (AVF) as the vascular access of choice for hemodialysis on account of the lower incidence of complications. However, this kind of vascular access has a high rate of early failure (early thrombosis or non-maturation). Our aim was to examine whether clear risk factors for early AVF failure could be identified in our patients.
