Abstract

Surgically created arteriovenous fistulas of the Brescia-Cimino type are commonly used for dialysis. When they fail, it can be a very difficult and time-consuming problem to manage surgically. The authors describe a simple method of evaluating and treating failing Bescia-Cimino fistulas in outpatients, involving a combination of cinefistulography, pressure measurements, and balloon angioplasty.
