Transposed Arteriovenous Fistulae: Do the Results Justify the Effort?

Alik Farber et al. Semin Vasc Surg.

Abstract

Transposed arteriovenous fistulae have been utilized in clinical scenarios where simple arteriovenous fistulae have failed or their construction was not possible for anatomical reasons. Despite variability in published reports, transposed arteriovenous fistulae have acceptable patency rates and outperform prosthetic arteriovenous grafts in patency, frequency of intervention to maintain patency, and complication rates.
