Other than introducing a foreign agent into the patients bod, the AV graft, access type is comparable to AV fistula in many ways. Companies are currently working on new technologies for AV graft which could solve many of the issues associated with currently available AV grafts. Devices in development are polyurethane grafts that incorporate a biomimetic scaffold into the structure, which can allow for endothelial cell ingrowth.
AV grafts continue to be commonly used in the United States, despite the alternative options. AV grafts have the advantage of maturing in just two weeks, thus acting as a viable option for obese patients lacking adequate fistulae as well as for those patients whose native fistulae fail to mature. The material of choice for AV grafts is polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE), which is also used in small diameter surgical grafts.
