Product Description

Other than introducing a foreign agent into the patient’s 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.

Report Summary


Select License Type

Arteriovenous (AV) is the most common method of access for hemodialysis treatment in patients that are suffering from end-stage renal disease (ESRD). AV access can be achieved via either AV fistula or AV graft. The fistula can be made in an extremity, typically in the forearm, where an artery and vein are surgically connected. This connection matures and strengthens over a period of four to six weeks. Native fistulae offer the best patency and durability, in addition to limiting complications such as post-dialysis bleeding and infection. A native fistula is the preferred access technique.
