Arteriovenous Fistula


Native Vascular Access and Artificial Vascular Access

Dialysis Access (AVF) Taipei, Taiwan


Feature of Arteriovenous Fistula surgery:


  • Ultrasound-guided dialysis catheter

  • Angiographic thrombectomy

  • Percutaneous thrombectomy

  • Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty

  • Endovascular stent graft

  • Distal revascularization-interval ligation (DRIL) and Proximalization of the arterial inflow (PAI)


New methods of artificial vascular access:


  • Venaflo

  • New permanent dialysis catheter

  • Carboflo

  • Endovascular stent graft

  • How











Q. When do I have to adopt arteriovenous fistula surgery?

The vascular access can be used after wound swelling resolves which is about 4  weeks postoperatively therefore It is better to have the surgery done earlier than later when a complete assessment with renal function deterioration and dialysis may be needed.


Q. Do I have to dialyze after the surgery?

It is not necessary for you to dialyze immediately after the surgery, it is better to be prepared.


Q. What are the common forms of arteriovenous fistulas?

  • Native Vascular Access (arteriovenous fistulas)

  • Artificial Vascular Access (Dialysis graft)

  • Permanent cuffed tunneled catheter such as Permcath and Hickman

  • Temporary dialysis catheter such as double lumen cath

  • This technology can be applied to reduce the invasiveness.


This technology can be applied to reduce the invasiveness.
