DIALYSIS FISTULA SALVAGE
All patients receiving hemodialysis require a permanent method of connection to remove toxins from their bodies. For those receiving hemodialysis, a graft or fistula, which join an artery and vein together, provides access for blood to flow to a hemodialyzer, where toxic waste is removed.
However, the connection point can get clogged or dirty, and that can reduce the effectiveness of dialysis treatments and cause serious infections. Fortunately, the team at Unique Interventional Radiology can help patients keep their dialysis access points clean and clear.
