Jayachander K, Balaraman V

Abstract :

Objective: To study the outcome of basilic vein arteriovenous fistula for hemodialysis access . Methods: It’s a retrospective study, of the end stage renal disease patients, who underwent autogenous arteriovenous fistula surgeries for hemodialysis using basilic vein ,during the period 2016 to 2017 at Government Kilpauk Medical College Hospital,Chennai,India.Total of 228  patients ,Male 163 ( 71.50%) and Female 65(28.50%)  were enrolled in this study.Arteriovenous graft and permanent cuffed catheter procedures were excluded .The age group  were between 14 years  to 70years.The fistula maturation was assessed by clinical examination of quality of thrill and color doppler correlation.Results:Out of the total 228 arteriovenous fistula,radiocephalic fistula 109 (47.80 %), achiocephalic fistula99 ( 43.42 %) andbasilic vein fistula consisting both radiobasilic and achiobasilic fistula20 ( 8.77%). Basilic vein fistula primary patency rateis 80% at one year.Conclusion: Basilic vein arteriovenous fistula matures quickly with good primary patency rate ,and  should be considered as a third option for  autogenous arteriovenous fistula ,if radiocephalic and achiocephalic  fistula is not feasible or exhausted.
