Vascular Access Center Procedures
The Vascular Access Centers are dedicated to caring and maintaining your dialysis access. Patients on dialysis understand the importance of blood to be easily taken from a reliable access point. At local Vascular Access Centers, interventional nephrologists perform outpatient procedures to improve access performance. The ideal hemodialysis access is an artery to vein shunt that delivers high blood flow, easy cannulation.
Most fistula failures or graft failures are caused by a narrowing of the blood vessel. If we catch the problem in time, we may be able to keep the access open and working longer.
