heal.abstractOne hundred ninety-three internal arteriovenous (A-V) fistulas were performed on patients with renal failure in the last eleven years. The A-V fistulas were divided on the basis of the following: side-to-side between the radial artery and cephalic vein (157 cases); end-to-side between the cephalic vein and radial artery (11 cases); end-to-end between the radial artery and cephalic vein (5 cases); A-V fistulas between the brachial artery and the cephalic, basilic or medial cubital vein (20 cases). The side-to-side A-V fistulas achieved an immediate patency in 88% of cases, lower than each of the other groups. However, the subsequent long-term failure rate was less than the other groups. In addition, satisfactory function was maintained at a high level (93%) during the follow-up period. The end-to-side and end-to-end A-V fistulas showed higher percentages of immediate patency (90% and 100%, respectively), although they were used more often on patients with vascular problems. Diabetic nephropathy was the main factor associated with thrombosis of A-V fistulas.en
