Abstract

The number of ambulatory dialysis patients is increasing each year with a concomitant rise in extremity access fistulas and grafts. The anatomic location of these fistulas makes them particularly susceptible to traumatic occurrences. Management of traumatic occlusion of these fistulas becomes a critical issue in allowing continuing dialysis in these patients. Management of two such patients is presented.
