The following procedures are performed in our center in support of optimum dialysis access health:

  • Vessel Mapping

  • Angiogram

  • Angioplasty

  • Thrombectomy (declot)

  • Endovascular Stent Placement

  • Hemodialysis Catheter insertion, exchange, removal and repair

Early detection and timely resolution of access dysfunction are critical to access preservation.  Timely resolution leads to fewer missed dialysis treatments and a lower frequency of hospitalization.  The most common dialysis access problem is

the narrowing of the access or the blood vessel attached to it.  This narrowing, called stenosis, can lead to clotting of the access.  If this happens, dialysis treatments will not be effective and the access may eventually stop flowing.
