Abstract

The end-stage renal disease still holds significant health problems, getting, good, long term functioning vascular access for hemodialysis is our utmost value. Autogenous techniques are generally used for access. There are many surgical methods for getting autogenous access in hemodialysis patients. We aimed to assess the outcomes of the “oval-shaped anastomosis” technique used during the creation of arteriovenous fistulas in patients with advanced renal impairments. We randomly selected and retrospectively examined 52 patients on whom the “oval-shaped anastomosis” technique had been performed. Forty-nine (94%) patency rate in the 52 randomly selected patients on whom we used this mechanism in the first 6 months follow up. The patency and good functioning fistula created for hemodialysis is our priority in advance renal impairment. This technique has been particularly useful in stiff arteriosclerotic arteries, and it provides a more comfortable and clear anastomosis.
