- AV Gortex Graft
- AV Fistula
- Tunneled Hemodialysis Catheter
- Temporary Hemodialysis Catheter
AV grafts and AV fistulas are used to provide access for hemodialysis in patients with end stage renal disease. Grafts and fistulas serve as conduits from an artery to a vein. These conduits can become occluded or start functioning poorly during hemodialysis. When this happens, the graft or the native fistula can be re-opened or "tuned up" with minimally invasive techniques such as angioplasty or possibly stenting.. Hemodialysis access can also be obtained by using a long-term tunneled hemodialysis catheter or a temporary catheter. MIIGS physicians can place both types of catheters, as well manage any complication such as; catheter malfunction, clotting or slow flow.
Hemodialysis Access Management
The physicians at MIIGS have literally performed thousands of these procedures. Their expertise and proficiency at hemodialysis access management means you can resume dialysis in a timely manner, thereby decreasing any potential complications of end state renal disease.
