Arteriovenous Fistula with Graft Surgery in Lagos
An AV fistula is a surgically formed irregular association between an artery and a vein that aids in haemodialysis treatment. A shunt graft is used in these cases to help with the procedure.
Unfortunately, graft malfunction, also known as shunt failure, occurs sometimes. If you have this problem, your doctor can prescribe endovascular care. The aim of this minimally invasive operation is to prevent the fistula from narrowing and to clear any shunt blockages, such as blood clots.
The procedure’s techniques are determined by the type of lesion and its position.
