Title: The impact of access blood flow surveillance on reduction of thrombosis in native arteriovenous fistula: a randomized clinical trial.
Issue Date: Jan-2016
Citation: J Vasc Access.;(17)1:13-9
Abstract: The usefulness of access blood flow (QA) measurement is an ongoing controversy. Although all vascular access (VA) clinical guidelines recommend monitoring and surveillance protocols to prevent VA thrombosis, randomized clinical trials (RCTs) have failed to consistently show the benefits of QA-based surveillance protocols. We present a 3-year follow-up multicenter, prospective, open-label, controlled RCT, to evaluate the usefulness of QA measurement using Doppler ultrasound (DU) and ultrasound dilution method (UDM), in a prevalent hemodialysis population with native arteriovenous fistula (AVF).
