What Is Dialysis Access Intervention?
Dialysis Access Intervention is a range of minimally invasive procedures that create and maintain functional access points for patients who require dialysis treatment, empowering dialysis patients with optimal access to life-sustaining treatment. Dialysis is a life-saving procedure used to filter and purify the blood when the kidneys are no longer able to perform this function effectively. It is a critical treatment for individuals with kidney failure or severe kidney dysfunction. During dialysis, blood is removed from the body through an access point, cleansed of waste products and excess fluids using a dialysis machine, and then returned to the body. The access point serves as a connection between the patient's bloodstream and the dialysis machine. To ensure successful and efficient dialysis, a reliable and functional access is crucial.

Exploring Dialysis Access Treatment Options
Having a reliable dialysis access is essential for successful treatments. At NEPA Vascular Institute, we offer a variety of Dialysis Access Interventions to suit each patient's specific needs:
Fistula: An arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is a direct connection surgically created between an artery and a vein, usually in the arm. This procedure allows for a high-flow access point, reducing complications and increasing longevity.
Grafts: For patients with small or weak veins, an arteriovenous graft (AVG) may be a suitable alternative to a fistula. A graft is a synthetic tube surgically placed between an artery and a vein, providing a reliable access point for dialysis.
Percutaneous Fistula: A cutting-edge option for access creation, percutaneous fistula involves a minimally invasive procedure using image-guided techniques to connect an artery and vein. This innovative approach can be a suitable alternative to traditional surgical methods, offering faster recovery and fewer complications.
