abstract

  • Grafts placed predialysis have primary failure rates and cumulative survival similar to those placed after starting dialysis therapy. However, postdialysis graft placement is associated with prolonged catheter dependence and frequent bacteremia. Predialysis graft placement may decrease catheter dependence and bacteremia in selected patients.
