Establishing patient-specific criteria for selecting the optimal upper extremity vascular access procedure
Arteriovenous Shunt, Surgical
Blood Vessel Prosthesis Implantation
The results of this study indicate that patient-specific situations exist wherein AVG is as appropriate as or more appropriate than AVF. These results provide patient-specific recommendations for clinicians to optimize vascular access selection criteria, to standardize care, and to inform payers and policy. Indeterminate scenarios will guide future research.
