Quick, Effective Outpatient Treatment for Varicose Veins


Hemodialysis, also known as hemodialysis (he-moe-die-AL-uh-sis), is a treatment option for advanced kidney failure that enables you to maintain an active lifestyle despite your failing kidneys. When your kidneys are no longer functioning properly to filter wastes, salts, and liquids from your blood, you may need hemodialysis.

Arteriovenous or AV Fistula

The preparation of the vascular access, the location on your body from which blood is drawn and returned during dialysis, is a crucial step before beginning regular hemodialysis sessions. A path for blood to travel from your body to the dialyzer for cleaning before returning to your body is provided by the dialysis access. The vascular access needs to allow your blood to flow at the rate prescribed by your doctor in order to maximise the volume of blood cleaned during hemodialysis treatments. The ideal time to put a vascular access is weeks or months before you begin dialysis. Having the vascular access placed early will give it enough time to grow and recover. An arteriovenous (AV) fistula, an AV graft, and a venous catheter are the three basic types of vascular access for hemodialysis.

Arteriovenous (AV) graft for hemodialysis

A soft plastic tube is used to join an artery and a vein to form an arteriovenous (AV) graft. Hemodialysis is carried out by inserting one needle into the artery side and one into the venous side of the graft after it has healed. Increased blood flow is made possible by the transplant.

Venous Catheter

The third kind of hemodialysis access a surgeon can create is a venous catheter. The vein in your neck, chest, or leg close to your groyne is used to implant the catheter. Because a venous catheter can cause so many problems, this is only a short-term access solution. When a patient needs hemodialysis before an AV fistula or graft has time to heal adequately, surgeons generally insert a catheter for hemodialysis access.
