1 FACTORS IN SUCCESSFUL OUTCOME IN RADIO-CEPHALIC AV FISTULA Dr. Venkateshwara Rao K, Dr. Aniruddha G, Dr.M. Ismail Dr. Sanjay Swain Dr. Sujata PatwardhanDr Jayesh V DhabaliaSeth G S Medical College & K.E.M. Hospital, Mumbai
2 IntroductionThe distal autogenous arteriovenous fistula is the first option for permanent access for haemodialysis , permits easy repeated access to the circulation .However the primary reported failure rate is 12% to 24%
3 AIMS AND OBJECTIVESTo assess the factors influencing the outcome of the fistula likequality of arteryquality of veinpatient on dialysisDM/HTNsexType of anastamosis
4 MATERIALS &METHODSRetrospective analysis of 80 cases of radio-cephalic A-V fistula we operated in the last 3 years.Age-15 to 60 yrsMale /female-3:1Left/ right-72/8
5 Materials & Methods Patients clinically assessed Venous –cephalic vein at wrist and armArterial – Allen’s testHand exercises in pre and post op periodIntra op –end-side / side-side
6 Materials & Methods hypertension and 14 patients diabetes mellitus. Associated co-morbidities:74 patients hadhypertension and 14 patients diabetes mellitus.Etiology-CRF/ESRD secondary to various causes.
7 Materials & Methods Other factors analysed- condition of vessel wall End-side/side –side anastamosisDM/HTNwhether patient started on dialysis prior to fistula.

10 RESULTS In our study predictors of poor out come were Poor quality of arteryPoor quality of veinPatient on prior dialysisPresence of diabetesSex, type of anastamosis does notseem to affect the outcome.
11 RESULTS There were total of 9 failures. 5 early-within 3 months 4 late-Good fistula function initially as evidenced by thrill.3 developed thrombosis with fistula closure after 6 m.1 patient developed fistula closure following proximal vein thrombosis.
12 RESULTS Of 9 patients who developed failure 8 were diabetics ,8had a narrow caliber vein,8 had hypertension.Other complicationswound infection- 3 patients.
13 DISCUSSIONPatients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) are dependent on long-term dialysis until transplantation is possible .There is consensus that the distal autogenous arteriovenous fistula is the first option for permanent access for haemodialysis (1).
14 DISCUSSIONIt was found that patients whose fistula was constructed before the start of dialysis had significantly better results than patients who were already on dialysis at the time of operationThese patients were more likely to have indwelling central venous catheters as well as multiple punctures of lower arm veins during their stay in intensive care units (2,3)
15 DISCUSSIONprevious studies have associated female sex (4, 5,6), and greater age(5) with poor outcome,however our study fails to show them as poor prognostic factors.
16 DISCUSSIONIn our study patients with poor quality vein &artery had higher chances of failure ,more so if the patient was a diabetic.
17 CONCLUSIONSThe quality of the vessels is the most important factor influencing the outcome of the fistula. If preoperative clinical evaluation of the wrist shows questionable vessel quality or caliber ,the surgeon must have a low threshold to consider a more proximal AV fistula particularly if the patient is diabetic.
18 CONCLUSIONSwe should consider creating fistula at an early stage, preferably before dialysis has started.
