Abstract

Hemodialysis access options become complex in long-term treatment for patients with renal disease, while awaiting renal transplantation (RT). Once upper extremity sites are exhausted, lower extremities are used. RT is preferably in the contralateral iliac fossa, rarely ipsilateral. In current literature, RT dysfunction secondary to the hemodynamic effects of an ipsilateral femoral arteriovenous graft (AVG) has been rarely described. To our knowledge, AVG ligation is the only published technique for hemodynamic correction of an ipsilateral AVG. We present a simple, potentially reversible endovascular approach to manage the hemodynamic effects of an AVG, without potentially permanently losing future AVG access.
