Arteriovenous fistula (AVF) via the wrist or elbow has typically been the preferred route for dialysis through surgery.
In this video Dr Nicholas Inston (Queen Elizabeth Hospital, UK), clinical service lead in renal surgery, discusses the latest results from a study which examined the effects and benefits of endoAVF creation using the WavelinQ™ 4F device. This device is used in the cutting and coagulation of blood vessel tissue in the peripheral vasculature for the creation of an AVF used for hemodialysis and offers a minimally-invasive treatment alternative via the mid-forearm.
