Abstract

Patients with prolonged history of central venous catheters can develop central venous occlusion. We report the creation of an axillary artery to right atrial graft using the femoropopliteal vein (FPV) for dialysis access in a patient with end-stage renal disease on hemodialysis with history of central venous occlusion. The patient had previously developed steal syndrome following a right brachial artery to right atrial polytetrafluoroethylene graft requiring revision to a left axillary artery inflow which subsequently thrombosed. This is the first report of using an autologous FPV conduit to the right atrium for dialysis.
