Most Effective Access to the Bloodstream

There are three types of vascular access for dialysis. Vascular access is where your blood is removed and returned during dialysis. There three types are an arteriovenous (AV) fistula, an arteriovenous (AV) graft, and a venous catheter. The AV fistula is considered the best long-term access because there is a reduced chance of infection, it allows better blood flow, and it lasts a long time.

Higher fistula rates are better.

Catheters are not ideal for permanent vascular access because they can become infected, clog, and cause veins to narrow. Lower percentage of adults with long term catheter use is better.
