Research  > Vascular Access
The quality and reliability of your access can directly influence your health. We have conducted studies to determine if graft survival is related to geographic location, specifically renal network, and if placement of the access prior to dialysis has any positive benefits. Our studies show that, in 19941996, graft failure rates in the New York, Oklahoma, New Jersey, and Southern California renal networks were higher than failure rates in other renal networks. We also found that if your access is a simple fistula or synthetic graft and was placed 36 months before you started hemodialysis treatment your chances of long term survival are increased. More...
