1. Summary

Abstract for the general public

Functional vascular access is the lifeline for patients requiring haemodialysis. Two common problems that occur with fistulae are narrowing of the blood vessel/s (stenosis), and blood clots blocking the blood flow (thrombosis). The treatment for stenosis involves opening up the vessel with a balloon - this is called percutaneous transluminal angioplasty. However stenosis commonly reoccurs.

This study aims to look at data from Cairns Base Hospital and The Townsville hospital renal units to identify predictors of restenosis after angioplasty of dysfunctional arteriovenous fistulae.
