Summary

Scientific title

A comparison of Argyle Anti-Reflux plastic cannulae and traditional steel needle use in a cohort of haemodialysis patients

Abstract for the general public

When kidney patients in Australia go for their haemodialysis sessions, nurses traditionally use metal needles to access their fistula. There is a new plastic needle currently being market, and we have conducted a short study to see if this could be a safe method for haemodialysis in the future.
