The authors consolidated their findings into four broad categories of concerns: limited activities when motor function is diminished because of the AVF, even without compression of the arm; concerns about physical appearance; activities with the capacity to compress or obstruct blood flow, fearing concern for AVF obstruction; and findings having to do with altered sensation.
Kakaei et al studied the results of Brachiobasilic AVF relocation in 27 patients.
"If there is a clinical concern about AVF maturation after surgery, a six-week ultrasound can help the clinician assess the likelihood of AVF maturation," Robbin said in a statement.
Willingly sacrificing comfort to address community-afflicting problems that normal institutions have failed to solve, the AVF conveys motivations that harmonize with repeated and reinforced narratives of superheroism.
Forty-four patients without AVF thrombosis (26 females and 18 males) and 37 patients with AVF thrombosis (14 females and 23 males) were enrolled in this study.

Patients with end-stage renal disease rely on hemodialysis, which requires a vascular access providing high blood flow rates preferably achieved through an AVF conduit [1].
Clinical practice guidelines recommend the arteriovenous fistula (AVF) as the preferred form of dialysis access owing to good long-term patency and a low incidence of complications [1].
