June Wash U Nephrology Webisode - Clinical Exam of Hemodialysis Vascular Access

The June web episode features a special guest who was visiting St. Louis - Dr. Dirk Hentschel, Assistant Prrofessor and Director of Interventional Nephrology at Brigham and Women's/Harvard Medical School.  Follow him on Twitter - @dialysisaccess1

This is the first of a two part web series.  In this video we go to the chairside of 2 hemodialysis patients to examine their vascular access.  The next video will be a more formal didactic presentation discussing many of the issues that will be brought up in this introduction.  Enjoy!

Hi, great video thanks for the information. Two questions:

- In case of having a fistula that takes a lot of time to coagulate maybe for a narrowing a the formation of aneurisms, can we make that maneuver of pressing the inflow segmente to reduce inflow and help to coagulate faster? and if so, hoy much time can we press that inflow to couse no damage to the fistula.

- In case of making a surgery procedure to reduce the inflow, hoy much time do we have to wait to use that fistula again?
