<sec id="st1"><title>ABSTRACT</title> <bold><italic>Introduction:</italic></bold> Loss of arteriovenous fistula as access for hemodialysis leads to significant morbidity and increased mortality risk. <bold><italic>Methods:</italic></bold> Maintenance of this access is of paramount importance and we describe a case of a patient with a functioning radiocephalic fistula with associated arm swelling due to poor narrow caliber venous drainage above the elbow but with normal central veins. <bold><italic>Results:</italic></bold> A hybrid vascular graft was anastomosed to the upper extent of the fistula and the nitonol stent section introduced into the patent axillary vein. <bold><italic>Conclusion:</italic></bold> The described method led to resolution of symptoms and arm swelling. The described method allowed the continued use of a mature fistula. </sec>
