Dialysis fistulas and cardiac failure.

PMID:  696419     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A haemodialysis fistula may be a factor in the development of cardiac failure, and surgical reduction of fistula blood flow can improve the condition. We have investigated 6 patients with dialysis fistulas and closed the fistula in one of them, with marked improvement of cardiac failure. It is unlikely that a peripheral dialysis fistula can cause cardiac failure by itself, but it may be a contributing factor when the cardiac reserve is reduced due to other causes.
