<sec id="st1"><title>ABSTRACT</title> <bold><italic>Purpose:</italic></bold> The purpose of this article is to report our experience with drug-eluting balloons for the treatment of juxta-anastomotic stenoses of failing radiocephalic hemodialytic arteriovenous shunt and to evaluate the primary and secondary patency (PP and SP). <bold><italic>Methods:</italic></bold> After approval by the local hospital's Ethical and Scientific Review Board, 26 consecutive patients with juxta-anastomotic stenosis of radiocephalic hemodialytic shunt were treated with angioplasty with drug-eluting balloon. The main objective was to evaluate PP defined, in accordance with the Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative recommendation, as the absence of dysfunction of the vascular access, patent lesion or residual stenosis <30% and no need for further reintervention of the target lesion (TL). PP and SP at 6, 12 and 24 months were evaluated, with echo color doppler and phlebography, for both arteriovenous fistulae, defined as absolute, and TL. <bold><italic>Results:</italic></bold> Immediate postprocedural technical and clinical success was 100% for all the patients; we had only one technical failure in repeated treatments. At 6 months the absolute and TL PP was 96.1%; at 12 months the absolute PP was 81.8%, TL PP 90.9%, absolute SP 95.4%, TL SP 100%; at 24 months the absolute and TL PP was 57.8%; absolute and TL SP 94.7%; only one arteriovenous fistula was lost during the period. <bold><italic>Conclusions:</italic></bold> The use of drug-eluting balloons, after standard angioplasty, improves primary patency and decreases reinterventions of TL in juxta-anastomotic stenoses of failing native dialytic arteriovenous shunts. </sec>
