Daily hemodialysis has been associated with surrogate markers of improved survival among hemodialysis patients. A potential disadvantage of daily hemodialysis is that frequent vascular access cannulations may affect long-term vascular access patency. The study design was a 4-year, nonrandomized, contemporary control, prospective study of 77 subjects in either 3-h daily hemodialysis (six 3-h dialysis treatments weekly; n = 26) or conventional dialysis (three 4-h dialysis treatments weekly; n = 51). Outcomes of interest were vascular access procedures (fistulagram, thrombectomy and access revision). Total access procedures (fistulagram, thrombectomy and access revision) were 543.2 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 432.9, 673.0) per 1000 person-years in the conventional dialysis group vs. 400.8 (95% CI: 270.2, 572.4) per 1000 person-years in the daily hemodialysis dialysis group (incidence rate ratio = 0.74 with 95% CI: from 0.40 to 1.36, P = 0.33), after adjusting for age, gender, diabetes status, serum phosphorus, hemoglobin level and erythropoietin dose, there was no significant differences in incidence rate of total access procedures (P-value > 0.05). There was no difference in time to first access revision between the daily dialysis and the conventional dialysis groups after adjustment for covariates (hazard ratio = 0.99 95% CI: 0.42, 2.36, P = 0.96). Daily hemodialysis is not associated with increased vascular access complications, or increased vascular access failure rates.
