Covered stents or stent grafts are exciting new products with multiple applications for patients with vascular disease, including hemodialysis access-related complications. Although most of the current uses of stent grafts in these settings are "off-label" (ie, not approved by the US Food and Drug Administration) several studies are currently underway to provide the necessary data to support their application. It is clear that stent grafts provide a rapid, effective means for endovascular repair of ruptured access vessels. The commercially available devices and their current applications for treating access-related complications, including aneurysms/pseudoaneurysms, venous outflow stenoses, cephalic arch lesions, ruptures, and diffuse access stenoses, will be reviewed in this article. Available data are reported along with our current clinical practice and algorithms.
