AIM: To report our experience of the salvage of non-maturing Brescia-Cimino dialysis fistulae by percutaneous intervention. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-two patients (15 men, 68%; mean age: 58 years range: 42-79) with non-maturing Brescia-Cimino fistulae were treated by percutaneous angioplasty. Fistulae were created a mean of 2.7 months (range, 1-13 months) before intervention. The size of balloons used was 4mm for the arterial and anastomotic stenosis and 5mm or 6mm for the venous stenosis. RESULTS: On initial venography, venous stenosis (17 fistulae) or occlusions (five fistulae) were responsible for non-maturation. Stenoses or occlusions were adjacent to the arterial anastomoses in 18 patients and in the venous outflow (future puncture zone) in four patients. Additionally, a focal arterial stenosis was present in one and occlusion of the innominate vein in one other patient. Clinical success (initiation of dialysis) was achieved in 21/22 patients (95.5%). Twelve patients required 18 repeat angioplasties for recurrent stenosis. Two patients had small extravasation that required no further treatment. Over a follow-up period of 5-40 months (mean 14.6 months) 12 patients required repeat angioplasty. The mean interval between the initial angioplasty and subsequent intervention was 7.5 month (range 3-12 months). Primary patency after intervention at 6 and 12 months was 82 and 28%. Secondary patency at 6 and 12 months was 95 and 85%. CONCLUSION: Percutaneous intervention can effectively salvage non-maturing Brescia-Cimino fistulae. As repeat angioplasty is often necessary to maintain function, careful surveillance is necessary.
