Abstract/OtherAbstract:
ABSTRACT: Dialysis associated steal syndrome (DASS) is relatively uncommon but constitutes a serious risk for patients undergoing vascular access operations. We report two patients with DASS where brachial artery vascular access inflow was revised to the proximal radial artery for arteriovenous fistula (AVF) inflow. DASS was resolved in both patients with the permanent resolution of symptoms, in addition to the healing of ulcerations and ischemia. Both AVFs were immediately functional and durable.
