Aspirational Mechanical Thrombectomy in AVF

Over the last few years, we have seen emerging technology aimed at the management of AVF thrombosis. Some have been developed from cardiac and neuro-intervention methods and techniques.
The following slides demonstrate some of these systems, along with a case using one of these devises to remove AVF clot. The aim is to give clinicians insight to an alternative management and to raise constructive discussions on the future of Thrombectomy methods.


    Great presentation Bella!
    Just a short question: Could you please explain your vessel access algorithm? D

    Thank you Konstantinos! I think I probably should create some images and scenarios to explain this better. Bare with me and I will answer this properly 🙂

    Hi.Thanks for the nice presentation
    I had a patient with long segment thrombosis of cephalic vein, approx 3 cm distal to brachio cephalic fistula. There was an acute thrombus with aneurysmal dilation of the cephalic vein proximally with decreased calibre of the vein and internal thrombus extending to the cephalic _ subclavian junction. What would he your approach in such patients.
