TUTORIAL VIDEO: Venous arterialization using conventional “off-the-shelf” devices

Although we favor a more distal location of the AVF to circumvent the need to use covered stent extensions to destroy the valves and avoid bleeding off venous flow via collaterals, sometimes (e.g. due to extreme vessel calcification) it is unavoidable to have to look for a more proximal inflow. The versatility of the VAST maneuver allows to perform a proximal DVA at the origin of the PT artery with conventional off-the-shelf devices.”

    Amazing! Congratulations on thinking of a simple technique. I’m a fan of open venous arterialization and this is a promising technique!

    IHow did u get the arterial snare out of the sheat with the back side of the wire? back side of the wire is very thougt to externalize?
