At Yale-New Haven, we offer services that help assure that a patient has a successful dialysis treatment, either through peripheral access or a catheter. Our goal is to maintain good access for all patients.
Our nephrologists are experts at monitoring dialysis access, having researched and performed the latest advancements. Once a clinically significant stenosis is identified, most patients' first line of therapy is endovascular treatment.
Vascular surgeons at Yale-New Haven perform the following hemodialysis procedures:
- High-pressure angioplasty balloons
- Cutting balloons
- Covered vascular stents
