Background: Arteriovenous fistula is an important method for hemodialysis and prediction of fistula function and failure rate and access is crucial. This study was performed to determine the association between Doppler ultrasonography findings with function and failure and access rate of fistula.
Methods: In this observational comparative cross-sectional study, out of 108 patients requiring fistula who had no appropriate condition, 61 consecutive patients with chronic renal failure under hemodialysis were enrolled and Doppler ultrasonography findings were determined and the association with failure and access rate was assessed.
Results: In this study, thrill was present in 96.7%. The outcome was good in 92.2%. There was no association between Doppler ultrasonography findings with function and failure and access rate of fistula (p> 0.05).
Conclusion: Finally, according to the obtained results, it may be concluded that Doppler ultrasonography is useful to improve the function, reduce the failure and increase the access rate of fistula.
