Diagnostic Testing

Dialysis Access Fistula/Graft

Once a graft has been placed, access is sometimes difficult.  When this happens your physician will refer you for an ultrasound on the graft to see if a clot has obstructed flow. 

Indications for this exam:  Acute swelling and possible redness of the arm where a graft has been placed and dialysis access has recently been attempted or performed.   Swelling of the arm is normal within the first 10 weeks after a graft has been placed.
