How it works:
The endoAVF allows patients with renal failure a safe and minimally invasive way to get a new fistula for dialysis. By using smaller veins in the forearm, it provides patients an additional site for fistula creation which can prolong their overall dialysis access.
Dr. Qureshi’s interventional radiology team is excited to help bring this new procedure to patients in the Chicagoland area that didn’t have this option before. This procedure is completed as an outpatient and is a technique without surgery or general anesthesia and, using a device thinner than a pencil. Rush Copley and the Radiology team at Valley Imaging can now offer patients a safer, cheaper, and faster outpatient alternative to creating dialysis access.
