How the GORE® VIABAHN® Endoprosthesis changed the natural history of a rapidly failing arteriovenous (AV) access circuit.

Challenge

  • Severe stenosis across the elbow of a 78-year-old patient
  • A rapidly failing forearm loop graft that thrombosed three times over a 40-day period
  • The graft worked well for nearly two years before the first of the three thrombosis events

Case Takeaways

before and after data
  • Placing the GORE® VIABAHN® Endoprosthesis across the elbow extended the life of the graft without sacrificing the opportunity for an upper arm access
