Brief Summary:
Dialysis patients presenting for angioplasty intervention for graft failure will be randomized to receive either Sirolimus or not receive Sirolimus (standard of care) to assess the time from primary failure or angioplasty intervention to second or next angioplasty intervention or graft failure.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
End Stage Renal Disease Venous Stenosis Drug: Sirolimus Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This is a randomized control study to determine the feasibility of using sirolimus peri-angioplasty to compare the time from primary failure or angioplasty intervention to second or next angioplasty intervention or graft failure to a control group who would not have received Sirolimus

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 36 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: A Randomized Open Label Trial of Oral Sirolimus for Decrease of Stenosis in Arteriovenous Fistula in Hemo-dialysis Patients When Compared With Standard Therapy
Study Start Date : December 2011
Estimated Primary Completion Date : July 2019
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 2019

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Sirolimus
Participants will take sirolimus for 3 days prior to procedure and 30 days post procedure.
Drug: Sirolimus
3 mg po od loading dose for two days, then 2 mg po od for thirty days
Other Name: rapamycin
No Intervention: Not taking Sirolimus
Participants will not change the standard of care.



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Comparison of the sirolimus group to the control group from time of assisted primary and secondary patency rates to access abandonment [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Comparison of the sirolimus group to the control group from time of assisted primary and secondary patency rates to access abandonment


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Secondary End point [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Secondary end points will be improvement in vascular access flow rates as measured by either online conductivity dialysance or ultrasound dilution techniques.
