|Arteriovenous Fistula Complications and Failure||Device: Clipped anastomosis Procedure: Handsewn anastomosis|
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Actual Enrollment :||38 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Parallel Assignment|
|Official Title:||The Safety and Effectiveness of Clipped Technique vs. Hand-Sewn Technique for Anastomosis in Arteriovenous Fistulas|
|Study Start Date :||August 2012|
|Primary Completion Date :||December 2014|
|Study Completion Date :||December 2014|
Experimental: Clipped anastomosis
A vascular clip device will be used to create the anastomosis during arteriovenous fistula creation.
Device: Clipped anastomosis
The vascular clip devise will be used to complete the anastomosis during fistula creation.
Other Name: Anastoclip (Le Maitre)
Active Comparator: Handsewn anastomosis
A handsewn technique will be used to create the anastomosis in arteriovenous fistula creation.
Procedure: Handsewn anastomosis
a handsewn anastomosis technique will be used during fistula creation.
- Patency rates [ Time Frame: 2 years postoperative ]Patency will be assessed and the fistula considered patent if it has been accessed for dialysis at least once, or based on clinical assessment with palpable thrill if dialysis access has not been attempted.
- Surgical complications [ Time Frame: 2 years postoperative ]Complications will be monitored intraoperatively, and postoperatively. These include any re-interventions, and wound complications, infection, hematoma, thrombosis , steal syndrome, distal ischemia.
- Cost [ Time Frame: 1 year postoperative ]Cost for the vascular clip device will be compared to cost of the handsewn technique.
