The reasons for comparative effectiveness clinical trials of arteriovenous fistula versus graft strategy in older adults on hemodialysis with a catheter.

Clinical Nephrology 2023 October 26
Clinicians and patients are guided by observational studies to make one of the most consequential decisions for patients with advanced kidney disease: the selection of the "right" hemodialysis vascular access. More than a decade ago, a call for randomized clinical trials was made to equitably compare clinical outcomes between arteriovenous (AV) fistulas (AVFs) and AV grafts (AVGs). Mounting evidence suggests that trade-offs between AVF- and AVGrelated outcomes are context dependent. In this article, we summarize four streams of evidence that collectively underpin the burden of equipoise between the two types of AV access in older adults with comorbidities who are on hemodialysis with a central venous catheter.
