Premium Fistuloplasty at Kauvery -
Where Compassionate Care Meets Innovation!

Less Invasive

Fistuloplasty employs lesser invasive techniques, reducing the necessity for extensive surgery and expediting recovery.

Reestablishes Circulation

Effectively opens narrowed or obstructed blood vessels, ensuring optimal blood flow for patients encountering vascular access challenges.

Mitigates Complications

By targeting stenosis or blockages, fistuloplasty diminishes the likelihood of complications linked to impaired vascular access.

Augmented Quality of Life

Enhances overall vascular health, thereby enhancing the effectiveness of dialysis and decreasing access-related complications.

Customised Therapy

Diverse fistuloplasty methodologies accommodate individual vascular conditions, ensuring tailored and efficient treatment.

What is Fistuloplasty?

Fistuloplasty is a minimally invasive procedure designed to address stenosis or blockages in the blood vessels, typically arteriovenous fistulas or grafts used in hemodialysis.

This technique revolutionizes vascular access, guaranteeing efficient dialysis.

At Kauvery, we boast cutting-edge amenities and expert healthcare professionals, delivering superior support during your fistuloplasty experience.

Dive into the Types of Fistuloplasty at Ours

There's no standard solution when it comes to vascular health. Our skilled team offers various types of fistuloplasty procedures, each tailored to address specific vascular conditions.

Balloon Fistuloplasty

Involves inflating a small balloon in the narrowed vessel to widen it and improve blood flow.

Stent Placement

A small mesh tube (stent) may be inserted to keep the vessel open, preventing it from narrowing again.

Drug-Coated Balloons

Balloons coated with medication to prevent the recurrence of stenosis and promote healing.

Atherectomy

Involves the removal of plaque from the vessel walls, improving blood flow.

Ultrasound-Guided Fistuloplasty

Uses ultrasound imaging to guide the procedure for enhanced precision.

Who Needs Fistuloplasty?

Here are the symptoms that might indicate a need for fistuloplasty:

  • Decrease in the effectiveness of your dialysis treatments within your fistula or graft.
  • Swelling, tenderness, or pain around the site of your fistula or graft around the area of the access.
  • Difficulty Feeling a Thrill(vibration) or Hearing a Bruit(whooshing sound) over the access site.
  • Skin color or temperature changes may indicate reduced blood flow due to fistula or graft blockage, presenting as paleness, discoloration, mottling, or coolness.
  • If blood flow rates are consistently lower than expected, it may be a sign of stenosis within the vascular access.
  • Frequent clotting of your fistula or graft, despite appropriate anticoagulation therapy.
  • Patients with prior fistula or graft stenosis may need surveillance or preemptive fistuloplasty to prevent recurrence.

Conditions that Require Fistuloplasty:

Access-Related Complications:

Minimises complications associated with inadequate vascular access, ensuring a smoother dialysis experience.

Kauvery Hospital's Fistuloplasty: Overview

Our advanced Fistuloplasty procedure treats stenosis or blockages within an arteriovenous fistula in a minimally invasive and precise way. Employing cutting-edge technology, we ensure improved outcomes and quick recovery for our patients.


Our Fistuloplasty procedures are guided by high-resolution ultrasound and fluoroscopy.

Using the latest in imaging technology, our Fistuloplasty procedures are guided by high-resolution ultrasound and fluoroscopy. These advanced imaging techniques allow for precise visualisation of the fistula and surrounding vessels, enabling accurate identification of blockages. This precision reduces the risk of complications, ensures effective treatment, and enhances overall patient safety. The real-time imaging capabilities facilitate immediate adjustments during the procedure, ensuring optimal results and a higher success rate.

By using advanced catheters and specialized balloons, we can efficiently dilate stenosed areas within the fistula.

Our approach focuses on minimising patient discomfort and recovery time. By using advanced catheters and specialised balloons, we can efficiently dilate stenosed areas within the fistula with smaller incisions and minimal trauma to surrounding tissues. This minimally invasive method reduces the risk of infection, lessens post-procedure pain, and allows patients to return to their daily activities more quickly. Our expertise in these techniques ensures a smoother and faster recovery process, making Fistuloplasty a safer and more convenient option for patients.

 

Our team uses state-of-the-art stents designed to conform to vessel movements, enhancing the procedure's effectiveness and ensuring long-term patency of the fistula.

Sometimes, when it's needed, our team uses these stents to keep the arteriovenous fistula open. These advanced stents are designed to move with the vessel, so they stay in place and reduce the chance of it getting all narrow again. Using these high-tech stents makes the procedure more effective and helps the fistula last longer. And that's a big deal for patients who rely on their fistula for treatments like dialysis. It's all about improving their quality of life.

Intravascular ultrasound imaging provides real-time, high-resolution images of the blood vessel's internal structure, allowing for better assessment of the severity and characteristics of the stenosis.

Digital subtraction angiography (DSA) systems with advanced imaging capabilities enable interventional radiologists to visualise blood flow dynamics and accurately assess the results of fistuloplasty in real-time.

Pre-procedural 3D printing and modelling techniques allow for the creation of patient-specific vascular anatomical models, that helps optimise procedural efficiency and outcomes.
