MUNOZ PEREZ, Raquel  and  PEREZ GIL, Anna. Determining intra-access venous pressure. Rev Soc Esp Enferm Nefrol [online]. 2009, vol.12, n.3, pp.175-178. ISSN 1139-1375.

Measurement of intra-access venous pressure is a vascular monitoring method that facilitates early detection of dysfunctions in arteriovenous fistulas. Our aim was to show how we use this detection method and describe our experience in monitoring 31 patients. In 9 patients a one-off increase in intra-access venous pressure was observed, and in 4 patients an effective preventive angioplasty was carried out. In 7 patients who continually showed an increase in intra-access pressure, vascular access was thrombosed and not recoverable by angio radiology. The increase in intra-access pressure can facilitate the early detection of problems in vascular access.

Keywords : angioplasty; venous pressure; haemodialysis; arteriovenous fistula; vascular prothesis.
