Abstract
Introduction: Vascular access for dialysis is considered the biggest challenge for chronic dialysis patients, and arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is still the best way to provide vascular access for dialysis. In the present study, survival and quality of AVF was compared between local anesthesia and regional block techniques. Methods: The present study recruited patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) undergoing hemodialysis through AVF in 2014-2015. The subjects were randomly divided into local anesthesia (A) and axillary block (B) groups, and received AVF in the antecubital region. The AVF patency and flow were compared between the two groups both long-term and short-term. Data was analyzed in SPSS software. Results: In the present study, 60 patients with ESRD and candidates for AVF creation were divided into local anesthesia (A) and axillary block (B) groups of 30 people. Patients' mean age was 54.28 [standard deviation (SD) = 14.45] years. No significant difference was observed between the two groups in mean AVF flow and patency 24 hours, 10 days, and 6 months after the surgery. Gender had no effect on AVF flow in the two groups. However, AVF flow was significantly lower in patients with diabetes and ischemic heart disease (IHD). Conclusion: The results obtained showed no significant difference in AVF flow and patency between local anesthesia and axillary block both in the short-term and long-term. Diabetes and IHD significantly reduced AVF flow.
