Fistulography
Patients with slow flow in their dialysis fistula are often sent to Angiography and Interventional Radiology for a study called a fistulogram. A needle is placed in the fistula just like at dialysis. An x-ray contrast is squirted into the fistula and an x-ray image is taken. These often reveal an abnormality in the vein. A second puncture is made and a small plastic tube with a balloon on the end is advanced. This specialized device is called an angioplasty balloon catheter. It is used to balloon dilate the area of abnormality. By stretching open the vein with a balloon, flow will be improved and normal hemodialysis can be resumed
