Long-term parenteral nutrition with arteriovenous fistula.

Abstract

Sixteen arteriovenous fistulas were created for parenteral nutrition. The complications included stenosis at the site of needling or at the site of vascular anastomosis. Two infections occurred from the surgical creation of a fistula. There were no infections related to fluid infusion. The advantage of the technique is simplicity of fluid administration and the absence of dressings and catheters between infusions.
