Abstract

The incidence of radiocephalic arteriovenous fistulae complicated by ischemic steal syndrome is low; however, its sequelae can be quite devastating. Traditional management includes open ligation of the distal radial artery. This series details 4 cases of successful embolization of the distal radial artery for flow interruption to treat ischemic steal syndrome and salvage functional dialysis access. For radiocephalic arteriovenous fistulae complicated by steal syndrome, distal radial artery endovascular coil embolization is a valuable treatment strategy.
