Abstract

It is reported on the use of the double-lumen Bi-Flo-puncture canule in chronic haemodialysis patients. In a sufficient flow through the atrioventricular fistula no significant decrease of the effect of dialysis was the result. It is recommended to render the proof of a perhaps existing shunt volume between the two lumina of the Bi-Flo-canule before the permanent use of it, in case of the existence of an only moderately functioning atrioventricular fistula.
