The presence of a lower limb arteriovenous graft (LL-AVG) is indicative of a group of complex hemodialysis patients who have precarious long-term vascular access. The aim of this study is to describe our experience of the clinical decisions and interactions between LL-AVG and renal transplantation. The records of 23 patients who received a transplant in the presence of a LL-AVG between 2010 and 2018 were analyzed: firstly, to determine whether patients with a LL-AVG received extended criteria transplants, the implantation procedure, and the management of the LL-AVG in the post-operative period. Seventeen patients (74%) had "end-stage access" and were thus considered for all offer stratified by the kidney donor profile index (KDPI) and donor type (DBD or DCD). In eleven patients (48%), a kidney with a high risk of delayed graft function was transplanted. Same-sided renal transplantation occurred in only 35% of cases, and of these, only one LL-AVG was ligated immediately to improve transplant perfusion. A patient-based approach applied in decision-making on management of the LL-AVG post-transplantation should include (a) the likelihood of delayed graft function, (b) the need for post-operative hemodialysis, (c) the side of proposed transplant compared to the LL-AVG, and (d) local complications. © 2020 John Wiley & Sons A/S.
