1Kalp ve Damar Cerrahisi Kliniği, İstanbul Özel Erdem Hastanesi, İstanbul We aimed to draw attention to the fact that distal vascular access may be provided through transposition of dorsally lying basilic vein (DSBV)in patients with end stage renal disease who do not have an appropriate superficial vein in the volar aspect of the forearm. We have retro- spectively analyzed 11 patients with no appropriate cephalic or medial antecubital vein in the volar aspect of the forearm but to whom transposition (ventralization) procedure has been made in be- tween December 2005-September 2011 upon finding of an acceptable DSBV. Patients were fol- lowed for a mean period of 19. 6 months (3-46 months). Patients were dialyzed in a mean period of 5.8 weeks (4-8 weeks). Throughout the follw-up period primary patency rates were 91% and as- sisted patency was 100%. A safe and an easy to reach distal dialysis access can be maintained through transposition of DSBV in patients devoid of superficial veins for an AV fistula in the volar aspect of the forearm.
