Abstract

This study was performed to analyze the average amount of radiopaque contrast utilized by a single interventionist to perform hemodialysis vascular access procedures. The average contrast use for six different categories of procedures performed over a 4 month period was calculated from contrast usage data compiled on Braintree software. The procedures investigated were angioplasty (n=217), angiogram (n=79), fistula thrombectomy (n=37), graft thrombectomy (n=30), de novo tunneled catheter placement (n=7), and tunneled catheter exchange (n=18). The results indicate that radiopaque contrast usage coincides with the complexity of the procedure type.
