Abstract [en]

Objective. To study the patency and complications associated with the Dialock, an access device for haemodialysis. Material and methods. The records of seven Swedish patients who were treated with the Dialock access device between 2000 and 2004 were studied retrospectively. Results. A total of 10 Dialock devices were used in seven patients. The mean period of patency was 16.3±13.8 months. Major complications observed were bleeding in the dose pocket in three patients and infection in four. Three patients experienced no complications. The 1-year patency was similar to that of a newly created arteriovenous fistula used in our unit. Conclusions. In spite of the associated complications, the Dialock is an acceptable access device for haemodialysis patients with vascular access problems. Although the Dialock is no longer available on the market, similar access devices may be of importance in the future. © 2007 Taylor & Francis.
