Abstract

We report a case of occlusion of a graft related to residual thrombus collection at the inflow in a blind pouch formed by conversion of a previous brachial cephalic fistula to a graft. The thrombus was unable to be dislodged by conventional methods with the use of a Fogarty balloon and maceration of thrombus with angioplasty. A covered stent was placed at the inflow segment over this thrombus in order to restore the flow through the graft. Angiographic evidence for this case is also reported.
