Summary at a Glance
Venous stenosis in the outflow tract of AVFs is a common cause of AVF failure. The authors describe the relationship between flow and wall shear stress upon outflow intimal hyperplasia in a non-uraemic canine model of AVF in order to explore the mechanism of stenosis and allow further evaluation of the complex haemodynamic changes involved.
