Recently, Chongqing Iron and Steel Group employees Ultrasound, General Hospital researchers published papers, was designed to investigate the clinical value of color Doppler ultrasound after the end-stage renal disease in old autogenous arteriovenous fistula (AVF). Research indicates that color Doppler ultrasound examination is an important tool for monitoring the AVF, the fistula to extend the use of time and improve the quality of life in hemodialysis patients has important practical value. This article was published in the magazine in 2015 the first 15, "Modern Medicine & Health."
 
For December 2010 to October 2014 106 cases of ESRD patients by age group, the older group (≥60 years) 81 cases and the control group (<60 years old), 25 cases in which the average age of elderly patients (68.3 ± 7.3 years) in the control group (45.1 ± 5.2) years. Two groups of patients after surgery for fistula AVF development, complications, blood parameters were observed summarize and statistically analyzed.
 
Elderly group AVF maturation and poor postoperative fistula complication rate [19.75% (16/81)] was significantly higher than [8.00% (2/25)], the difference was statistically significant (P <0.05). Compared with the preoperative, the elderly group and control group after 2,3,6 months cephalic vein diameter, fistula blood flow were increased, but the older group than the control group increased slowly, the difference was statistically significant (P <0.05)
