Comparison of Interventions Between endoAVF and a Matched Surgical AVF Cohort Published in The Journal of Vascular Access

March 25, 2017 - The Novel Endovascular Access Trial (NEAT) data was compared to a propensity-score matched surgical AVF cohort using a 5% Medicare sample.  The comparison demonstrated that patients with an endoAVF experienced fewer post-creation procedures and associated costs within the first year after fistula creation.  [link to full publication]
