Arteriovenous fistula thrombosis (AVFT) is still a common cause of morbidity in patients undergoing regular hemodialysis (HD). Many factors have been found to induce AVFT. Some of those factors are local and others are systemic ones. In this study, we evaluated some local and systemic factors simultaneously, to predict the most potent risk factor for AVFT in HD patients.
