Abstract

Stenosis and central venous obstruction are very serious and frequent complications in hemodialysis patients. The incidence of these complications is 30% and is due to an increase in the flow and venous flow that generates inflammation and proliferation of the endothelium. Causes of acute venous occlusion have rarely been described. We report the clinical case of a acute occlusion of a covered stent in a right anonymous vein treated through a Bard Covera Plus recanalization and stent delivery procedure.
