This is the link to a survey highlighting a growing concern of life threatening haemorrhage in AV fistula.  This is in advance of a forthcoming alert from NHS England- building upon a patient safety “signal” from the NPSA in 2011.
 
This online, anonymous survey has been jointly designed and validated by multi-disciplinary surgical trainees and lead members of the British Renal Society- Vascular Access special interest group.  
 
The aim of the survey is to better understand experience, understanding and management of complications of AV fistula across vascular surgeons, transplant surgeons, dialysis staff and ED departments.
