This procedure is usually performed in patients that undergo hemodialysis (process for patients with kidney failure that need their blood to cleaned externally) in order to increase reliable access to the bloodstream. The arteriovenous graft, which is a small tube placed under the skin, connects to an artery on one end, and a vein on the other. This graft then can be used as an access point in the hemodialysis process.
