Guidelines on Vascular Access Cannulation and Care

Joint project of EDTNA/ERCA and Fresenius Medical Care to achieve enhanced multidisciplinary renal team practice in dialysis and establish VA guidelines


Project Coordinators:

Maria Teresa Parisotto- General and Scientific Coordinator on behalf of Fresenius Medical Care

Jitka Pancirova - General Coordinator on behalf of EDTNA/ERCA

Jean Pierre Van Waeleghem- Scientific Coordinator on behalf of EDTNA/ERCA


Raise awareness for the importance of vascular access management as the “patient’s lifeline”

Define vascular access cannulation practices based on clinical evidence (six months observational study) to minimize complications

Develop guidelines for vascular access cannulation and care

Project Objectives:


Vascular Access

Project Status

  • Project Framework Definition

  • Preparation of Observational Study Protocol (VASACC)

  • Selection of Participating Countries and Centres

  • Data Collection (Jan - Jul 2013)

  • Data Analysis (Aug - Dec 2013)

  • Development of Vascular Access Guidelines (Jan - Jun 2014)

  • Launch of Vascular Access Guidelines - EDTNA/ERCA 2014


Vascular Access

Project Status

Data Collection study beginning:

  • Descriptive parameters – per centre

  • Number of patients on chronic HD treatment

  • Number of nurses and physicians in charge,

  • Descriptive paramters – per enrolled patient

  • Age & gender

  • Medical diagnoses, type of vascular access, including location

  • Status of AVF creation (primary, secondary, previous complications, etc.)

  • Medication

  • Dialysis prescription

  • Measured dialysis dose Kt/V


Vascular Access

Project Status

Data Collection per patient per treatment:

  • VA - General setting

  • AVF localisation (forearm, elbow, upper arm, other)

  • Needle characteristics (size, back-eye (y/n), sharp vs. blunt)

  • Medication with impact on coagulation

  • VA - Cannulation technique

  • Rope ladder vs. area vs. button hole

  • Antegrade vs. retrograde puncture

  • Distance between needle puncture sites (<3, 3-6, >6 cm)

  • Primary bevel-up vs. bevel-down

  • Needle rotation after insertion (y/n)


Vascular Access

Project Status

Outcome parameters:

  • VA Complications

  • Patencyimpairment, indicated by

    • QBdrop* <50% of prescribed value

    • Signs and symptoms of fistula thrombosis or manifest occlusion

  • AVF infection (necessary: evident local signs)

  • Haematoma with swelling and/or induration

  • Numbers of punctures >=4 / session

  • Hospitalisation*

  • Death*

* attributable to AVF (complication)

Results from the VA Survey 2012

  • For the third consecutive year a questionnaire about vascular access assessment was distributed at the Strasbourg Conference 2012 in seven languages.

  • A total of 9xxx participants from more than 44different countries participated in the survey.


Which Country are you from?

% of Completed Questionnaires per European Country

N. of Country 44


How many Years have you been Working in Dialysis?


In which setting are you working?


Which needle do you remove first?


How do you perform haemostasis after removing the needle?


Are you in favour of asking for patient’s help, by applying pressure during haemostasis?


Depending on the characteristics of the patient, on average how long does the haemostasis of a puncture site take?

Multiple answers were possible


In your opinion, should vascular access care be included in a patients training and education programme?


Is there currently a vascular access training programme

for patients in your centre?


In your opinion is the current patient’s training and education

programme for vascular access sufficient?


In your opinion who should be responsible for organising a

training and education programme?


Please rank the following topics on a scale of 1 to 6 according to importance when teaching a patient about vascular access.

(1 for most important, 6 for the least important)


On a regular basis, do you currently use a vascular access

monitoring tool in your clinic?


Who is the professional in charge of organising the vascular access monitoring programme on regular basis?


VA Survey 2012 - Conclusion

43.7% of participants work in public hospitals

The first needle removed is the arterial one (82%)

77.5% of the respondents consider the current patient’s training and education programme for vascular access sufficient

For 75.6% of the respondents, the professional in charge of organising the vascular access monitoring is the nurse, followed by the nephrologist with 18.5% and vascular access surgeon with 5.8% .
