Poster 102: Spencer Tingey – Human Arteriovenous Fistula Wall Thickness in the First Six Months After Creation

Faculty mentor: Yan-Ting Shiu

We took MRI scans of patients undergoing arteriovenous fistula creation surgery at 1-3 days, 6 weeks and 6 months after the operation. Using these MRI scans, three-dimensional models were reconstructed and measurements were taken of the vessel wall thickness and lumen area. We found that the vessel wall thickens over the first six months after AVF creation, and this thickening is positively correlated with changes to the lumen area over the same time period.
