Description

Duplex sonography can be used to detect stenoses: the accuracy of the technique is estimated at 90%. The loss in specificity can be explained by turbulent flow patterns set up within venous access fistulas. The diagnostic accuracy is improved in straight segment grafts to the efferent veins, where the accuracy increases to 95%.
