Abstract

Steal syndrome, especially in elderly patients with peripheral vascular disease, is a serious complication following creation of an arteriovenous fistula (AVF) that, if neglected, can lead to amputation. The classic maneuver to deal with the steal syndrome is ligating the AVF and performing another procedure to gain dialysis access. We describe a simple technique of effectively reversing the steal syndrome by banding the vein of the AVF with a ringed Gore-Tex cuff that salvages the AVF and allows its immediate use for dialysis.
