The Current Situation

Limited Vascular Access

Many patients rely on permanent vascular access to receive vital therapies such as hemodialysis, chemotherapy and nutrition. While permanent access can take 4 months to mature, hemodialysis patients receive therapy via a central venous catheter (CVC).

The Problem

Compromised Therapy

40% of patients who receive CVCs can develop a venous obstruction. The current approach is to move to another central vein for CVC placement. “Going left” greatly reduces the ability to place and mature a functioning fistula.1

The Objective

Restore Vein Access

Bluegrass Vascular has developed a Don’t Go Left approach to reliably and repeatedly restore access, which avoids using left-sided veins. Our unique approach is designed to improve patient outcomes and reduce cost of care.
