Arteriovenous (AV) graft infection part 5

AV graft hemodialysis 1



Arteriovenous graft infection management is a balance between resolving the infection while preserving the vascular access as follows:



  • Treat initially with broad-spectrum antibiotic therapy to cover both gram-negative and gram-positive microorganisms
  • Base subsequent antibiotic therapy upon culture results
  • Incision and drainage may be beneficial



  • Treat with appropriate antibiotic therapy
  • Resection of the infected graft material
