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:

 

SUPERFICIAL INFECTION

  • 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

 

EXTENSIVE INFECTION

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