Background High-output congestive heart failure secondary to high-flow arteriovenous fistula (AVF) has been reported in haemodialysis (HD) patients. As high-flow AVF (HFA) would be expected to result in fluid retention, we conducted an observational study to characterize the relationship between AVF flow (Qa) and extracellular water (ECW) in HD patients. Methods We measured Qa by ultrasound dilution in prevalent HD outpatients with an AVF in two dialysis centres. The ECW: total body water (TBW) ratio was measured both …
