The Medical Care of Multiple Disciplinary Team Reduces the Risks of Complications in Patients after Arteriovenous Fistula Operation
Open Journal of Nephrology
Arteriovenous fistula (AVF) operation is recognized a gold standard of hemodialysis for end-stage renal disease. Because various complications may occur during perioperative period, medical care plays an important role in improving the possibility of AVF operation. The objective of the study was to explore the effect of the mode of multiple disciplinary team (MDT) medical care on the patients with end-stage renal disease treated by arteriovenous fistula (AVF) operation. Method: 98 patients with
... end-stage renal disease under the AVF operation were divided into observation group and control group. The control group was performed with regular medical care and for the observation group was treated under the mode of MDT medical care. Complications after operation, hospitalized time and medical satisfaction were comprehensively compared between the both groups. Results: The overall complications including swelling, bleeding, infection and thrombosis in observation group accounted for 5%, however, 19% of patients suffered different complications in the control group. The total complications significantly decreased in the observation group compared with control group (P < 0.001). The hospitalization time was shortened to 9.8 ± 5.6 days in the observation group, and the average hospitalization in control group was 17.8 ± 8.9 days. The medical satisfaction was increased by 20.83 percent in the observation group compared with the control group (P < 0.001). 75% patients in control group were satisfied with medical care, and 98.53% patients were satisfied for observation group. Conclusion: The mode of MDT medical care was beneficial for patients with end-stage renal disease after AVF operation, which could significantly reduce complications, hospitalized time and improve patients' degree of satisfaction. Thus, it should be recommended in the clinical work.
