Özet

ObjectiveArteriovenous fistula (AVF) in patients undergoing hemodialysis (HD) may cause coronary left internal mammary artery (IMA) steal. This phenomenon was demonstrated by few prospective studies with limited number of patients and case reports. We aimed to demonstrate with a relatively larger patient population that the AVF may cause ipsilateral IMA steal.
