Basilic vein transposition (BVT) fulfills the need for a durable conduit with high patency and maturation rates. This retrospective review examines a single group’s. Methods: We have used the transposed proximal basilic vein in 65 procedures to construct an autogenous arteriovenous fistula (AVF) to the brachial artery in To extend the availability of each extremity as an access site, we have used the transposed basilic vein for fistula construction since Our purpose is to.
