Chronic renal failure patients with arteriovenous hemodialysis access may exhibit pain and neurological complaints due to local nerve compression by the access conduit vessels of autogenous arteriovenous fistulas or the prosthesis of arteriovenous grafts. In this study, we have examined the results of surgical intervention for vascular access-related nerve compression in the upper extremity.
