Hemodialysis (HD) is a lifesaving procedure which depends largely on effective and healthy vascular access to the patient's circulation. Preservation of veins in both arms is essential as HD is often a life-long commitment for survival. That is why the dialysis vascular access should not be used for routine procedures such as blood sampling, infusions or transfusions; such procedures should be via smaller veins like those in the dorsum of the hand [1].
