Welcome to healthcaremagic forum

A-V fistula surgery often fails, most commonly due to thin veins. There is a new procedure, where a venous graft is used to create A-V fistula. So thats one option, you can talk to the surgeon regarding this.

Transplant is a good option, depends the age and condition of patient, location/city/state where it is done.

In india, if the donor is a family member (blood type and tissue has to be matched for tht), its about 3-4 lacs.

Hello there,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic. A failure of arterio-venous fistula for renal failures could be due to technical errors, hypotension, site of insertion, size of vessels, diabetes or even atherosclerosis.We can reduce failure rate of AVFs by monitoring and controlling the blood pressure during hemodialysis and prevent hypotension by salted regimen intake.Acute inflow stenosis is a rare cause, but can lead to acute inflow obstruction and cause sudden fistula failure and limb-threatening acute ischemia.As regards the cost, only surgical part would come to ~2000USD,but followed by that there is again chemotherapy too,the cost of which would vary from person to person.Wish your father good health.
