This ensures a steady flow of blood into their stomachs by preventing clot formations at the puncture site.
Nevertheless, at the start of hemodialysis, change of puncture site is proposed for each hemodialysis session, particularly to allow the healing of stab wounds and to avoid possible complications (i.e., hematoma, dilatation of the venous conduit, stenosis, infections, pseudoaneurysm) (Besarab & Kumbar, 2014; Sidawy et al., 2008; Stolic, Grbic, Odalovic & Smilic, 2015; Twardowski, 1995; Verhallen, Kooistra, & vanJaarsveld, 2007).
