Cephalic arch stenosis is a known cause of hemodialysis access failure in patients with brachiocephalic fistulas (BCFs). Outcomes of endovascular treatment are affected by resistance of the stenosis to balloon dilation, a high vein rupture rate and the development of early restenosis. The purpose of this retrospective study was to report outcomes after cutting balloon angioplasty (CBA) of cephalic arch stenosis.
