An angiogram/fistulogram is an x-ray used to look inside your dialysis access. It's done to look for any narrowing or blockage in the access. Dye or carbon dioxide may be used in this procedure.
You may need this procedure because:
If you have any bleeding from your access site that will NOT stop, apply pressure to the access site and go to the nearest emergency department.
If you have questions or concerns before the procedure, please call your dialysis unit or the dialysis access nurse:
