Medical adjuvant treatment to improve the patency of arteriovenous fistulae and grafts: a systematic review and meta-analysis. Eur J Vasc Endovasc Surg 2016; 52: 243-252.
Published: 9th November 2016

Fifteen trials were included that studied 2,230 procedures. Most trials were small and heterogenous. Antiplatelet agents were used most frequently; also fish oil, and warfarin were studied. There was no evidence of a beneficial effect for any adjuvant treatment except ticlopidine (3 trials) which has been withdrawn.Pubmed Link
