    We retrospectively reviewed 12 cases of transposed brachiobasilic arteriovenous fistulas created in our hospital. There were no perioperative fistula failure, resulting in useful access for hemodialysis in all cases. At mid-term follow-up, venous stenosis occurred in 4 cases, but they were all successfully treated with endovascular treatments. Primary patency rates were 73% at 1 year and 55% at 3 years. Secondary patency rates were 92% at 1 year and 75% at 3 years. Transposed brachiobasilic arteriovenous fistula represented an useful option with favorable mid-term patency rates with low rate of complications.
