Multiple variable survival analysis of factors associated with access survival

Type of access survivalClinical variableHR (95% CI)P
Cumulative survival including primary failuresMales vs female0.80 (0.65 to 0.97)0.02
Prior access1.26 (1.04 to 1.54)0.02
Cumulative survival excluding primary failuresBC fistula vs graft0.53 (0.40 to 0.70)<0.001
BB fistula vs BC fistula1.07 (0.67 to 1.70)0.78
  • BB, brachiobasilic; BC, brachiocephalic.

    Cox proportional survival analysis was modeled with the following clinical variables: access type, patient age, sex, diabetes, coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular disease, cerebrovascular disease, and prior access.
