  • Very concerned, prominent veins across chest after dialysis treatment

    I noticed tonight a few hours after my mom's dialysis that she has very prominent veins leading from her fistula up to her shoulder and across her chest. There also seem to be one leading from the fistula towards her forearm. I've never seen this before. I've called her nephrologist and am still waiting for him to call back. Is this normal or should I just take her to the hospital?

    She's been on dialysis through Davita for almost three years, going three times a week.

    It sounds like she has a stenosis (narrowing) in her fistula causing increased pressures that cause her veins to stand out. Hopefully by now, you have had it ballooned open.
