The aim of this analysis os to understand The prevalence of end-stage renal disease spans the spectrum of age. Arteriovenous grafts are viable alternatives for hemodialysis access in patients whose anatomy precludes placement of an arteriovenous fistula. This report describes the age-related outcomes after arteriovenous graft placement in a population-based cohort. A retrospective cohort study was conducted of all patients who initiated hemodialysis in the U.S. Renal Data System (2007-2014). The χ2 test, t-test, Kaplan-Meier analysis, log-rank test, and multivariable logistic and Cox regression analyses were employed to evaluate access maturation, interventions, patency, and mortality. The results of this review states that out Of the 78,341 patients studied, 10,150 (13%) were younger than 50 years, 13,167 (16.8%) were 50 to 59 years, 19,975 (25.5%) were 60 to 69 years, 20,307 (25.9%) were 70 to 79 years, and 14,742 (18.8%) were 80+ years. There was no significant difference in access maturation time for patients in the older age categories compared to patients younger than 50 years.
