clotting with tessio line

Postby michelew » Mon Apr 15, 2013 2:19 pm

I have been dialysing via a tessio line since july 2012, my fistula failed immediately after surgery, I am waiting for another attempt!, I have problems with clotting.
My line has clotted solid before now, and I have lost the complete machine circuit - complete with the 900mls of blood on numerous occasions.
Various anticoagulants have been tried, and now it looks likely I will have to start taking warfarin - has anyone else had similar problems??
