Hello,

A high volume fistula may well cause worsening pulmonary hypertension in my opinion. Not to say that this risk outweighs the benefit of a fistula over a catheter. But the volume of the fistula flow may well become an issue necessitating revision if it becomes too large. Interesting question.
