Successful hemodialysis is contingent upon the creation of proper vascular access. Chronic vascular access was first established in 1960 by Scribner and colleagues when they created a shunt between the radial artery and the cephalic vein using an external Silastic device. However, this device was fraught with problems such as bleeding, clotting, and infection. In 1966, Breschia and Cimino described a surgical fistula between the radial artery and the cephalic vein just proximal to the wrist, thereby eliminating the external shunt and enabling a high flow system for hemodialysis.
