Nipro BioHole Buttonhole Access Cannulation

Nipro BioHole Dull Needle

The BioHole dull anti-stick needle creates an excellent combination with the buttonhole cannulation technique.
• Prevents cutting of the established scar tissue tunnel
• Minimizes penetration force which may be associated with less venipuncture pain
• May decrease infiltration incidents
• May reduce bleeding time post-dialysis
• May extend the life of the AV fistula access
• Provided a useful alternative for home hemodialysis and self-cannulation patients.

KDOQI recommendations for established buttonhole sites using a dull, anti-stick needle.2

• Cannulate site in same location using a sharp fistula needle for approximately 6-10 cannulations.
• The dull, anti-stick needle can be used once a scar tissue tunnel track is well developed.
• A quick transition to the dull, anti-stick needle will preserve the integrity of the mature, consistent site and prevent complications.
