can a shunt for dialysis be located any where else on body besides arms?


Posted by bobkats4157

my father has been on dialysis since april. started out with port hole in neck and now in chest. but doctors are wanting to put in arm. He is being fitted for a prostetic hand on his left arm, which only gives him his right arm for now. he is 72years old and in poor health overall. he is diabetic, congestive heart failure, has a defibilator. are shunts able to placed elsewhere on the body.
