BIOHOLE™ AVF NEEDLE - Tip

Nipro’s Biohole AVF needles are intended for the buttonhole technique, a less painful and more convenient puncture for home dialysis and healthcare centers alike 1-5

Extend the life of the vascular access and reduce pain compared to rope-ladder technique thanks to a blunt, siliconized needle1-5.
Biohole AVF needles offer maximum operational efficiency for healthcare professionals and improved quality of life for patients. 

  • Siliconized dull needle reduces pain compared to the rope-ladder technique1-5

  • Minimizes potential needling error and hematoma formation 4,6,7

  • Increases freedom for home dialysis patients thanks to self-cannulation
  • Less AVF complications: reduces aneurysm formation and only two puncture sites required 4

  • Decreases bleeding time  8-10

  • Ultra-thin wall for optimal blood flow 

  • Textured, turnable of fixed, color-coded wings
  • Color-coded tapered luer
  • White occlusion clamp allows easy distinction with standard and safety needles
  • Available in regular or single dull needle 
  • Includes scab remover
  • Latex-free, DEHP-free
  • Gamma sterilization
