A Non-Transposed Brachiobasilic Arteriovenous Fistula (NT-BBAVF) involves a side-to-side anastomosis between the brachial artery and basilic vein. An NT-BBAVF must be considered in the elbow region before placing a brachiocephalic arteriovenous fistula in patients with radial artery insufficiency of the forearm that requires hemodialysis. Herein, we introduce another modified Non-Transposed Brachio Cubital AVF (NT-BCAVF). In this case, we lowered the anastomotic position, ligated the perforating vein, and rendered the forearm cephalic vein valves incompetent by inserting a ureteral catheter. In this case, NT-BCAVF was comparable to wrist radiocephalic AVF. The NT-BCAVF is an ideal surgical procedure, especially when the forearm arteries are insufficient and the cephalic vein is good.
