Objective We assessed outcomes of open surgical venous thrombectomy with temporary arteriovenous fistula, and the procedure's effect on health-related quality of life. Method We retrospectively analyzed 48 (26 at long-term) patient medical records. Mortality rates, patency, and risk of post-thrombotic syndrome were analyzed using Kaplan-Meier estimation. The association between risk factors/coagulation disorders and patency/post-thrombotic syndrome along with patient health-related quality of life at long-term was analyzed employing various statistical methods. Results Patient one-year survival rate was 93?±?4% and primary one-year patency rate was 89?±?5% (secondary one-year patency rate 97?±?3%). Freedom from post-thrombotic syndrome after eight years was 80?±?12% (post-thrombotic syndrome rate 20?±?12%). Health-related quality of life was impaired vs. normative data in the physical and social subscales, and in the mental component score ( p?
