Brachial-axillary bridge graft is an alternative to native fistula in the absence of vein access or defect of maturation. Infection of the prosthetic graft is a serious complication. It is a relatively common complication and is the second leading cause of graft loss. It should be prevented by the adoption of extreme rigor concerning monitoring of access, their care and punctures. We report three cases with different aspect clinic and therapeutic of infected brachial-axillary prosthesis for hemodialysis.
