Context: Deep-seated arteriovenous fistula (AVF) poses a problem for cannulation. Sine-wave technique is described as a superficialization technique. A mini review of techniques of superficialization is presented. Aims: The aim of the study was to describe a technique of superficialization for deep-seated AVF. Settings and Design: This study was a descriptive study. Subjects and Methods: We describe “Sine-Wave” technique of superficializing the deep-seated AVF for easy cannulation. Statistical Analysis Used: Not applicable. Results: Sine-wave technique is an easily performed technique for superficializing the deep-seated AVF with good result. Conclusions: There are various techniques advocated to overcome the difficult cannulation in deep-seated AVF. However, all have certain potential shortcomings. Sine-wave technique of superficializing a deep-seated AVF easily overcomes these shortcomings.
