Sites of stenosis in AV fistulae for haemodialysis access. (1/955)

BACKGROUND: A large proportion of late failures of radiocephalic arteriovenous fistulae are related to the progression of intimal hyperplasia. The aetiology of this process is still unknown but the fistula configuration and resultant haemodynamics have been implicated. This clinical study was devised to identify sites of stenosis in patients with fistulae and relate the findings to various clinical and geometrical parameters. METHOD: Measurement of anastomotic length and angle was made intraoperatively in 25 consecutive fistulae. Post-operative assessment was carried out at regular intervals using duplex and colour-flow ultrasonography. RESULTS: Stenoses were present in all 25 of the fistulae studied at 3 months. The stenoses could be classified to three specific sites: at the anastomosis (Type 1), on the inner wall of the curved region of the cephalic vein (Type 2) and just proximal to this curved segment where the vein straightens out (Type 3). Most of Type 1 and Type 2 stenoses were not progressive while Type 3 stenoses were generally progressive. CONCLUSION: These findings emphasize the need for an effective surveillance programme of AV fistulae.  (+info)

Association of plasma fibrinogen concentration with vascular access failure in hemodialysis patients. (2/955)

BACKGROUND: Elevated plasma fibrinogen is an important risk factor for coronary artery disease in the general population and patients with chronic renal failure. High plasma fibrinogen may trigger thrombus formation in arteriovenous fistulas. We performed a prospective, cohort study to evaluate the association of plasma fibrinogen concentration with vascular access failure in patients undergoing long-term haemodialysis. METHODS: Between September 1989 and October 1995, 144 patients underwent a vascular access operation. In March 1997, 102 patients (56 M, 46 F) who had been followed up for more than 18 months (median; 37 months, range; 18-102 months) were included in the study. The median age of the patients was 52 years (range; 19-78 years). In 35 patients, renal disease was secondary to diabetes mellitus. The type of vascular access was a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) graft in 17 patients. Seventy-seven patients received recombinant human erythropoietin (r-HuEPO) therapy during the follow-up period. Plasma fibrinogen, albumin, total cholesterol, hematocrit, platelets and creatinine were measured at the time of operation. Vascular access failure was defined as the occurrence of complications requiring transluminal angioplasty, thrombolytic therapy or surgical repair. RESULTS: Thirty-eight patients had at least one vascular access failure and the incidence was 0.3 (range; 0-2.4) episodes per patient-year. The survival rate of vascular access was 78% (native fistula; 80%, PTFE graft; 71%) after 12 months and 70% (native fistula; 73%, PTFE graft; 51%) after 24 months. Older age, a PTFE graft, r-HuEPO therapy, higher hematocrit, lower albumin and higher fibrinogen levels were significantly associated with vascular access failure, whereas gender, diabetes mellitus, total cholesterol and platelet count were not. Plasma fibrinogen was inversely correlated with albumin (r=-0.38, P=0.001). The cumulative vascular access survival was significantly lower in patients with high plasma fibrinogen levels (> or = 460 mg/dl) compared with patients with low levels (< 460 mg/dl) (P=0.007). Independent risk factors for vascular access failure analysed by Cox's proportional hazards model were older age (RR; 1.36 by 10-year increment), higher fibrinogen level (RR; 1.20 by 100 mg/dl increment), PTFE graft (RR; 2.28) and r-HuEPO therapy (RR; 3.79). CONCLUSION: High plasma fibrinogen level is an independent risk factor for vascular access failure in haemodialysis patients.  (+info)

Right atrial bypass grafting for central venous obstruction associated with dialysis access: another treatment option. (3/955)

PURPOSE: Central venous obstruction is a common problem in patients with chronic renal failure who undergo maintenance hemodialysis. We studied the use of right atrial bypass grafting in nine cases of central venous obstruction associated with upper extremity venous hypertension. To better understand the options for managing this condition, we discuss the roles of surgery and percutaneous transluminal angioplasty with stent placement. METHODS: All patients had previously undergone placement of bilateral temporary subclavian vein dialysis catheters. Severe arm swelling, graft thrombosis, or graft malfunction developed because of central venous stenosis or obstruction in the absence of alternative access sites. A large-diameter (10 to 16 mm) externally reinforced polytetrafluoroethylene (GoreTex) graft was used to bypass the obstructed vein and was anastomosed to the right atrial appendage. This technique was used to bypass six lesions in the subclavian vein, two lesions at the innominate vein/superior vena caval junction, and one lesion in the distal axillary vein. RESULTS: All patients except one had significant resolution of symptoms without operative mortality. Bypass grafts remained patent, allowing the arteriovenous grafts to provide functional access for 1.5 to 52 months (mean, 15.4 months) after surgery. CONCLUSION: Because no mortality directly resulted from the procedure and the morbidity rate was acceptable, this bypass grafting technique was adequate in maintaining the dialysis access needed by these patients. Because of the magnitude of the procedure, we recommend it only for the occasional patient in whom all other access sites are exhausted and in whom percutaneous dilation and/or stenting has failed.  (+info)

Volume flow measurement in hemodialysis shunts using time-domain correlation. (4/955)

Volume flow was measured in 58 hemodialysis shunts (32 grafts and 26 radial fistulas) using the color velocity imaging-quantification method. This method is based on time-domain correlation for velocity calculation and integration of time-varying velocity profiles generated by M-mode sampling. Measurements were made in the brachial artery to estimate radial fistula flow or directly in the grafts. Intraoperator reproducibility was 14.9% for fistulas and 11.6% for grafts. Flow rate was significantly lower in abnormal shunts associated with a functional disorder or a morphologic complication (808 ml/min +/- 484) than in shunts associated with no abnormalities (1401 ml/min +/- 562). Receiver operating characteristic curves showed that a flow rate of 900 ml/min for fistulas and 1300 ml/min for grafts provided 81% and 79% sensitivity and 79% and 67% specificity, respectively. A functional disorder or a morphologic complication was associated with all fistulas and grafts in which flow rates were lower than 500 ml/min and 800 ml/min, respectively.  (+info)

Prospective randomised trial of distal arteriovenous fistula as an adjunct to femoro-infrapopliteal PTFE bypass. (5/955)

OBJECTIVES: To compare graft patency and limb salvage rate following femoro-infrapopliteal bypass using ePTFE grafts with and without the addition of adjuvant arterio-venous fistula. DESIGN: A prospectively randomised controlled trial. MATERIALS: Patients referred to two teaching hospital vascular surgery units in the U.K. for the treatment of critical limb ischaemia. METHODS: Eighty-seven patients (M:F; 2.3:1) undergoing 89 femoro-intrapopliteal bypass operations with ePTFE grafts for critical limb ischaemia were randomly allocated to have AVF included in the operative procedure (n = 48) or to a control group without AVF (n = 41). An interposition vein-cuff was incorporated at the distal anastomosis in all patients. RESULTS: The cumulative rates of primary patency and limb salvage at 1-year after operation for patients with AVF were 55.2% and 54.1% compared to 53.4% and 43.2%, respectively, for the control group. The differences between the AVF and control groups did not reach statistical significance, in terms of either graft patency or limb salvage, at any stage after operation (Log-Rank test). CONCLUSIONS: AVF confers no additional significant clinical advantage over interposition vein cuff in patients having femoro-infrapopliteal bypass with ePTFE grants for critical limb ischaemia.  (+info)

Homocyst(e)ine and vascular access complications in haemodialysis patients: insights into a complex metabolic relationship. (6/955)

BACKGROUND: As elevated total homocyst(e)ine (tHcy) is associated with increased risk of vascular thrombosis, we hypothesized that the elevated levels of tHcy seen in patients on haemodialysis may be associated with an increased risk of thrombosis of native arteriovenous fistulae (vascular access failure). Our study was designed to investigate the relationship between tHcy and vascular access failure. The relationship between tHcy and mortality was explored as a secondary analysis. METHODS: The study comprised a cross-sectional analysis of 96 haemodialysis patients at a single university-affiliated hospital and a subsequent 9-month prospective follow-up of 88 of the 96 patients. RESULTS: Levels of tHcy (median 30 micromol/l) were elevated. In the initial cross-sectional sample, there was an inverse relationship between tHcy and history of vascular access failure which was not observed in the prospective study. Variables influencing the risk of vascular access failure in the prospective study included history of previous vascular access failure (RR=2.93, P=0.03), use of antiplatelet agents (RR=0.13, P=0.01), increased urea reduction ratio (RR=0.55 for a 5% increase, P=0.01) and increased weight (RR=0.61 for a 10 kg increase, P=0.02). Secondary analysis showed an unexpected inverse relationship between tHcy and mortality (RR=0.033 for 1 log increase in tHcy, P=0.006), such that the lower levels of tHcy were associated with an increased risk of death in short-term follow-up. CONCLUSION: We did not demonstrate a relationship between tHcy and risk of vascular access failure. Patients with the lowest levels of tHcy appeared to be at increased risk of death in this short-term follow-up. The relationship of tHcy to vascular access complications and death in haemodialysis patients appears complex and requires further study.  (+info)

Effects of arteriovenous fistulas on cardiac oxygen supply and demand. (7/955)

BACKGROUND: Arteriovenous (AV) fistulas used for hemodialysis access may affect cardiac load by increasing the preload while decreasing the afterload. In dogs, AV fistulas have also been shown to affect coronary perfusion negatively. We investigated the net effect of AV fistulas on cardiac oxygen supply and demand. METHODS: Aortic pressure waves were reconstructed from finger pressure recordings obtained on the nonfistula arm using a wave-form filter. Changes in systolic, mean, and diastolic aortic pressure were calculated, together with changes in heart rate (HR), stroke volume (SV), cardiac output (CO), and systemic vascular resistance (SVR) during a 60-second compression of AV fistulas in 10 patients. Changes in cardiac supply and demand were estimated by calculating the area under the aortic pressure curve during diastole [diastolic pressure time index (DPTI)] and systole [systolic pressure time index (SPTI)], respectively. RESULTS: During fistula compression, systolic, mean and diastolic pressure increased by 4.2 +/- 4.3, 2.6 +/- 3.0, and 2.8 +/- 2.9 mm Hg (mean +/- SD, all P < 0.05). The HR decreased by 3.8 +/- 2.5 beats per minute (P < 0.01), and SV decreased 3.7 +/- 6.1% (NS). CO decreased 9.4 +/- 8.6%, and SVR increased 14.3 +/- 11.7% (both P < 0.05). The SPTI increased by 1.5 +/- 1.5 mm Hg.sec (P < 0.01), and the DPTI increased by 7.6 +/- 8.1 mm Hg.sec (14.8% increase, P < 0.05) during compression. The ratio of supply and demand (DPTI/SPTI) improved by 13.5 +/- 13.0% (P < 0.01) when the fistula was compressed. CONCLUSION: AV fistulas have a small effect on left ventricular oxygen demand, but decrease cardiac oxygen supply considerably.  (+info)

Differential regulation of IGF-I, its receptor and GH receptor mRNAs in the right ventricle and caval vein in volume-loaded genetically hypertensive and normotensive rats. (8/955)

It has been suggested, mainly by in vitro findings, that cardiovascular tissue in the spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHR) should be more prone to proliferate/hypertrophy than that of the Wistar-Kyoto rat (WKY). The present study tests the hypothesis that the tissue of the low-pressure compartment in SHR, being structurally similar to that of the WKY, shows an increased growth response due to activation of the GH-IGF-I system. An aortocaval fistula (ACF) was induced in 64 SHR and WKY male rats and 44 rats served as controls. They were all followed for 1, 2, 4 and 7 days after surgery. In separate groups of SHR (n=4) and WKY (n=3), central venous pressure was measured by telemetry recordings prior to opening of the fistula and for up to 16 h post-surgery. Systolic blood pressure was measured during the week post-surgery. The right ventricular (RV) and the caval vein IGF-I mRNA and RV IGF-I receptor and GH receptor mRNAs were quantitated by means of solution hybridisation assay. In rats with ACF the systolic blood pressure decreased, approximately 29% in SHR and 16% in WKY between 1 and 7 days post-surgery (P<0.05, n=5-6 in each group). SHR with ACF showed a transient elevation in central venous pressure vs WKY. Within the week following fistula induction both strains showed a similar, pronounced increase in RV hypertrophy. SHR with ACF showed a smaller, or even blunted, overall response with respect to activation of the GH-IGF-I system compared with WKY, the latter showing clear-cut elevation of gene expressions. Two days after shunt opening in SHR, RV and caval vein IGF-I mRNA increased by 57% and 108% (P<0.05 for both, n=5-6 in each group) respectively, and these expressions were then turned off, whereas RV GH receptor and IGF-I receptor mRNA expression remained unaffected compared with WKY rats. WKY rats showed on average a later and a greater response of GH-IGF-I system mRNA expression vs SHR. The present in vivo study suggests that the SHR requires less activation of the GH-IGF-I system for creating a given adaptive structural growth response.  (+info)

Objective: To investigate the reason of autogenous arteriovenous fistula failure by analyzing the clinical data of 32 hemodialysis patients in the Dep..
The arteriovenous fistula is considered to be the gold standard form of access for haemodialysis patients, however only 37% of haemodialysis patients have this form of access. A possible explanation for this could be the high fistula failure rate due to the lack of maturation. Therefore interventions aimed at enhancing fistula maturation are warranted. One such intervention could be forearm exercise, however this recommendation is not evidence based. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to investigate whether a program of post operative progressive hand grip exercise can improve fistula maturation ...

Two-stage transposed brachiobasilic arteriovenous fistula is a common procedure after brachiobasilic fistula (BBF) creation. Different techniques can be used for basilic vein transposition but few comparative literature reports are available. The aim of our study was to compare two different techniques for basilic vein transposition. The first maintains the BBF anastomosis and the basilic vein is placed in a subcutaneous pocket (BBAVF). The second transects the basilic vein at the BBF anastomosis and tunnels it superficially, with a new BBF in the brachial artery (BBAVFTn). From 2009 to 2014, all patients who underwent basilic vein superficialization were treated by one of the two techniques, recorded in a dedicated database and retrospectively reviewed. The surgeon chose the technique on the basis of personal preference. The two techniques were compared in terms of perioperative complications, length of hospital stay, time of cannulation, ease of cannulation, and long-term patency. Eighty ...
Patients with end stage renal disease are at 18-20 times greater risk of dying from cardiovascular disease as the general population. Both traditional and non-traditional cardiovascular risk factors are thought to be important. Of the non-tradtional cardiovascular risk factors, creation of an arteriovenous fistula or graft for the purposes of a blood access for hemodialysis may contribute to an elevation in BNP and left ventricular hypertrophy - both factors that have been associated with an increased risk of mortality Prior to access creation and at one month and one year post access creation - samples for BNP will be collected Prior to access creation and at one year post access creation - echocardiography will be ...
Little is known about the targets and expectations of practicing nephrologists with regard to timing of preemptive AV access surgery and how these relate to actual observed practice patterns in clinical care. We administered a 8-question survey to assess nephrologists expectations for preemptive vascular access placement to 53 practicing nephrologists in California. We performed a retrospective chart review of 116 patients who underwent preemptive vascular access placement at a large academic medical center and examined progression to ESRD. According to our survey of nephrologists, most aimed to have preemptive vascular access created about 6 months prior to start of ESRD or when the chances of ESRD within the next year is two-thirds or greater. The estimated GFR level at which they believe match these conditions is approximately 18 ml/min/1.73 m2. Among the 116 patients with CKD who underwent preemptive vascular access creation, the mean estimated GFR at the time of access creation was 16.1 (6.8) ml
BioAssay record AID 698773 submitted by ChEMBL: Antithrombotic activity in Sprague-Dawley rat arteriovenous shunt model assessed as reduction of thrombus dry weight at 30 mg/kg, po qd for 5 consecutive days.
Hemodialysis vascular access is the lifeline for patients on hemodialysis. Unfortunately, because of its poor patency and significant complication rate, it is also the Achilles heel of hemodialysis. For example, the current unassisted arteriovenous fistula (AVF) maturation rate is only 40% between 6 and 9 months, and the 1-year unassisted patency for polytetrafluoroethylene grafts is 23%. Despite the magnitude of the clinical problem, relatively few new and effective therapies have been introduced into this field over the last two decades, resulting in a stagnation of vascular access care. We believe that an important barrier to developing new and effective therapies is the current lack of consensus among the different vascular access stakeholder groups (information on project structure below) regarding acceptable clinical trial end points for vascular access trials. Achieving such a consensus would result in a better defined product development pathway, which is a critical step to stimulate ...

Vascular access dysfunction is the leading cause of morbidity amongst patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and is a key performance indicator for haemodialysis service provision [1]. Complications of vascular access are responsible for over 20% of all hospitalisations in patients on haemodialysis and account for one-third of all inpatient renal bed use [2].. Autologous arteriovenous fistulae (AVFs) are the vascular access modality of choice [1,3] with fewer infective and thrombotic complications than the alternatives [1,4]: tunnelled central venous catheters (TCVCs) and prosthetic arteriovenous grafts (AVGs). The major limitations to native AVF usage are a 6 to 8 week maturation lag from creation to first cannulation and 30 to 50% early failure rate [5,6]. Unfortunately, due to a combination of late referral, primary access failure and acute presentation of renal failure, 40 to 50% of incident patients do not have a functioning AVF when they commence dialysis [3,7,8]. Given the ...
Hemodialysis requires frequent access to the patients blood stream (vascular system). Vascular access has been called the Achilles Heel of hemodialysis care. Hemodialysis vascular access procedures and associated costs come to $8,000-10,000 per patient per year. This amount represents approximately 25 percent of total ESRD medical costs. The most common problems are stenosis (narrowing of graft/blood vessel), infection, and thrombosis (clotting). At present, three types of vascular access are predominant: AV (arteriovenous) fistulas, AV grafts, and catheters. AV fistulas are surgically created by connecting a patients own artery and vein, usually in the forearm. AV fistulas have the lowest rate of complications, but take from several weeks to several months to mature, heal, and develop in size. Over time, an AV fistula becomes large enough to accommodate the needles required for hemodialysis. AV grafts are also created surgically, but use a synthetic blood vessel to connect the vein and ...
This study shows that in France, where the rate of predialysis AV access placement is relatively high, nonfunctional AV access at hemodialysis initiation is common and does not appear to have decreased over time. A substantial percentage of patients with nonfunctional AV access at first hemodialysis may never acquire a functional AV access which is associated with increased mortality risk. In contrast, the outcome of patients with a nonfunctional AV access converting to a functional one appears similar to that of those starting with a functional AV access. These findings have important implications for clinical practice and public health policies.. The 9% frequency of nonfunctional AV access at hemodialysis initiation in our study is of the same order of magnitude as that reported in Canada (9%) [4], but lower than in the US (18%) [2, 3]. Nevertheless, the relative weight of nonfunctional AV accesses among all those created predialysis was much lower in France than in North America. About 16% of ...

In a large international cohort of patients commencing hemodialysis therapy, we found that the risk of noninfectious complications leading to access-related procedures and the risk of sepsis or access infection requiring medical intervention were both high during the first 3-6 months after access placement or a previous access complication. Risk quickly declined over time in all forms of hemodialysis access. These risks were higher with catheters and grafts than with fistulas, and the rates of decline over time were independent of individual comorbid conditions, countries, or regions. The rates of potentially serious access-related infections were approximately 10 times lower than the rates for noninfectious complications. Beyond 3 months after access placement or a remedial access complication, these rates were lower than 0.2, 0.3, and 0.6 per 1000 access days with fistulas, grafts, and catheters, respectively, leading to extremely long estimated median time to infectious complications.. The ...
Flow Forward Medical has announced the issuance of US Patents 9,155,827, 9,539,380 and 9,555,174 for its Arteriovenous Fistula Eligibility (AFE) system.. The 827 and 380 patents protect methods for using blood pump systems to dilate peripheral veins prior to vascular access site surgery.. This proprietary technology utilizes rapid blood flow with low pulsatility to provide highly favorable conditions for vein dilation and maturation.. Flow Forward is developing medical devices that enable the use of these methods for the creation of both arteriovenous fistula (AVF) and arteriovenous graft (AVG) vascular access sites. The 174 patent protects these AFE System devices.. The success of vascular access surgery is highly dependent on the diameter of the veins and arteries used to create access sites.. By providing larger veins prior to construction of an access site, these methods could potentially increase patient eligibility for AVF and AVG surgery, increase AVF maturation rates, reduce AVF ...

METHODS: We conducted a retrospective chart review of all adult patients, age ,18 years seeing a nephrologist with a diagnosis of CKD stage 4 or 5 during the study period between 06/01/2011 and 08/31/2013 to evaluate the placement of an AV access, initiation of dialysis and we conducted a survey of providers about the process.. RESULTS: The 221 patients (56% female) in the study had median age of 66 years (interquartile range (IQR), 57-75) and were followed for a median of 1.26 years (IQR 0.6-1.68). At study entry, 81%had CKD stage 4 and 19% had CKD stage 5. By the end of study, 48 patients had initiated dialysis. Thirty-four of the patients started dialysis with a catheter (1 failed and 10 maturing AVFs), 9 with an AVF and 5 with an AVG. During the study period, 61 total AV accesses were placed (54 AVF and 7 AVG). A higher urinary protein/ creatinine ratio and a lower eGFR were associated with AV access placement and dialysis initiation. A greater number of nephrology visits were associated ...

Abstract:. Dialysis vascular access management in the United States changed significantly after National Kidney Foundation-Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative (NKF-KDOQI) clinical practice guidelines were first published in 1997. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service adopted these guidelines and in collaboration with the End-Stage Renal Disease Networks established the Fistula First Breakthrough Initiative (FFBI) in 2003 to improve the rate of arteriovenous fistula use over arteriovenous graft and central venous catheter in the dialysis population. The implementation of guidelines and FFBI has led to a significant increase in the arteriovenous fistula use in the prevalent dialysis population. The guidelines are criticized for being opinion based and often impractical. Over the past 2 decades, the patient population undergoing dialysis has become older with complex comorbidities and challenges for creating an ideal vascular access. Advancing knowledge about access pathophysiology, ...
Multiple superficial veins in different anatomical configurations exist in the elbow. The resulting variety of elbow arteriovenous fistulae (AVFs) is described in this paper. A classification of elbow AVF in nontransposed AVF, transposed AVF and multiple outflow AVF is proposed. The nontransposed brachiocephalic AVF has the lowest primary failure rate and a good medium-term survival particularly in the elderly. The simplest technique is an end-to-side anastomosis of the median cubital vein to the brachial artery. In cases of small upper arm veins, a perforating vein AVF, using multiple outflow tracts, may be helpful to lower primary failure risk. In the era of vein mapping with portable ultrasound elbow AVF should be made when forearm veins are exhausted or too small. A side-to-side AVF in order to enhance retrograde flow in the median forearm vein seems rarely indicated, in particular considering the greater risk of steal and venous hypertension. A transposed brachiobasilic AVF is a tertiary ...

access remains the weak point of the renal replacement therapy chain, generating a significant burden for the patient and the healthcare system. Vascular access morbidity, including maturation failure, dysfunction (requiring repetitive intervention, revision, angioplasty), infection or more severe complications (swelling of access limb, steal syndrome, heart failure) is the third most frequent cause of hospitalisation in haemodialysis patients. Despite the technical advances in vascular access surgery, prosthesis development, imaging and monitoring, the autologous arteriovenous fistula (AVF) developed more than fifty years ago by Cimino and Brescia remains the gold standard providing best outcomes in both the short and long term. It is recognised worldwide from evidence-based and shared clinical experience that the native AVF has the most cost-effective and cost-utility ratio in terms of vascular access and for these reasons should be considered as the first vascular access option in almost ...

In a patient undergoing regular hemodialysis through an arteriovenous fistula access, pleural effusion is a known long term complication. However, a unilateral hemothorax is relatively uncommon. Here we report a 46 year old male, end-stage renal disease patient, on maintenance hemodialysis, who presented with a giant brachiocephalic AV fistula in his left arm and progressive breathlessness. Radiological imaging revealed a left sided pleural effusion. Ultrasound guided aspiration revealed a hemorrhagic pleural fluid. A Doppler study of the fistula revealed a high velocity blood flow through the fistula, thereby establishing the cause of the unilateral hemothorax. Ligation of the fistula resulted in complete resolution of the hemothorax. The other possible causes for hemothorax in a dialysis patient are also discussed in this case report.
Vascular access choices in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients depend on a number of factors. A recent update was published in AJKD from the US DOPPS Practice Monitor with international comparisons. Corresponding author Dr Ronald Pisoni (RP) discusses this paper with Dr. Sean Kalloo (AJKDblog), AJKD Blog Contributor.. AJKDblog: Despite significant improvement in vascular access use for prevalent hemodialysis patients in the United States over the past 17 years, there has been no improvement in vascular access use for new hemodialysis starts, with nearly 80% initiating hemodialysis therapy with a central venous catheter (CVC). What are some of the factors involved with such a high rate of CVC use in the US?. RP: The Fistula First program recently transitioned to the Fistula First Catheter Last initiative to focus on the development of tools and resources to help dialysis facilities and clinicians reduce catheters and increase AV fistula rates in hemodialysis patients. The crux of this latter ...

Background. Absence of a permanent vascular access in most patients starting haemodialysis remains a cause of high morbidity and costs. This study obtained new clinical and colour Doppler ultrasound (CDU) data of a polyurethane vascular access graft (PVAG) proposing early post‐operative cannulation.. Methods. Baseline characteristics were determined in 15 patients and the PVAGs were evaluated prospectively including first cannulation, patency and complications. CDU was used post‐operatively and after 1 year for assessing graft morphology and access blood flow.. Results. PVAGs were cannulated at a median of 4 days post‐operatively. The 1‐year primary patency of the PVAG was 66.7%. During the 15 months observation three grafts thrombosed, one was replaced because of infection and one because of ischaemia. CDU measurements at the feeding brachial artery revealed a mean initial access volume flow of 773±89 ml/min, being significantly higher in patients without thrombosis compared to ...

The search for such therapies largely relies on evaluation of vascular responses and putative therapies in experimental AVFs. We studied an AVF in mice with chronic kidney disease (CKD). We demonstrate numerous stressors in the vein of the AVF-CKD group, including pathological shear, mitogenic, inflammatory, and hypoxia-reoxygenation stress. Because stress promotes premature senescence, we examined whether senescence is induced in the vein of the AVF-CKD model. We ...
In 1997, at least $1.2 billion was spent by CMS on the establishment and maintenance of vascular angioaccess for the approximately 250,000 Medicare-eligible beneficiaries on maintenance hemodialysis (22). Moreover, vascular access-related hospitalizations are the most frequent DRG for Medicare-eligible ESRD patients, accounting for 45% of hospitalizations in 1995 through 1997 (22). Therefore, expenditures for vascular access are the single greatest categorical expense for ESRD care in the United States. In response to suggestions of unnecessary variability in the choice of vascular angioaccess (13) and the substantial financial and medical burden associated with this component of ESRD care, the National Kidney Foundation, Inc., developed and released evidence-based clinical practice guidelines (CPG) for vascular access for hemodialysis (1). First, the CPG recommended that an autologous fistula be established in preference to an AVG. Although more planning and time for placement and maturity is ...
0242]Expected Results of AV Fistula Study. It is expected that patients treated with the implantable material of the present invention as described above will display one or more indicia of an enhancement of fistula maturation and/or of prevention of fistula failure to mature. Specifically, the treated patients individually will display, for example, an improved blood flow, up to a flow sufficient for dialysis (e.g., a blood flow within the range of 35-500 mL/min and preferably at least 350 ml/min) and/or an improved ability to repeatedly cannulate the fistula for dialysis. Another of the indicia of fistula maturation is vein wall thickness; a successfully mature or maturing fistula exhibits vein wall thickening. This will be measured using intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) according to standard clinical practices. Briefly, IVUS will be used to measure vein wall thickness and delineate between intimal and medial thickness. The treated or control fistula will be cannulated and the ultrasound probe ...

There is wide disagreement among studies that have evaluated the accuracy of urea recirculation (UR) in detecting vascular access stenosis. The 3-site method (UR3) has been discredited and replaced by the 2-site method (UR2), but few studies have evaluated UR2. Methods. We compared the accuracies of UR2 and UR3 in detecting stenosis in 59 haemodialysis patients during a 12-month period. All patients were studied without regard to clinical suspicion of stenosis. Stenosis (≤ 50% luminal narrowing) was diagnosed by duplex ultrasound and confirmed by angiography. The reproducibility of UR2 was determined by computing its total standard ...

Methods and apparatus are provided for temporarily excluding an aneurysm or an arterio-venous fistula from a flow path by transluminally disposing a hollow balloon catheter structure within the aneurysm so that its proximal and distal ends extend past the aneurysm while maintaining continuity of the flow path, and then injecting a synthetic molding material or a biological hardening agent into the aneurysm cavity to cause solidification of the volume within the cavity. Once the material within the excluded aneurysm has solidified, the balloon catheter structure is deflated and removed, so that the hardened mass forms a new lining for the organ or vessel, and relieves the weakened tissue of the aneurysm or fistula from further flow-induced stress.
Normally blood flow begins in the arteries and travels to the veins through the capillaries, whereas AV fistulas bypass the capillaries. This can result in reduced blood supply to the tissues. AV fistula can also be created surgically and used during dialysis for people with kidney failure. Dialysis requires access to the cardiovascular system and over half of the people who need it use AV fistulas, which creates a larger and tougher blood vessel that can tolerate multiple needle punctures needed for dialysis. AV fistula, whether created surgically or caused by disease or trauma, should be monitored carefully since it can lead to severe complications. ...

The Dardik laboratory uses modern molecular techniques to study the diseases and therapeutics that vascular surgeons care for in their patients. As part of Yales Vascular Biology and Therapeutics program, we take advantage of our rich collaborative environment to push our field forward, focusing on basic and translational research that is relevant to our patients.. A major focus of our laboratory is to understand the healing and function of blood vessels and synthetic blood vessel substitutes and patches that are used in vascular reconstruction. We are currently trying to understand the fundamental molecular mechanisms by which vein graft adaptation and arteriovenous fistula maturation result in positive remodeling and successful adaptation to the arterial and fistula environments, yet often proceed, in the long-term, to neointimal hyperplasia and graft failure. We are focusing on the role of vascular identity in controlling the response to vascular intervention; the laboratory made the ...

Hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis are the two possible choices in chronic renal disease in the uremic stage. Native arteriovenous fistula is susceptible to complications, some posing vital risk and requiring prompt treatment. We present the case of a patient undergoing hemodialysis on native AVF. An aneurism developed progressively on the arterialized cephalic vein. The AVF was abolished by closing the arteriotomy with a venous patch and excising the aneurismal venous segment. The pathology exam of the surgical specimen showed unequal vessel wall thickness due to hyperplasia of the media and subintimal space, with calcifications within the hyperplastic media.

About one hour or less is needed in the recovery room after a vascular access procedure. When discharged, you should rest at home for the remainder of the day and may resume your usual activities the following day, but should avoid lifting heavy objects. After having a catheter placed you may experience some bruising, swelling, and tenderness in the chest, neck, or shoulder, but these symptoms resolve over about five days. Pain medication may help during this time. This catheter may remain in place for one to two weeks. Flushing the catheter at a stated interval with a heparin flush solution may help keep blood clots from forming and obstructing the catheter.. ...
What is it?. If your kidneys fail, unless and until you have a successful kidney transplant, you will need dialysis therapy to clean and filter your blood. The first step is establishing dialysis access one of four ways: • A tunneled catheter in your neck-temporary, because the possibility of infection is high.. • An AV fistula-taking a piece of a vein from your arm or leg and sewing it into a nearby artery, and allowing the sewn-in vein to enlarge and become thicker, like an artery. Considered the best option because it has the lowest risk of infection.. • An AV graft-the sewing of a prosthetic graft between an artery and vein in your arm or leg. The preferred option if your veins are too small for an AV fistula. AV grafts tend to close more quickly and are more prone to infection because they are not formed from natural tissue.. • Peritoneal dialysis-placement of a small tube, called a cannula, in your abdomen to allow the use of the lining of the abdomen (peritoneum) to filter your ...

Can children undergoing ophthalmologic examinations under anesthesia be safely anesthetized without using an IV line? Michael M Vigoda, Azeema Latiff, Timothy G Murray, Jacqueline L Tutiven, Audina M Berrocal, Steven GayerBascom Palmer Eye Institute, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami, FL, USAPurpose: To document that with proper patient and procedure selection, children undergoing general inhalational anesthesia for ophthalmologic exams (with or without photos, ultrasound, laser treatment, peri-ocular injection of chemotherapy, suture removal, and/or replacement of ocular prosthesis) can be safely anesthetized without the use of an intravenous (IV) line. Children are rarely anesthetized without IV access placement. We performed a retrospective study to determine our incidence of IV access placement during examinations under anesthesia (EUA) and the incidence of adverse events that required intraoperative IV access placement.Methods: Data collected from our operating room (OR)

We report the first European case of cerebral iodized lipid embolism post transcatheter arterial embolization for hepatocellular carcinoma. Lipiodol emboli and corresponding multifocal brain ischemia were documented with computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) in the acutely symptomatic patient. Transcranial Doppler sonography with contrast indicated a right-to-left shunt, while on a follow-up CT scan lipiodol embolization was detected in both lungs. Dilated pulmonary vessels and thick vascular channels were seen in the vicinity of the right diaphragm suggestive of pulmonary arteriovenous shunt. The patient symptoms regressed with supportive care alone, but he died 5 months later due to hepatic failure unrelated to the procedure.
Introduction: Arteriovenous fistula (AVF) operation is recognized a gold standard of hemodialysis for end-stage renal disease. Because various complications may occur during perioperative period, medical care plays an important role in improving the possibility of AVF operation. The objective of the study was to explore the effect of the mode of multiple disciplinary team (MDT) medical care on the patients with end-stage renal disease treated by arteriovenous fistula (AVF) operation. Method: 98 patients with end-stage renal disease under the AVF operation were divided into observation group and control group. The control group was performed with regular medical care and for the observation group was treated under the mode of MDT medical care. Complications after operation, hospitalized time and medical satisfaction were comprehensively compared between the both groups. Results: The overall complications including swelling, bleeding, infection and thrombosis in observation group accounted for 5%, however
Patients who develop kidney failure require renal replacement therapy (RRT) in order to survive. Renal transplantation is the best treatment but is often not forthcoming. Many patients therefore require haemodialysis treatment, for which a means of vascular access (VA) is necessary. There are substantial morbidity, mortality and cost benefits from using arteriovenous fistulae (AVF) rather than central venous catheters (CVC) for this purpose.. Despite audit standards recommending that most patients should dialyse using AVF there has been longstanding, marked variation between centres in Scotland and further afield as to the proportions of patients who dialyse using each VA modality. Many studies have documented this variation and its clinical consequences, but little progress has been achieved over more than a decade of registry-documented practice. The present study aims to understand this variation using systems approaches to delineate the structure of VA clinical pathways in Scotland and the ...
The doctors also told me that I was going to need surgery to give me dialysis access. They call what this surgery would give me an AV Fistula. Basically, they tie an artery and vein together in the forearm. The extra blood flow from the artery causes the vein to grow larger and to become tougher. Since dialysis requires that your blood be removed, filtered, and then replaced, you have to have both vein and artery access for the dialysis needles. The doctors always use a single vein for this access, if possible. The best type of access that can be created is an AV Fistula (which is all natural). There is no graft or stint that has to be put in, which means a quick recovery time from the surgery and that the fistula will have a long life (as there is nothing artificial to wear out). The surgery was scheduled for June 13 ...
