Right atrial bypass grafting for central venous obstruction associated with dialysis access: another treatment option. (1/217)

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)

Totally implantable central venous access ports for high-dose chemotherapy administration and autologous stem cell transplantation: analysis of overall and septic complications in 68 cases using a single type of device. (2/217)

Sixty-eight patients suffering from breast cancer, ovarian cancer, lymphoma or multiple myeloma were treated with high-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplantation. They underwent placement of a central venous port via the subclavian vein for delivery of chemotherapy and reinfusion of stem cells. All patients were followed prospectively for device-related and overall complications, comprising a total of 18,213 days in situ (median: 267 days, range: 90-480). One patient experienced a pneumothorax (1.4%) spontaneously resolved, as an acute toxicity. Two patients (2.8%, 0.1 episodes/1000 days of use) were forced to have the port removed due to infection, caused by Streptococcus mitis in one case, while the causative agent was not identified by laboratory tests in the second. The other 66 patients completed the therapeutic programme, including peripheral stem cell reinfusions and supportive care, such as i.v. antibiotics, antiemetics or fluid administration and blood sample collection, without additional complications. In conclusion, the use of totally implantable central venous access ports has resulted in good long-term access to central veins, in spite of the severe neutropenia and increased septic risk of this category of oncology patients.  (+info)

Central venous injuries of the subclavian-jugular and innominate-caval confluences. (3/217)

Injuries to the central venous system can result from penetrating trauma or iatrogenic causes. Injuries to major venous confluences can be particularly problematic, because the clavicle and sternum seriously limit exposure of the injury site. We report our institution's experience with central venous injuries of the subclavian-jugular and innominate-caval venous confluences. Significant injuries of the subclavian-jugular venous confluence frequently result from penetrating trauma, while injuries to the innominate-caval confluence are usually catheter-related. Median sternotomy provides adequate exposure of the innominate-caval confluence, while exposure of the subclavian-jugular venous confluence requires extension of the median sternotomy incision into the neck and resection of the clavicle. The literature is reviewed.  (+info)

Management of penetrating cervicomediastinal venous trauma. (4/217)

OBJECTIVES: to evaluate the results of management of penetrating cervicomediastinal venous trauma. DESIGN: retrospective study. Materials forty-nine consecutive patients with cervical and thoracic venous injuries treated at a tertiary hospital between 1991 and 1997. Method patients identified from a computerised database and data extracted from case records. RESULTS: forty-five patients were male and the mean age was 25.3 years. Forty injuries were due to stabs and 9 to gunshots. 22 patients were shocked, 25 actively bleeding and 31 were anaemic. Veins injured were internal jugular in 25, subclavian in 15, brachiocephalic in 6, and superior vena cava in 3. Injured veins were ligated in 25 cases and repaired by lateral suture in 22. No complex repairs were performed. There were 8 perioperative deaths and 5 cases of transient postoperative oedema. Venous ligation was not associated with increased risk of postoperative oedema. CONCLUSIONS: ligation is an acceptable form of treatment of cervicomediastinal venous injuries in the presence of haemodynamic instability, or where complex methods of repair would otherwise be necessary.  (+info)

Exchange of pacing or defibrillator leads following laser sheath extraction of non-functional leads in patients with ipsilateral obstructed venous access. (5/217)

Occlusion of the subclavian or brachiocephalic vein in pacemaker or defibrillator patients prohibits ipsilateral implantation of new leads with standard techniques in the event of lead malfunction. Three patients are presented in whom laser sheath extraction of a non-functional lead was performed in order to recanalise the occluded vein and to secure a route for implantation of new leads. This technique avoids abandoning a useful subpectoral site for pacing or defibrillator therapy. The laser sheath does not affect normally functioning leads at the same site.  (+info)

Surgical intervention is not required for all patients with subclavian vein thrombosis. (6/217)

PURPOSE: The role of thoracic outlet decompression in the treatment of primary axillary-subclavian vein thrombosis remains controversial. The timing and indications for surgery are not well defined, and thoracic outlet procedures may be associated with infrequent, but significant, morbidity. We examined the outcomes of patients treated with or without surgery after the results of initial thrombolytic therapy and a short period of outpatient anticoagulation. METHODS: Patients suspected of having a primary deep venous thrombosis underwent an urgent color-flow venous duplex ultrasound scan, followed by a venogram and catheter-directed thrombolysis. They were then converted from heparin to outpatient warfarin. Patients who remained asymptomatic received anticoagulants for 3 months. Patients who, at 4 weeks, had persistent symptoms of venous hypertension and positional obstruction of the subclavian vein, venous collaterals, or both demonstrated by means of venogram underwent thoracic outlet decompression and postoperative anticoagulation for 1 month. RESULTS: Twenty-two patients were treated between June 1996 and June 1999. Of the 18 patients who received catheter-directed thrombolysis, complete patency was achieved in eight patients (44%), and partial patency was achieved in the remaining 10 patients (56%). Nine of 22 patients (41%) did not require surgery, and the remaining 13 patients underwent thoracic outlet decompression through a supraclavicular approach with scalenectomy, first-rib resection, and venolysis. Recurrent thrombosis developed in only one patient during the immediate period of anticoagulation. Eleven of 13 patients (85%) treated with surgery and eight of nine patients (89%) treated without surgery sustained durable relief of their symptoms and a return to their baseline level of physical activity. All patients who underwent surgery maintained their venous patency on follow-up duplex scanning imaging. CONCLUSION: Not all patients with primary axillary-subclavian vein thrombosis require surgical intervention. A period of observation while patients are receiving oral anticoagulation for at least 1 month allows the selection of patients who will do well with nonoperative therapy. Patients with persistent symptoms and venous obstruction should be offered thoracic outlet decompression. Chronic anticoagulation is not required in these patients.  (+info)

Claviculectomy for subclavian venous repair: long-term functional results. (7/217)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to determine the long-term functional results after medial claviculectomy and venous patch angioplasty or bypass grafting using internal jugular vein after incomplete thrombolysis of effort thrombosis of the subclavian vein. METHODS: The records of 11 patients with effort thrombosis who were treated over the past 9 years were reviewed. Patients have been followed up between 3 and 9 years at 6-month intervals with duplex imaging and contrast venography when indicated and have had an orthopedic evaluation of their shoulder function. RESULTS: All reconstructed veins are patent, and only one patient complains of any arm swelling after prolonged usage. This patient is one of three with postphlebitic changes at the site of repair and has similar findings in her basilic vein. All patients have returned to their prethrombosis vocation without limitation. Four of the 11 patients have jobs requiring heavy physical labor. No patient describes any limitations of shoulder function, but one man who works as a diesel mechanic complains of shoulder aching with overuse with repetitive pulling. Three patients describe upper extremity paresthesias when lying on the operated side. Two patients (one man and one woman) are bothered by the large scar and indentation at the site of the incision. Every patient considers the overall result completely successful from a functional standpoint. CONCLUSIONS: Early subclavian venous repair performed through a medial claviculectomy is a durable operation with excellent long-term functional results. Half of the patients noted minor but significant symptoms, but all are uniformly able to return to normal function.  (+info)

Identification of microemboli during haemodialysis using Doppler ultrasound. (8/217)

BACKGROUND: Doppler ultrasound methods were used during haemodialysis sessions for the detection of microemboli and determination of their origin. METHODS: A 2-MHz ultrasound probe (Multidop X(4) DWL((TM))) was used to assess the number of microembolic signals (MES) in the subclavian vein downstream from the arteriovenous fistula before the dialysis session and over two periods of 15 min at the beginning and end of haemodialysis sessions in 25 patients without previous cardiovascular disease. A similar probe was used during in vitro studies to detect MES at different sites in the dialysis machine (before and downstream from the blood pump, and before and downstream from the air trap). RESULTS: No MES were detected during in vivo studies before haemodialysis sessions. MES were registered in all patients (100%) at the beginning and end of the haemodialysis procedure at an average of 12.7+/-9 and 16. 7+/-11.5 signals/min respectively. The average intensity of MES was 19.2+/-5.0 dB and 19.4+/-3.9 dB respectively. No MES were detected on the arterial line during in vitro studies. In contrast, 19+/-6 MES/min were detected after the blood pump, 13+/-4.2 before the air trap, and 16.5+/-5.5 thereafter. CONCLUSIONS: In all patients, MES were recorded during haemodialysis sessions in the drainage vein from arteriovenous fistulae. The results of in vitro studies indicate that MES are formed by the blood pump of the haemodialysis machine. The intensity of the MES suggests that they correspond to synthetic particles or microbubbles, which are not detected by the air trap. The final destination of these microbubbles will be assessed in further studies.  (+info)

N2 - Between February 1988 and March 1991, 28 patients with effort thrombosis of the subclavian vein were treated with a combined approach of thrombolytic therapy followed by surgical therapy. Three categories were seen: group I (six patients), acute stage (less than 5 days); group II (seven patients), subacute stage (6 days to 2 weeks); and group III (15 patients), chronic stage (more than 2 weeks). Group III was divided into two subgroups: subgroup A, seven patients with a short-obstructed segment (, 1/2 inch), and subgroup B, eight patients with a long-obstructed segment (1 to 6 inches). During venography a catheter is placed within the thrombus for continuous infusion of urokinase (3000 U/kg/hr) for 12 to 24 hours. After complete clot lysis, resection of the first rib via a subclavicular approach is undertaken. ...
Subclavian venous catheterization is common technique for a variety of purposes, but this procedure is associated with complications that include damage to the lung, pleura, thoracic duct, nerve and subclavian artery. We recently encountered a case of the tracheal puncture and endotracheal cuff perforation during the subclavian catheterization in a 67-year-old female who was scheduled for tracheal reconstruction. Tidal volume was escaping from around the endotracheal tube during the subclavian catheterization, however, repeated inflation of the cuff failed to maintain the necessary cuff pressure to seal the trachea. After the operation, by using the fiberoptic bronchoscope and injecting dye into the cuff, we confirmed the site of tracheal puncture and endotracheal cuff perforation which caused by the introducer needle of the central venous kit. We suggest that tracheal puncture and endotracheal cuff perforation be added to the list of complication of subclavian catheterization. This complication ...
Figures 1 and 2 show the relevant anatomy of the subclavian vein. It may be cannulated on the right or the left side. The chapter shows cannulation on the right side. On the right, the subclavian vein courses behind the medial third of the clavicle and joins the internal jugular vein to drain into the superior vena cava. It lies anterior and inferior to the subclavian artery. The dome of the right lung lies behind the vessels. Ultrasound is used to confirm the patency of the vein and location. The same modified Seldinger technique is used as described in the preceding Chapter 133. The patient is placed in a supine position. A rolled towel or sheet is placed in the interscapular area to allow the shoulder to drop to the side away from the infraclavicular site (figures 1 and 3). The patient is placed in a 20-degree Trendelenburg position (head down) in order to minimize the risk of air embolism and increase the size of the vein. The head is turned slightly to the opposite side. After installation ...
BACKGROUND: Adipose tissue dysfunction is associated with inflammation, type 2 diabetes mellitus and vascular diseases. Visceral adipose tissue (VAT)-derived adipokines, which are released in the portal circulation may influence liver metabolism. OBJECTIVES: (1) To estimate the contribution of VAT and subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) on adipokine levels by measuring differences in adipokine concentrations between the portal draining inferior mesenteric vein and the subclavian vein. (2) To determine the relation of both VAT and SAT quantity and composition to mesenteric and systemic concentrations of adipokines. DESIGN: Cross-sectional cohort study. SUBJECTS: A total of 32 patients undergoing abdominal aortic surgery. MEASUREMENTS: A panel of 18 adipokines was measured in perioperatively obtained blood samples from the subclavian vein and the inferior mesenteric vein. Adipocyte size, macrophage infiltration and capillary density were measured in subcutaneous and mesenteric adipose tissue biopsies; SAT
In 1875 Paget described subclavian vein thrombosis and in 1884 Schröetter proposed that subclavian vein thrombosis was the result of excessive upper extremity activity. In 1949, the surgeon Hughes coined the term Paget-Schröetter syndrome for patients with occlusion of the subclavian vein following overuse of the upper extremity [1, 3, 6].. DVT occurs more commonly in the veins of the pelvis or the lower extremities. In two previous reports, the incidence of upper extremity DVT has been cited as occurring in approximately 4 to 11 % of all cases of thromboembolism. DVT is classified as either primary or secondary, depending of the cause of the thrombus. Primary or idiopathic upper extremity DVT is less common than secondary, only accounting for 2 in 100,000 cases per year [7, 8]. Secondary DVT is more common and can be caused by central venous catheters, cardiac devices, neoplasias, or collagen diseases. Thrombosis of the upper extremity veins is usually related to effort in conjunction with ...
How to avoid central venous catheter malposition?. The safe use of ultrasound is now seen as standard of care. After vessel puncture and the guidewire is inserted the vessel should be scanned again with the ultrasound probe to ensure the guidewire is seen within the vessel. Using a longitudinal view you can also make sure the wire is passing down the vein and isnt sticking in the posterior wall.. The J tip of the guidewire could theoretically be angled to ensure the guidewire passes down the vein and towards the right atrium. For subclavian vein cannulation the J tip should be angled so the tip faces caudad to encourage a turn towards the right atrium. Inserting the guidewire with the needle bevel facing down could also potentially encourage the guidewire to enter the brachiocephalic vein and subsequently the SVC. For internal jugular vein cannulation the J tip could be angled to the tip faces medially, to discourage the wire from turning into the ipsilateral subclavian vein. However in reality ...

The team decided on ICD placement even though the procedure would be challenging due to the congenital anatomical anomaly. A bilateral upper-extremity venogram performed prior to the procedure demonstrated the presence of PLSVC with absent RSVC (Figure 4). Due to the absent RSVC, ICD access was attempted through the left subclavian vein rather than from the right. Unfortunately, an ICD lead could not be placed into a suitable position in the right ventricular apex. After much difficulty, a lead was positioned in the septal aspect of the right ventricular outflow tract but could not demonstrate acceptable sensing and pacing thresholds. Thus, the procedure was aborted and the patient was referred for subcutaneous ICD placement, which was completed without complications.. DISCUSSION. PLSVC is a rare congenital abnormality that is found in about 0.3% of the general population. Its incidence increases by 10- to 30-fold in patients with congenital heart disease.1-3. The fetal development of systemic ...

Each drop of semen represents a concentrate of lecithin, hormones, minerals and vitamins equal to 60 drops of blood. Hence, the loss of this fluid drains the blood of its best elements. Seminal fluid is potential nerve and brain nutriment and when not wasted of lost through involuntary emission, it is absorbed by lymphatics which line the seminal vesicles and carried to the recepaculum chyli, from where it ascends via the thoracic duct to the left subclavian vein prior to its entrance to the heart, and in this way lymphatically resorbed seminal fluuid enters the circulation. The conserved lecithin is then carried by the blood to nerve and brain cells, which require it for their nourishment and vital activity. FOr this reason, sexual losses, voluntarily or involunarily, rob the nerves and brain of nourishment; and, if they are excessive, lead to nervous and mental diseases. Since ancient times, it was known to physicians that the gonads or sex glands manufacture a vital substance which, if ...
Jean Pecquet (9 May 1622, Dieppe, Seine-Maritime - 26 February 1674) was a French scientist. He studied the expansion of air, wrote on psychology, and is also known for investigating the thoracic duct. Furthermore, he studied the nature of vision. He studied medicine at Montpelier, where he made the important discovery of the course of the lacteal vessels, including the receptaculum chyli, or reservoir of Pecquet, as it is sometimes called, and the termination of the principal lacteal vessel, the thoracic duct, into the left subclavian vein. He dissected the eye and measured its dimensions. Contrary to Edme Mariotte, he maintained that the retina, not the choroid, was the principal organ of vision. He wrote: Experimenta Nova Anatomica (Paris, 1651; English translation, as New Anatomical Experiments, 1653) De Circulatione Sanguinis et Chyli Motu (1653) De Thoracicis Lacteis (1653) Pecquet, cistern of, reservoir of - The receptaculum chyli.

The lymphatic system is a network of tubes throughout the entire body consisting of organs, ducts and nodes that filter fluid from the tissues, purifies it and empties it back into the bloodstream.. Its main role is to manage fluid levels in the body, remove toxins, waste, unwanted materials and deliver nutrients to the entire body and is the home to powerful bacteria killing, infection fighting, white blood cells.. As well as removing interstitial fluid from the tissues it absorbs and transports fatty acids and fats from the digestive system and transports white blood cells to and from the lymph nodes into the bone.. Two lymphatic trunks are located at the base of the neck connected to veins, which are responsible for draining the upper right side of the body and returning lymph to the blood stream via the right subclavian vein.. There are hundreds of lymph nodes in the human body located close to the lungs and heart as well as under the arms and groin area.. The largest lymphatic organ is the ...

Preclinical testing in rodent models is a ubiquitous part of modern biomedical research and commonly involves accessing the venous bloodstream for blood sampling and drug delivery. Manual tail vein cannulation is a time-consuming process and requires significant skill and training, particularly since improperly inserted needles can affect the experimental results and study outcomes. In this paper, we present a miniaturized, robotic medical device for automated, image-guided tail vein cannulations in rodent models. The device is composed of an actuated three degrees-of-freedom (DOFs) needle manipulator, three-dimensional (3D) near-infrared (NIR) stereo cameras, and an animal holding platform. Evaluating the system through a series of workspace simulations and free-space positioning tests, the device exhibited a sufficient work volume for the needle insertion task and submillimeter accuracy over the calibration targets. The results indicate that the device is capable of cannulating tail veins in ...

Ultrasound-guided CVC placement with a novel supraclavicular approach proved to be a noninferior method for central venous cannulation
Despite multiple advantages, subclavian vein (SCV) cannulation via the traditional landmark approach has become less used in comparison to ultrasound (US) guided internal jugular catheterization due to a higher rate of mechanical complications. A growing body of evidence indicates that SCV catheterization with real-time US guidance can be accomplished safely and efficiently. While several cannulation approaches with real-time US guidance have been described, available literature suggests that the infraclavicular, longitudinal in-plane technique may be preferred. This approach allows for direct visualization of needle advancement, which reduces risk of complications and improves successful placement. Infraclavicular SCV cannulation requires simultaneous use of US during needle advancement, but for an inexperienced operator, it is more easily learned compared to the traditional landmark approach. In this article, we review the evidence supporting the use of US guidance for SCV catheterization ...
The very most interesting thing for me, though, was in the Intensive Care Unit where I sometimes hang out after my shift to learn things from the truly awe inspiring docs who work there. When I walked in, the patient, a 60 year old woman with severe lung disease, morbid obesity and a really bad pneumonia was getting a central venous catheter put in to her subclavian vein for infusion of the various potions that she would need for surviving, were she to do that. Ultrasound was, of course, used to put the line in, which was great, because there was a lot of tissue covering the landmarks usually used to put in such lines and the ultrasound made sure that the needle went into a vein rather than an artery and avoided the lung. As we sat talking, the patients blood pressure started to fall. The ultrasound said that there was no pneumothorax, but it wasnt quite as good a picture as would be ideal, so we looked at the x-ray too, which took forever to be processed (it seemed like forever, but was ...
Hemodialysis port assembly including a port and a catheter assembly. The port includes an inlet septum subtended by an inlet plenum and an outlet septum subtended by an outlet plenum. The catheter assembly includes an inlet channel connected to the inlet plenum and an outlet channel connected to the outlet plenum. The port and catheter assembly are completely implanted in the chest of a patient with the port subcutaneous and the end of the catheter assembly remote from the port injected into the subclavian vein. The blood flow in this vein is in the direction away from the end of the catheter assembly. Near this remote end the catheter assembly or the inlet channel terminates in an inlet valve and the outlet channel terminates in an outlet valve. Each of these valves is essentially a flapper on which the blood is incident in a generally perpendicular direction so that its flow is substantially unimpeded. The outlet valve is spaced a small but effective distance from the inlet valve in the downstream

Apheresis or automated blood collection (ABC) is a procedure to remove and separate individual components of the blood such as stem cells, but also platelets. The remaining blood is then returned into the bloodstream of the patient. Apheresis may be performed via the veins of the arm. In general, however, a so called Shaldon or dialysis catheter is used. This catheter contains two lumens (channels) and is placed in a jugular or subclavian vein. The procedure does not cause pain or stress to the patient.

N2 - Peripheral venous access is indicated for the administration of fluids, drugs, or if nutrients when other routes are unavailable. Central venous access is indicated if peripheral access is unsuccessful or if hypertonic, irritant, or vasoconstrictor solutions are used. Because of anatomical variations, different peripheral cannulation sites are more appropriate in different age groups. The preferred sites for long-term central venous access in infants and children are the external jugular, facial, internal jugular, saphenous veins at the groin, and subclavian veins. The practical aspects of peripheral and central venous access and the complications are discussed..

METHODS: Using data gathered from 14 institutions, we performed a retrospective cohort study of patients. RESULTS: Real-time ultrasonography was used in 33% of attempts (N = 1,146). The subclavian vein (64%) was accessed preferentially for first site insertion. Real-time ultrasonography was less likely to be used for subclavian vein (odds ratio = 0.002; P , .0001) and more likely to be used when coagulopathy (international normalized ratio ,1.5) was present (odds ratio = 11.1; P = .03). The rate of mechanical complications was 3.5%. Real-time ultrasonography use was associated with greater procedural success rates on first-site attempt, but also with a greater risk of hemothorax.. CONCLUSION: Pediatric surgeons access preferentially the subclavian vein for central venous access, yet are less likely to use real-time ultrasonography at this site. Real-time ultrasonography was superior to the landmark techniques for the first-site procedure success, yet was associated with greater rates of ...
The cisterna chyli (or cysterna chyli, and etymologically more correct, receptaculum chyli) is a dilated sac at the lower end of the thoracic duct in most mammals into which lymph from the intestinal trunk and two lumbar lymphatic trunks flow. It receives fatty chyle from the intestines and thus acts as a conduit for the lipid products of digestion. It is the most common drainage trunk of most of the bodys lymphatics. The cisterna chyli is a retro-peritoneal structure. In humans, it is located posterior to the abdominal aorta on the anterior aspect of the bodies of the first and second lumbar vertebrae (L1 and L2). There it forms the beginning of the primary lymph vessel, the thoracic duct, which transports lymph and chyle from the abdomen via the aortic opening of the diaphragm up to the junction of left subclavian vein and internal jugular veins. In dogs, it is located to the left and often ventral to the aorta; in cats it is left and dorsal; in guinea pigs it runs to the left and drains into ...
Persistence of a left sided superior vena cava (SVC) is the most common thoracic venous congenital anomaly. It results from obliteration of the proximal part of the right anterior and the right common cardinal veins. The left anterior cardinal vein persists, forming a left sided vena cava which drains into the coronary sinus.. A 38 year old woman with a history of idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy and left bundle branch block underwent placement of a biventricular pacemaker. She was not previously known to have a left sided SVC which only became apparent when, after cannulation of the left subclavian vein, the guidewire passed along the left side of the mediastinum. The image shows a postero-anterior film of the implanted device and leads ...
Central vein stenosis/occlusion is a common well-described sequel to the placement of hemodialysis catheters in the central venous system. The precise mechanisms by which central vein stenosis occurs are not well known. Current concepts in central vein stenosis pathophysiology focus on the response to vessel injury model, emphasizing the process of trauma. A case of left brachiocephalic vein stenosis due to the insertion and function of a temporary right subclavian hemodialysis catheter is presented. The purpose of the manuscript is to emphasize that, with the introduction of a temporary subclavian hemodialysis catheter via the right subclavian vein apart from causing concurrent stenosis/infarction of the right subclavian and right brachiocephalic vein, it is also possible to cause stenosis of the left brachiocephalic vein (close to its contribution to the superior vena cava) although the catheter tip is placed in the correct anatomical position in the superior vena cava ...
The EJV was formed as usual, by the posterior division of the retromandibular vein and the post auricular vein .The EJV descended at the angle of the mandible (E in Fig. 1). The main trunk of the EJV descended superficial to the sternocleidomastoid muscle and drained into the subclavian vein, 0.5 cm above the midpoint of the clavicle. A dilation (B in Fig.1) was observed before it finally drained into the subclavian vein. Another venous channel (C in Fig. 1) was observed 1 cm below the angle of the mandible. This venous channel arose from the EJV (D in Fig. 1), traversed the anterior border of the sternocleidomastoid muscle, to descend and empty into the IJV. The IJV drained into the subclavian vein as usual. The facial vein drained into the IJV. No abnormalities were observed on the right side. DISCUSSION The EJV is known to exhibit various anomalies as regarding its formation and course. Standard textbook of anatomy does mention the fact that the EJV may communicate with the IJV but such a ...

Variations in the origin and termination of external jugular vein are common and are reported in the past. However, variations in the course of external jugular vein are uncommon. During routine dissection classes for medical undergraduates, we came across the unusual formation and course of right external jugular vein and absence of common facial vein, in an approximately 60-year-old male cadaver of Indian origin. External jugular vein was formed by the continuation of undivided trunk of retromandibular vein. Following its formation, it passed vertically superficial to sternocleidomastoid muscle to the lower part of occipital triangle. In the occipital triangle it pierced the investing layer of deep cervical fascia and passed deep to the inferior belly of omohyoid muscle and coursed through the subclavian triangle. Then, it terminated at the junction of subclavian vein with internal jugular vein. Facial vein joined with submental vein and finally drained into internal jugular vein. Further, the ...
A 77-year-old woman, with an otherwise good clinical status, was admitted to the hospital for syncope. An electrocardiogram (ECG) revealed second-degree atrioventricular block with good ventricular response. Twelve hours later, she experienced a second episode of syncope and the ECG revealed atrioventricular block with pauses ,3seconds; she underwent placement of a temporary pacemaker (TP) after cannulation of right subclavian vein and insertion of a lead that appeared to pace right ventricle. An X-ray showed the TP lead following the outer curvature of the heart to the apex (Figure A). An intracardiac ECG recorded complexes compatible with right ventricular epicardial pacing (Figure B). Intracardiac ECG is a recording of the patients electrical activity that uses TP leads (proximal V1 and distal V2). Thus, the patients own rhythm must be conserved and he or she must not be completely dependent on the pacemaker. Negative QRS deflection indicates an endocardial site; positive-negative ...
NOTES AND LETTERS Confirmation of Cerebral Air Embolism with Computerized Tomography Te-Long Hwang, MD, Richard Fremaux, MD,F E. Simon Sears, MD,* Bruce MacFadyen, MD, Brian Hills, DSc, ScD, Jon T. Mader, MD,? and Bruce Peters, M D t Paradoxical cerebral air embolism is an unusual complication following insertion of a subclavian intravenous catheter. W e report an ultimately fatal case in a 75-year-old man in whom the diagnosis was confirmed by computerized tomographic (CT) scanning. W e postulate that air passed through a physiologically closed but anatomically patent foramen ovale. A 75-year-old black man with an ileocutaneous fistula had an alimentation catheter inserted into the right subclavian vein while in the Trendelenburg position. After completion of the maneuver and assumption of a sitting position, the patient became unresponsive in midsentence. Neurological evaluation revealed right conjugate gaze preference with full conjugate excursion to the left upon left caloric stimulation ...
First of all, this block is very superficial which makes the surrounding structures easier to see on ultrasound because the sound waves have not degraded in various ways. This also allows for a flat needle path to the intended target, so the needle is easy to see. Because of this, it usually takes one to three minutes to complete the block. Second, there is no jockeying for position with the coracoid process. (I know that Stuart Grant at Duke commonly uses a supraclavicular approach to the infraclavicular block which obviates this fight, but it is still a deeper plane to maneuver. I intend to start this approach myself soon for the sake of experience…when I find a good reason to switch. Ha!) Lastly, though going through a lot of muscle tissue holds an infraclavicular catheter well, you have to go through a lot of muscle tissue. I the image below, an approximate needle course is demonstrated for the supraclavicular block.. The common criticisms of the supraclavicular approach include some ...

The emergency department specifically deals with social injustice, health and economic disparities, violence, substance abuse, and disaster preparedness and response. This journal focuses on how emergency care affects the health of the community and population, and conversely, how these societal challenges affect the composition of the patient population who seek care in the emergency department. The development of better systems to provide emergency care, including technology solutions, is critical to enhancing population health. ...
In this video Dr. Ola Borgquist makes the case for ultrasound-guided, right-sided subclavian central venous lines and introduces the microconvex transducer as a great tool in your practice. As Dr. Borgquist explains the learning curve is not as steep as with other procedures and he expects you will soon be convinced that this is a great technique for central venous catheterisation! Dr Ola Borgquist works as an anesthesiologist/critical care physician at the Department of Anesthesia & Critical Care of Skåne University Hospital in Lund, Sweden. His PhD thesis, Negative Pressure Wound Therapy - therapy settings and biological effects in peripheral wounds, was published in 2013. Currently, his research encompasses both cardiac arrest (the TTM2-trial) and central venous catheterisation (evaluation of complications). Dr. Borgquist is an avid fan of ultrasound-guided procedures (venous lines, regional anesthesia) and tries to help colleagues learn through instructional videos (www.interanest.org).

Tiny tubes, called lymphatic vessels, pick up and carry the intercellular liquid (lymph) from the tissues of the body into the lymphatic trunks (bigger-caliber lymphatic vessels), which convey this fluid into the either of the two lymphatic ducts (right and left). Finally, these ducts drain the intercellular lymph into the subclavian veins, which are located in the shoulder. The subclavian veins (right and left) carry the lymph and deoxygenated blood from the arm, draining it into the brachiocephalic vein. ...
RESULTS: Twelve studies were eligible for meta-analysis. The supraclavicular approach showed overall comparable 24-h pain scores (mean difference -0.34; 95% CI -0.75 to 0.07, P = 0.11) and comparable morphine equivalent consumption (mean difference 1.84 mg per 24 h; 95% CI -0.00 to 3.69, P = 0.05). Secondary endpoint analysis revealed a significantly lower rate of hemidiaphragmatic paresis (risk ratio 0.56; 95% CI 0.39 to 0.82, P = 0.003) and Horners syndrome (risk ratio 0.29; 95% CI 0.19 to 0.44, P , 0.00001) for the supraclavicular approach. There was no significant difference in hoarseness (risk ratio 0.73; 95% CI 0.48 to 1.13, P = 0.16 ...
Central venous access is one of the most common surgery procedures worldwide, especially in pediatric surgery. Local and regional complications as the result of venous catheter permanence time are frequently described as: thrombosis, infection, edema and local cellulite, movement and loss of the catheter. Other severe complications such as endocardiac and hemorrhagic lesions are also described and considered the cause of catheter early removal. In the literature few studies have addressed vascular and perivascular lesions and complications as the result of central venous access to peripheral veins, given the difficulty of setting up venous catheterization experimental models to study blood vessels and perivascular tissue alterations after catheterization. In the present venous catheterization experimental model, rabbits were divided into two groups based on the time that the venous catheters were maintained in their veins.

Disclosed are an apparatus and methods for initial, or replacement, central venous catherization using a flexible guidewire with markings thereon and a substantially translucent non-thrombogenic catheter. In operation, the guidewire is inserted along a catheter positioned in a vein. The marks on the guidewire are then used to establish, and maintain as constant, the position of the guidewire. Next, the catheter already in the vein is removed by sliding it over the guidewire, and a new catheter is slipped over the guidewire into position. Once the new catheter is positioned, the guidewire is removed.

Boyd et al. reported an incidence of 0.2% for catheter looping(7). Identified risk factors that increase likelihood of loop formation,knotting of the catheter are blind introduction and small diameter of catheter, incomplete balloon inflation before advancing it, several tries to wedge it, bending of the catheter by heat, and enlarged right heart chambers. More frequent sites of knotting are right atrium and ventricle, subclavian vein, and pulmonary artery and its branches. Diagnostic confirmation is made by chest radiography, fluoroscopy, and echocardiography(8). Chest radiography should be used to specifically ascertain that the catheter is not in a dangerous location(9).. To avoid from knotting during PAC procedures,it must be known that insertion point of the catheter is on right internal jugular vein and right atrium is 20cm and pulmonary artery tracing is 40-45cm away from this point.If you cant reach the appropriate pressure tracing despite advancing the catheter 10cm further than ...
