The timing of referral for creation of vascular access in a patient with declining kidney function is difficult to predict. Current methods may result in patients undergoing unnecessary procedures and subsequent interventions on accesses that are never used. Multiple variables, including time for assessment, surgery and follow-up that considers the likelihood of access failure, and the estimated rate of kidney function decline, make vascular access planning challenging and difficult to balance. Better prediction tools that incorporate the risks of progressive decline in kidney function with the risk of access failure and the competing risk of death would facilitate decision-making in vascular access...

Internal jugular venous catheters are widely used for hemodialysis as permanent vascular access in patients with severe peripheral vascular disease or transiently for acute hemodialysis. The Seldinger technique is the most widely used technique in catheter insertion. The guidewire-related complications are rare but sometimes it has significant morbidity and mortality. In this case report, we have a patient who developed asystole during catheter insertion which required transvenous pacemaker insertion.

BACKGROUND: Diagnostic and Interventional Nephrology has been a rising field in recent years worldwide. Catheter insertion, renal biopsy, renal ultrasound, and peritoneal dialysis catheter or permanent dialysis catheter insertion are vital to our specialty. At present, many of these procedures are delegated to other specialties, generating long waiting lists and limiting diagnosis and treatment. METHODS: An online survey was emailed to all Nephrology departments in Spain...

The presence of an intravascular foreign body represents a well-known risk of serious complications. While in the past surgical removal of intravascular foreign body was the most common intervention, nowadays a percutaneous approach in the retrieval of an intravascular foreign body is widely accepted as the first-line technique. In the literature, many case reports describe different techniques and materials. This article summarizes and illustrates the main materials and techniques currently applied for percutaneous retrieval of intravascular foreign body, providing a simplified tool with different interventional possibilities, adaptable to different clinical situations...

OBJECTIVES: To confirm the feasibility of intracavitary electrocardiogram guidance to verify tip's position during insertion of peripherally inserted central catheter and to identify clinical factors or intracavitary electrocardiogram patterns associated with aberrant tip's position. METHODS: A prospective study was conducted in our university hospital after authorization of the ethics committee. All patients addressed for peripherally inserted central catheter insertion were included and received the insertion using intracavitary electrocardiogram and electromagnetic guidance...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the clinical outcomes and complications of totally implantable venous access port implantation via the axillary vein in patients with head and neck malignancy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 176 totally implantable venous access ports were placed via the axillary vein in 171 patients with head and neck malignancy between May 2012 and June 2015. The patients included 133 men and 38 women, and the mean age was 58.8 years (range: 19-84 years)...

PURPOSE: The use of cyanoacrylate for intravenous catheter securement is of interest to clinicians and patients, because of the superior adhesive strength and hemostatic effect of cyanoacrylate compared to current securement devices. The purpose of this study is to use novel in vitro and in vivo testing methods to analyze the hemostatic effect of a catheter securement cyanoacrylate (cyanoacrylate). METHODS: An unprecedented in vitro method was performed to determine the effects of a cyanoacrylate on a customized modified activated clotting time assay and blood flow inhibition assay by exposing blood or plasma to either one or three drops of cyanoacrylate...

BACKGROUND: There are few data to inform decisions about the optimal management of occluded tunneled cuffed hemodialysis catheters with thrombolytic locking solutions. The effect of dose, dwell-time, and number of administrations remains controversial. METHODS: In this retrospective single-center review of tunneled cuffed catheters used between 2010 and 2014, restoration of blood flow as well as pre- and post-pump pressures after either short (30 min) or prolonged (48-72 h) administration of 100,000 IU of urokinase locking solution was evaluated in all thrombotic dysfunctions...

INTRODUCTION: Malnutrition is a well-recognized risk factor for all-cause mortality in hemodialysis patients. However, its role for arteriovenous fistulas outcome has not been exhaustively investigated. Our aim was to point out the impact of Subjective Global Assessment-Dialysis Malnutrition Score as independent predictor of arteriovenous fistulas thrombosis (vascular access thrombosis) and/or significant stenosis (vascular access stenosis). In addition, we compared it with the widespread Charlson Comorbidity Index...

INTRODUCTION: Totally implantable venous access devices are used extensively worldwide in cancer patients for administration of venotoxic agents, blood sampling, and nutrition. Their tip is usually positioned at the junction of superior vena cava and right atrium. Inferior vena cava filters are usually used for deep venous thrombosis in cases where anticoagulation is contraindicated; they can be inserted either via internal jugular or femoral access depending on patient conditions and preference...

OBJECTIVE: Arteriovenous fistulas for hemodialysis vascular access are a burden for the cardiovascular system. After successful kidney transplantation, prophylactic arteriovenous fistula ligation may improve cardiac outcomes; however, evidence is scarce. This survey investigates physicians' preference for management of arteriovenous fistulas and identifies the factors associated with preference for either arteriovenous fistula ligation or maintenance. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A survey was sent to members of eight national and international Nephrology and Vascular Surgery societies...

PURPOSE: Early cannulation grafts are specifically designed for dialysis, whereas standard expanded polytetrafluoroethylene grafts were not. There is developing collective experience and literature available to allow the assessment of outcomes of these early cannulation grafts. The aim of this review was to review the evidence for both short- and long-term outcomes of early cannulation grafts. METHODS: Using standardized searches of electronic databases in accordance with Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses, the primary outcomes for this study were primary and secondary patency rates for early cannulation grafts for dialysis at 12 months and beyond...

INTRODUCTION: Delays in arteriovenous fistula maturation can cause care delays and increased costs. Increased distention pressure and intermittent wall shear stress may dilate veins based on prior research. Early use of non-invasive devices may help assist clinical arteriovenous fistula dilation. METHODS: This was an Institutional Review Board approved study. After arteriovenous fistula creation, a novel, intermittent pneumatic compression device (Fist Assist® ) was applied 15 cm proximal to arteriovenous fistula enabling 60 mmHg of cyclic compression for 6 h daily for 30 days...

Catheter-related right atrial thrombosis is a severe and life-threatening complication of central venous catheters in both adult and young patients. Catheter-related right atrial thrombosis can occur with any type of central venous catheters, utilized either for hemodialysis or infusion. Up to 30% of patients with central venous catheter are estimated to be affected by catheter-related right atrial thrombosis; however, neither precise epidemiological data nor guidelines regarding medical or surgical treatment are available...
