Tunneled dialysis catheter

Shefali Gupta, Shrikara P Mallya, Ashok Bhat, Shrikala Baliga
INTRODUCTION: Aerobic bacterial infections often complicate vascular access in patients receiving haemodialysis, leading to Catheter-Related Blood Stream Infections (CRBSI). Various studies report Gram - positive bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) in particular, as the most common aetiologic agent. Studies on microbiological analysis in this subset of population from India are very few. AIM: To examine clinical and bacteriological profiles of haemodialysis patients developing CRBSI, the antibiotic susceptibility of the bacteria isolated from these patients and determine nasal carriage of S...

BACKGROUND: Success of peritoneal dialysis depends on the durability of the peritoneal dialysis catheter, which in turn depends on insertion technique. Catheter-related complications are among the main reasons for peritoneal dialysis failure. Techniques showing evidence of improved catheter function include rectus sheath tunnel, selective omentopexy, and adhesiolysis. METHODS: Single-institution retrospective review of consecutive peritoneal dialysis catheter insertions was performed between 2004 and 2014...

BACKGROUND: Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is an effective method of renal replacement therapy for end-stage renal disease patients. The PD catheter could be inserted by surgical (open surgery/laparoscopic-assisted) or percutaneous techniques. However, the efficacy of the techniques, including catheter survival and catheter related complications, is still controversial. METHOD: The dataset was defined by searching PubMed, EMBASE, Google Scholar and the Cochrane database that had been published until July 2014...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the risk of bleeding associated with tunneled dialysis catheter (TDC) placement in a large population of hemodialysis patients who were either anticoagulated or were taking antithrombotic medications. METHODS: Medical records obtained over a two-year period were queried in order to select two groups of study cases. The first was a Med group (n = 458), cases which had a TDC placed while taking the antithrombotic medications (warfarin, clopidogrel or acetylsalicylic acid [ASA]) which were not discontinued or held...

Heparin locking of venous dialysis catheters is routinely performed in intensive care to maintain catheter patency when the catheters are not being used. Leakage of heparin into the circulation can potentially cause systemic anticoagulation and may present a risk to intensive care patients. To assess the effect of 5000 units per millilitre heparin locking of non-tunnelled dialysis catheters on systemic anticoagulation, we performed a prospective observational study of ten intensive care patients receiving heparin locking of dialysis catheters in an adult tertiary intensive care unit between July and September 2015...

BACKGROUND: Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is often avoided for patients with polycystic kidney disease (PKD) because of increased risk of complications and technique failure due to limited intra-abdominal space. In this study, we have aimed to determine clinical outcomes, patient and technique survivals in patients with PKD performing PD and to define whether PD is appropriate for these patients. METHODS: Totally 99 patients: 33 with PKD and 66 with diseases other than PKD were included in this retrospective study...

BACKGROUND: Removal of tunneled dialysis catheters (TDC) usually occurs in dedicated procedure suites and is performed relatively rarely at the bedside. Scarce evidence exists in the literature to assess the safety and success of this procedure when performed during supervised academic training. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective chart review of all TDC removals performed on an outpatient basis by nephrology fellows under faculty supervision during a 5-year period at an academic Veterans Affairs Medical Center...

INTRODUCTION: Exchange procedures involve tunneled dialysis catheter (TDC) removal and exchange over a wire, using the same exit site and venotomy site. Diagnostic imaging or intervention was generally not performed in exchange procedures. Revision procedures involve placement of new TDC using the previous venotomy site and a new tunnel and exit site. The majority of revisions usually include diagnostic imaging and intervention in the central circulation if needed. METHODS: A retrospective single review of 70 patients who underwent 97 TDC replacements from 2010 to early 2012 because of catheter malfunction was evaluated for either infection or malfunction within 30 days of the procedure...

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES: Access monitoring and pre-emptive angioplasty is known to decrease the incidence of AVF/AVG thrombosis. The effect on increase the longevity and functionality of Arterial-Venous access (AV access) in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients is not settled. Thrombosis is the leading cause of vascular access complications and is almost always associated with the presence of stenosis. Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) is an accepted treatment of stenotic lesions in AV access (NKF 2001)...

Hemodialysis remains the most commonly used RRT option around the world. Technological advances, superior access to care, and better quality of care have led to overall improvement in survival of patients on long-term hemodialysis. Maintaining a functioning upper extremity vascular access for a prolonged duration continues to remain a challenge for dialysis providers. Frequently encountered difficulties in clinical practice include (1) a high incidence of central venous catheter-related central vein stenosis and (2) limited options for creating a functioning upper extremity permanent arteriovenous access...

OBJECTIVES: Studies have reported that the tunnelled dialysis catheter (TDC) is associated with inferior haemodialysis (HD) patient survival, in comparison with arteriovenous fistula (AVF). Since many cofactors may also affect survival of HD patients, it is unclear whether the greater risk for survival arises from TDC per se, or from associated conditions. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine, in a multivariate analysis, the long-term outcome of HD patients, with respect to vascular access (VA)...

BACKGROUND: Using a proper laparoscopic trocar for making a downward rectus sheet tunneling (RSHT) during the implementation of peritoneal dialysis (PD) catheters leads to a longer survival of catheter and less catheter dysfunction. As no specific laparoscopic trocar has been invented for insertion of PD catheters, we designed a new trocar. In this article, we describe specifications of our new invented trocar for the first time. We will describe our experience with it in our patients as well...

Peritoneal dialysis is becoming more important in the management of patients with end-stage renal disease. Because of the efforts of the "Fistula First Breakthrough Initiative," dialysis venous access in the United States has become focused on promoting arteriovenous fistula creation and reducing the number of patients who start dialysis with a tunneled catheter. This is important because tunneled catheters can lead to infection, endocarditis, and early loss of more long-term access. When planned for, peritoneal dialysis can offer patients the opportunity to start dialysis at home without jeopardizing central access or the possibilities of eventual arteriovenous fistula creation...
