Arteriovenous fisula

Soo Jin Na, Yoon-Seok Koh, Tae-Hoon Kim, Sun-Chul Park, Woo-Seung Shin, Ho-Jong Chun, Jong-Min Lee
A 51-yr-old man presented exertional dyspnea as a consequence of iliocaval fistula combined with paradoxical pulmonary embolism and high-output heart failure. Endovascular stent-graft repair was performed to cover iliocaval fistula and restore the heart function. After the procedure, dyspnea was improved and procedure related complication was not seen. A 6-month follow-up computed tomography showed regression of pulmonary thromboembolism and well-positioned stent-graft without graft migration, aortacaval communication or endoleak...

Pulmonary arteriovenous fisula is a rare condition in which there is abnormal connection between pulmonary arteries and veins. We describe this condition is an 18-year-old male who presented with cyanosis, clubbing, polycythemia and multiple brain abscesses. The patient was diagnosed as pulmonary arteriovenous fistula based on CT scan and on pulmonary angiography. The patient had a complete recovery after surgical drainage of brain abscess and excision of right upper lobe. After one year of follow up, there are no symptoms and there is complete reversal of cyanosis and polycythemia...

Two factors increasing flow rate in arteriovenous fisulae (AVF) with the subsequent risk for cardiac function, are the site of the access and time since its creation. Cubital AVF and bypasses are less often involved. Mean flow rate in a distal fistula is 465 +/- 250 ml/min. For proximal fistulae, mean flow rate is 750 +/- 309 ml/min. Flow rate is measured by pulsed duplex-Doppler of the humeral artery or the axillary artery. If high flow rate is poorly tolerated, careful assessment should provide an orientation concerning appropriate correction: ligature of the proximal radial artery to limit arterial inflow to the AVF which is then comes solely from retrograde flow from the radial artery via the palmar arcades and the cubital artery; distal prolongation by radial bypass or transposition after checking the state of the forearm arteries...

A patient with an abdominal aortic aneurysm with a preaortic left renal vein fistula is presented. Review of the 7 reported cases of aorto-left renal vein fistulae demonstrates many similarities in the clinical presentation with aorto-caval fisulae. However, in addition to the triad of pain, pulsatile abdominal mass and bruit, commonly found in aorto-caval fistulae, the presence of hematuria, proteinuria, and azotemia suggests a renal vein fistula. Radiographic studies often demonstrate a large non-functional left kidney...

Seven patients who received chronic chemotherapy and required vascular access underwent construction of an arteriovenous fistula of the leg using gluteraldehyde-tanned human umbilical cord vein allografts. No wound or graft complications have occurred and patient tolerance of the operative procedure and subsequent use of the fisulas for chemotherapy has been excellent. Our preliminary results suggest that the use of umbilical vein allograft arteriovenous fistulas is quite satisfactory for long-term chemotherapy access...
