Simultaneous technological advancements in both imaging as well as devices have resulted in an expansion of endovascular options for vascular access. In particular, radial access has traditionally been more favored for coronary interventions; its use in the aortoiliac and lower extremity vasculature has been constrained by the length of devices and the size of sheaths required. However, with increasing catheter shaft lengths, in addition to new thin-walled sheaths allowing for downsizing, the ability to perform transradial interventions on infrainguinal and infrageniculate vessels has been more readily facilitated...

The number of patients in dialysis increases every year. In this review, we will evaluate the role of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) according to patency of arteriovenous fistula and grafts. The main indication of PΤΑ is stenosis > 50% or obstruction of the vascular lumen of an arteriovenous fistula and graft. It is usually performed under local anesthesia. The infection rate is as low as the number of complications. Fistula can be used in dialysis in the same day without the need for a central venous catheter...

RATIONALE & OBJECTIVE: National vascular access guidelines recommend placement of arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) over grafts (AVGs) in hemodialysis patients, but have not been comprehensively assessed in the elderly. We evaluated clinically relevant vascular access outcomes in elderly patients receiving an AVF or AVG after hemodialysis therapy initiation. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study using national administrative data. SETTINGS & PARTCIPANTS: Claims data from the US Renal Data System of 9,458 US patients 67 years and older who initiated hemodialysis therapy from July 1, 2010, to June 30, 2011, with a catheter and received an AVF (n=7,433) or AVG (n=2,025) within the ensuing 6 months...

Acute pulmonary embolism (PE) is a major public health problem. It is the third most common cause of death in hospitalized patients. In the United States, there are up to 600,000 cases diagnosed per year with 100,000-180,000 acute PE-related deaths. Common risk factors include underlying genetic conditions, acquired conditions, and acquired hypercoagulable states. Acute PE increases the pulmonary vascular resistance and the load on the right ventricle (RV). Increased RV loading causes compensatory RV dilation, impaired contractility, tachycardia, and sympathetic activation...

OBJECTIVE: Despite growing endovascular experience within the vascular surgery community, some catheter-based interventions - such as uterine artery embolization (UAE) - remain outside the clinical scope of most vascular surgeons, owing in part to established referral patterns and limited awareness among referring colleagues. We present our experience with a vascular surgery-based, multidisciplinary UAE program at an academic tertiary referral center. METHODS: In a collaborative effort between vascular surgery and gynecology, a Pelvic Vascular Disease Program has been established to provide palliative, prophylactic, and therapeutic embolizations including, but not limited to, UAE...

Central venous catheter use is common among patients undergoing haemodialysis. Catheter related vascular thrombosis is a frequent complication, which results in catheter dysfunction. This may eliminate the affected vein as a potential route of vascular access and leads to significant morbidity of the limbs involved. Despite increasing prevalence, there is a dearth of evidence-based guidelines for managing such catheter related thrombi, often leading to treatment dilemmas in clinical practice. Minimizing the use of central venous catheters for haemodialysis remains the best approach in preventing such adverse complications...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the safety and incidence of periprocedural adverse events (AEs) among patients who underwent catheter ablation (CA) for atrial fibrillation (AF) in Quebec and Ontario, Canada. BACKGROUND: CA is evolving into the mainstay therapy for patients with symptomatic AF refractory to antiarrhythmic medication. However, the safety of CA at the population level over time requires further evaluation. METHODS: A population-based cohort was constructed using administrative databases of all patients who underwent CA between 1999 and 2014 in Quebec and Ontario, Canada...

The abundance of, and reliance upon, human electro-muscular incapacitation (HEMI) devices, especially in law enforcement, has generated scrutiny and examination of these technologies. The purpose of this study was to examine cardiovascular effects resulting from typical (5 sec) and longer activation (20 sec) HEMI applications studying myocardial function and peripheral vascular system using a combination of invasive cardiovascular catheters and transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). Six healthy swine (Sus scrofa) 3-5 months in age and weighing between 60 and 86 kg were anesthetized and exposed to the TASER Model X26 waveform while transesophageal echocardiography was performed...

INTRODUCTION: Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a potentially deadly disease for infants and adults with few existing medical interventions and no cure. In PH, increased blood pressure in the pulmonary artery eventually leads to heart failure. Fasudil, an antagonist of Rho-kinase, causes vasodilation leading to decreased systemic artery pressure and pulmonary artery pressure (PAP). This study compared the effects of fasudil administered as either an intravenous infusion or inhaled aerosol in newborn lambs...

Patients with end-stage kidney disease who are considering home hemodialysis (HHD) face the challenge of learning to self-cannulate their arteriovenous access. Current practice discourages the use of tunneled central venous catheters, with recent indications that self-cannulating patients have superior outcomes. Patient-level barriers do not appear to preclude a successful HHD program and should not be viewed as insurmountable by healthcare staff or patients. The healthcare team must address patient fears while instructing the patient to perform self-cannulation safely...

BACKGROUND: Acute pancreatitis may cause massive intra-abdominal bleeding as vascular complications caused by the erosion of a major pancreatic or peripancreatic vessel. In terms of treatment, the differentiation between arterial bleeding and venous bleeding using abdominal computed tomography (CT) angiography is important. In addition, hypovolemic shock caused by bleeding from the inferior mesenteric vein (IMV) in acute pancreatitis has not been reported. CASE REPORT: A 58-year-old man presented to our emergency department with complaints of abdominal pain of 10 hours' duration...

BACKGROUND: Most trials regarding catheter-based renal sympathetic denervation (RDN) describe a proportion of patients without blood pressure response. Recently, we were able to show arterial stiffness, measured by invasive pulse wave velocity (IPWV), seems to be an excellent predictor for blood pressure response. However, given the invasiveness, IPWV is less suitable as a selection criterion for patients undergoing RDN. Consequently, we aimed to investigate the value of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) based measures of arterial stiffness in predicting the outcome of RDN compared to IPWV as reference...

Vasospasm immediately after lower extremity arterial bypass may represent an uncommon cause of early graft failure. We report a successful case of catheter-directed, intra-arterial continuous vasodilator infusion to salvage a bypass graft threatened by severe, refractory vasospasm after incomplete response to nicardipine, verapamil, and nitroglycerin boluses. A continuous nitroglycerin infusion was administered for 24 hours, by which time the vasospasm resolved. At 12 months postoperatively, the graft remained patent with normal results of vascular laboratory studies...

Restenosis after catheter or surgical intervention substantially affects the prognosis of arterial occlusive disease. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) may have anti-stenotic effects on injured arteries. MSC transplantation from the adventitial side of an artery is safer than endovascular transplantation but has not been extensively examined. In this study, a rat model of femoral artery injury was used to compare the anti-stenotic effects of transplanted cell sheets and transplanted cell suspensions. Rat adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) were used as the source of MSCs...

Background: Application of direct aspiration catheters has revolutionized acute stroke care and has led to significant improvement in clinical outcome with a good safety profile. Catheter fracture and retention is a rare but potentially devastating complication. Case Description: Here we present two cases of acute stroke complicated by aspiration catheter fracture and retention. Successful catheter retrieval and revascularization was achieved in both cases. The stenosis or tortuosity of vascular anatomy appears to be the probable contributor to catheter breakage by anchoring the catheter with resultant fracture at the constraint point from catheter withdrawal tensile stress...
