PURPOSE: Dialysis access failure is a major cause of morbidity in patients with end-stage renal disease. The Fistula First Breakthrough Initiative (FFBI) dictates arteriovenous fistulae (AVFs) should be preferred over arteriovenous grafts (AVGs) as first line for surgically placed accesses. The purpose of this study was to compare patency rates of surgical dialysis accesses in our mature, urban population after the FFBI. METHODS: Current dialysis patients with accesses placed between 2006 and 2011 were included...

Coronary artery fistulae (CAF) are uncommon heart defects defined as a communication between a coronary artery and a cardiac chamber or vascular structure. They are frequently asymptomatic; nevertheless, they can produce angina, dyspnea or cardiac failure. CAF are believed to be congenital; however, isolated cases of CAF have been described as rare complications of cardiac surgery. We report the percutaneous closure of a giant CAF in an adult patient with angina and previous pericardiectomy.

A 69-year-old woman was referred to our hospital due to dyspnea on exertion and a heart murmur. A chest X-ray showed a bulge at the left 3rd arch and chest computed tomography( CT) revealed a giant mass adjacent to the right ventricular outflow. Multidetector-row CT and coronary angiography showed a giant coronary aneurysm (55×45 mm) and fistulae arising from the left main coronary trunk and entering into the main pulmonary artery (PA). The pulmonary to systemic flow ratio was 1.84. She was diagnosed with coronary-pulmonary artery fistulae with giant coronary aneurysm...

Background/Aims/Objectives: To report the outcome of staged urethroplasty with buccal mucosa and vascularised scrotal flap after failed hypospadias surgery. METHODS: n = 35. INCLUSION CRITERIA: destroyed urethral plate, deficient local skin, fistula and penile deviation. Five out of 35 patients also had a secondary proximal stricture. Stage 1: excision of scarred tissue and fistulae, correction of the penile deviation through dorsal plication and the ventral placement and quilting of buccal graft...

The left circumflex coronary artery associated with a fistula to superior vena cava is a rare entity. We describe a 7-year-old girl who presented with a cardiac murmur and was diagnosed with a coronary artery fistula between the left circumflex artery and superior vena cava by echocardiography. The surgical occlusion of the fistula was successful.

We present the case of a patient with a high-output fistula between the right superficial femoral artery and femoral vein after left atrial appendage closure successfully treated with a PK-Papyrus covered coronary stent using a 6F guiding catheter. To the best of our knowledge this is the first time a PK-Papyrus coronary stent has been used in this setting.

OBJECTIVE: The Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative and Fistula First Breakthrough Initiative call for the indiscriminate creation of arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) over arteriovenous grafts (AVGs) without providing patient-specific criteria for vascular access selection. Although the U.S. AVF rate has increased dramatically, several reports have found that this singular focus on increasing AVFs has resulted in increased AVF nonmaturation/early failure and a high prevalence of catheter dependence...

A coronary artery fistula is defined as an abnormal direct communication between any coronary artery and any of the cardiac chambers, superior vena cava, coronary sinus, pulmonary artery, and pulmonary veins. The right coronary artery (RCA) is the most common site of origin, and right heart chambers are the most common site of drainage. However, there are few cases reported in the literature in which the fistulae originate from both the right coronary and the left anterior descending arteries and drain into the pulmonary artery...

INTRODUCTION: Multiple factors and comorbidities have been implicated in the ability of arteriovenous fistulas (AVF) to mature, including vessel anatomy, advanced age, and the presence of coronary artery disease or peripheral vascular disease. However, little is known about the role of uremia on AVF primary failure. In this study, we attempt to evaluate the effect of uremia on AVF maturation by comparing AVF outcomes between pre-dialysis chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage five patients and those who had their AVF created after hemodialysis (HD) initiation...

OBJECTIVES: To describe the early multi-center, clinical experience with the Medtronic Micro Vascular Plug™ (MVP) in children with congenital heart disease (CHD) undergoing vascular embolization. BACKGROUND: The MVP is a large diameter vascular occlusion device that can be delivered through a microcatheter for embolization of abnormal blood vessels. METHODS: A retrospective review of embolization procedures using the MVP in children with CHD was performed in 3-centers...

Patients with aneurysmal coronary artery fistulas are often a treatment challenge. We hereby, report a case of aneurysmal left main coronary artery to coronary sinus fistula repair, complicated by an early post-operative thrombosis of the left main coronary artery, necessitating an orthotropic heart transplant. Routine use of peri-procedural and long-term anti-coagulation is usually not a standard recommendation in these cases; however, early institution of the same may prevent flow stasis, thrombus formation and unfavourable outcomes pre- or post-operatively...

Coronary-cameral fistulas are rare congenital malformations, often incidentally found during cardiac catheterizations. The majority of these fistulas are congenital in nature but can be acquired secondary to trauma or invasive cardiac procedures. These fistulas most commonly originate in the right coronary artery and terminate into the right ventricle and least frequently drain into the left ventricle. Depending upon their size and location, coronary-cameral fistulas can lead to congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction, and bacterial endocarditis...

We report a case of coronary-pulmonary artery fistula in a hemodialysis patient treated surgically. A 47-year-old man was admitted with chest pain and exertional dyspnea that progressively worsened over the previous 2 months. He had a history of end-stage renal disease and has been on hemodialysis for 5 years. Coronary angiography and computed tomography revealed coronary-pulmonary artery fistula that originated from both the left anterior descending coronary artery and the right coronary artery. Under cardiopulmonary bypass, we opened the pulmonary artery and closed the fistula...

BACKGROUND: Coronary arteriovenous fistula is a rare congenital or acquired abnormal connection between a coronary artery and any of the great vessels or any of the heart chambers. Most of them are diagnosed during routine coronary angiography. CASE REPORT: This case report illustrates a successful surgical ligating of multiple right coronary artery and circumflex artery fistulas to coronary sinus. CONCLUSION: According to our experience and literature review, it can be concluded that to prevent potential complications in various cases of coronary arteriovenous fistula, early surgical management, just after their condition has been diagnosed, is the best choice...
