BACKGROUND: Vascular access practice is strongly associated with clinical outcomes. There is substantial international variation in the use of arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) and grafts (AVGs), as well as AVF maturation time and location. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective cohort study. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS: Hemodialysis patients participating in the prospective Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (DOPPS) from the United States, Japan, and Europe/ANZ (Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand), including 3,850 patients receiving 4,247 new AVFs and 842 patients receiving 1,129 new AVGs in 2009 to 2015...

INTRODUCTION: Despite the growing number of haemodialysis (HD) patients in India, little is known about vascular access practice. We investigated the use and cost of different vascular accesses by Indian nephrologists. METHODS: An online survey was emailed to 920 Indian nephrologists and 388 (42.1%) responded; 98.5% of whom were responsible for managing dialysis patients, 98% in hospitals. RESULTS: Sixty-four percent of patients initiated renal replacement therapy with HD, 7% with peritoneal dialysis, 10% kidney transplantation and 19% conservative care...

OBJECTIVES: Radiocephalic arteriovenous fistulas (RCAVF) are the preferred vascular access (VA) for hemodialysis (HD). Cohort studies from North America revealed that nonmaturation is a significant disadvantage of RCAVFs compared to other VAs. DESIGN: This present retrospective study describes the incidence of nonmaturation of AVFs and functional failure of arteriovenous grafts (AVG) in a multicentre cohort in the Netherlands and attempts to create a prediction model for nonmaturation of RCAVFs...

In patients receiving hemodialysis, the provision of safe and effective vascular access using an arteriovenous fistula or graft is regarded as a critical priority by patients and health professionals. Vascular access failure is associated with morbidity and mortality, such that strategies to prevent these outcomes are essential. Inadequate vascular remodeling and neointimal hyperplasia resulting in stenosis and frequently thrombosis are critical to the pathogenesis of access failure. Systemic medical therapies with pleiotropic effects including antiplatelet agents, omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (fish oils), statins, and inhibitors of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) may reduce vascular access failure by promoting vascular access maturation and reducing stenosis and thrombosis through antiproliferative, antiaggregatory, anti-inflammatory and vasodilatory effects...

Objective Endovascular stent graft repair for exclusion of pseudoaneurysm is currently being explored to replace open surgical repair as current management. The objective of the study was to evaluate the clinical safety and efficacy of endovascular stent graft intervention in pseudoaneurysms complicating arteriovenous reconstructions in patients on chronic hemodialysis. Methods A retrospective analysis of all pseudoaneurysms treated with stent grafts at our institution over a period of five years was performed...

A tailored therapy to patient requirements by combining endovascular and surgical steps can be necessary to prolong the life of a vascular access. Stent grafts play a growing role for the therapy of dialytic access complications. Randomized multi-center trials, however, support the on-label use of stent grafts in the treatment of graft venous outflow and in-stent restenosis. The main contraindication to their use is an ongoing infection. We report two cases of new off-label application of Viabahn (Gore, flagstaff, USA) stent graft...

INTRODUCTION: Arteriovenous graft (AVG) infection can result in life-threatening sepsis and loss of vascular access. A retrospective study was performed to establish an appropriate treatment strategy for AVG infection. METHODS: A total of 50 cases of AVG infection were treated between January 2005 and June 2016. The surgical methods used were total graft excision (TGE) (n = 34), or partial graft excision (PGE) with interposition graft (n = 16). RESULTS: Infection was noted at a puncture site (n = 22), a prior incision for surgery or endovascular therapy (n = 20), and abandoned (currently unused) grafts (n = 5)...

INTRODUCTION: All arteriovenous fistula/grafts options should be exhausted before haemodialysis is carried out via central venous catheters (CVC). CVCs carry high morbidity and mortality risks and in some patients, the central veins could be exhausted. In these patients, an arterioarterial prosthetic loop (AAPL) or straight graft can be the only option for haemodialysis. A systematic review was thus carried out to look at the use of arterioarterial graft for haemodialysis, with regards to dialysis adequacy, complications, and patency rates...

Nonhealing wounds or skin ulcerations are the result of insufficient repair and destruction of a local healing potential. Opportunistic infections which cause a lot of ulcer complications influence the worsening general condition of patients with AIDS, ultimately leading to death. The chronicity of the condition and poor results of conventional therapy have prompted the search for new methods of treatment. We have examined venous or arteriovenous insufficiency-related extensive crural ulcers in AIDS patients...

Background Dialysis access-associated steal syndrome is a major complication of arteriovenous fistula creation whereby the low-resistance venous conduit shunts arterial inflow through the anastomosis, resulting in clinically significant distal artery insufficiency. Herein, we describe a case of severe steal phenomenon with gangrene of a digit following placement of an arteriovenous fistula that was treated with a novel, entirely endovascular technique. To our knowledge, this was the first totally endovascular approach to dialysis access-associated steal syndrome...

OBJECTIVE: This article describes the use of a transjugular venous access for interventions in upper extremity hemodialysis arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) and grafts. This access is used in selected patients in whom direct puncture of the hemodialysis access is considered to be difficult or cumbersome. Technical success was achieved in 96.7% of patients. If an intervention is unsuccessful, the transjugular access offers the possibility of placement of a dialysis catheter for temporary or long-term hemodialysis...

BACKGROUND: Adequate haemodialysis (HD) in people with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) is reliant upon establishment of vascular access, which may consist of arteriovenous fistula, arteriovenous graft, or central venous catheters (CVC). Although discouraged due to high rates of infectious and thrombotic complications as well as technical issues that limit their life span, CVC have the significant advantage of being immediately usable and are the only means of vascular access in a significant number of patients...

BACKGROUND: In a vessel-depleted neck, distant recipient sites may be the only option for secondary free flap reconstruction. While interposition vein grafts and arteriovenous loops can bridge the gap between the recipient and donor pedicle, they are not without risks. In these scenarios, we examinate the reliablity of a radial forearm free flap (RFFF) as an alternative vascular conduit. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective review of cases between March 2005 and May 2016 was performed...

OBJECTIVE: The urgency with which salvage of thrombosed vascular accesses for dialysis should be attempted remains unknown. We examined the effect of a timely thrombectomy approach on vascular access outcomes for dialysis. METHODS: A before-and-after study was conducted with patients on hemodialysis who had undergone endovascular thrombectomy. A timely thrombectomy initiative (ie, salvage within 24 hours of thrombosis diagnosis) was started in July 2015 at our institution...

Arteriovenous fistula (AVF) after allograft biopsy occurs in 1.6-8.3% of kidney transplant patients and most cases remain asymptomatic. Here, we report a case of hemorrhagic shock in a kidney transplant recipient following bleeding from an AVF after graft biopsy. Immediate intensive care including angiographic embolization saved the patient and the allograft. A 62-year-old woman with end-stage renal disease caused by diabetic nephropathy underwent ABO-incompatible kidney transplantation. No complications occurred in the early postoperative period...

Prosthetic arteriovenous grafts (AVGs) conventionally used for hemodialysis are associated with inferior primary patency rates and increased risk of infection compared with autogenous vein grafts. We tissue-engineered an AVG grown from neonatal human dermal fibroblasts entrapped in bovine fibrin gel that is then decellularized. This graft is both "off-the-shelf" (nonliving) and completely biological. Grafts that are 6 mm in diameter and about 15 cm in length were evaluated in a baboon model of hemodialysis access in an axillary-cephalic or axillary-brachial upper arm AVG construction procedure...
