BACKGROUND: Intensive care unit (ICU) patients require dialysis catheters (DCs) for renal replacement therapy (RRT). They carry a high risk of developing end-stage renal disease, and therefore their vascular access must be preserved. Guidewire exchange (GWE) is often used to avoid venipuncture insertion (VPI) at a new site. However, the impact of GWE on infection and dysfunction of DCs in the ICU is unknown. Our aim was to compare the effect of GWE and VPI on DC colonization and dysfunction in ICU patients...

Umbilical hernia occurs in 20% of the patients with liver cirrhosis complicated with ascites. Due to the enormous intraabdominal pressure secondary to the ascites, umbilical hernia in these patients has a tendency to enlarge rapidly and to complicate. The treatment of umbilical hernia in these patients is a surgical challenge. Ascites control is the mainstay to reduce hernia recurrence and postoperative complications, such as wound infection, evisceration, ascites drainage, and peritonitis. Intermittent paracentesis, temporary peritoneal dialysis catheter or transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt may be necessary to control ascites...

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...

Hemodialysis (HD) catheters are commonly used as temporary vascular access in patients with kidney failure who require immediate HD. The use of these catheters is limited by complications such as infections, thrombosis resulting in poor blood flow. We studied the complications and outcomes of nontunneled catheters used for vascular access in our dialysis unit. The records of all patients, with renal failure who were dialyzed over a two-year period and had a double lumen nontunneled catheter inserted, were retrieved...

An arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is an abnormal connection between an artery and a vein. Double-lumen catheters are widely used for gaining temporary access in patients requiring acute hemodialysis (HD). Several complications are associated with the insertion of these catheters, including bleeding, infection, arterial injuries, and deep venous thrombosis. An iatrogenic AVF is a rare and severe complication following catheterization for temporary HD. Here, we report the case of a patient who developed an iatrogenic AVF following catheterization for acute HD resulting in acute bleeding...

Procedures are a key component to the practice of nephrology. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) requires nephrology fellows to acquire skills and demonstrate competency in the performance of several procedures during fellowship training, including temporary hemodialysis catheter placement, biopsy of native and transplanted kidneys, and various dialytic therapies. It is also required that fellows acquire competency in the interpretation of renal imaging, including renal ultrasound, during their training...

There is a correlation between central venous cannulation and the development of central venous stenosis. Minor retrosternal vein lesions can be easily missed. Computerized tomographic (CT) venography is the diagnostic procedure of choice. The aim of this study was to examine the complications after catheter implantation in patients with prior permanent catheter placement and to evaluate present diagnostic procedures performed prior to choosing permanent access site in order to reduce possible complications after catheter placement...

BACKGROUND: Non-tunneled (temporary) hemodialysis catheters (NTHCs) are the least-optimal initial vascular access for incident maintenance hemodialysis patients yet little is known about factors associated with NTHC use in this context. We sought to determine factors associated with NTHC use and examine regional and facility-level variation in NTHC use for incident maintenance hemodialysis patients. METHODS: We analyzed registry data collected between January 2001 and December 2010 from 61 dialysis facilities within 12 geographic regions in Canada...

Unplanned start on dialysis remains a major problem for the dialysis community worldwide. Late-referred patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and urgent need for dialysis are overrepresented among older people. These patients are particularly likely to be started on in-center hemodialysis (HD), with a temporary vascular access known to be associated with excess mortality and increased risks of potentially lethal complications such as bacteremia and central venous thrombosis or stenosis.The present paper describes in detail our program for unplanned start on automated peritoneal dialysis (APD) right after PD catheter implantation and summarizes our experiences with the program so far...

BACKGROUND: Vascular access is the key in successful management of chronic haemodialysis (HD) patients. Though native arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is considered the access of choice, many patients in our country initiate haemodialysis through central venous catheter (CVC). There is paucity of data on vascular access in haemodialysis patients from southern India. AIM: Aim of the present study was to review our experience of vascular access in Haemodialysis patients (both central venous catheters and arteriovenous fistula) and to assess its success rate and common complications...

Double-lumen catheters have been used widely to obtain temporary access in patients who are in need of acute hemodialysis (HD) because of acute renal failure. Several complications are associated with the insertion of these catheters, including bleeding, infection, injuries to arteries, and deep venous thrombosis. An arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is a rare but significant complication following catheterization for temporary HD. Herein, we present a case of AVF associated with leg swelling 6 months after the removal ofa double-lumen HD catheter...

We studied the dialysis practice-patterns with regard to various aspects of chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage 5D, like anemia, mineral bone disease, vaccination, hospitalization, hypertension and cost of therapy. Four hundred and sixty-four adult hemodialysis (HD) patients from various dialysis centers of Mumbai were included in the study. The mean age of the study patients was 47.2 years. Temporary dialysis catheters were the most common initial vascular access. Thirteen percent of prevalent HD patients were on temporary catheters; 33% of patients had history of failure of arterio-venous fistula...

PURPOSE: In developed countries, dialysis patients are aging along with the general population. The choice of vascular access (VA) is a more complex decision among elderly patients and is not specifically addressed by clinical practice guidelines. We investigated the relationship between the VA type at dialysis initiation in elderly patients and their prognosis, as well as the selection of the optimal VA type. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective observational cohort study of consecutive adult patients (age ≥18 years) as their first form of renal replacement therapy (RRT) between January 1, 2003, and December 31, 2010...

INTRODUCTION: Cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIED) are increasingly being used in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients. These patients have a high risk of device infection. OBJECTIVES: To study the optimal management of device infections in patients with ESRD. METHOD: We used the United States Renal Data System (USRDS) to assess the presence of a CIED and associated comorbidities, risk factors for infection, and mortality following device extraction or medical management in ESRD patients with CIED infection...

BACKGROUND: The forearm location for the initial vascular access has traditionally been considered the most desirable; however, recent advances in our understanding the physiology of fistula development suggest that the larger proximal vessels with higher blood flows may be associated with increased wall stress and faster fistula development. We examined whether the location of a first fistula had any relationship to the incidence and duration of catheter use. METHODS: This was an observational study of 808 patients who underwent the creation of an autologous arteriovenous fistula for their first hemodialysis access who were evaluated for the length of use of a temporary catheter...

Peritonitis is one of the most common and important complications in patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). Fungal peritonitis isreported in 4-8% of peritonitis episodes. Fungal peritonitis due to Paecilomyces species is not common. We report a case of CAPD peritonitis due to P. varioti. We immediately removed the CAPD catheter and IV amphotericin was administered for 4 weeks along with temporary hemodialytic support followed by successful catheter reinsertion.

Difficulty in accessing a new arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is a common technical issue in hemodialysis patients, which often leads to interventional radiology and/or vascular surgery referral. As a consequence, the patient who needs dialysis may require a temporary dialysis catheter with its known potential complications. We present a case where bedside ultrasonography facilitated successful cannulation of a difficult AVF. Ultrasonography (US) training in this procedure may allow early cannulation of new AVFs when the venous diameter is large enough (>0...

INTRODUCTION: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a gradually reduction in glomerular filtration rate (GFR) caused by destruction of a large number of nephrons. Kidney failure is the final stage of CKD with GFR <15ml/min/1.73m(2) or requiring dialysis. Patients must provide vascular access, which is also the "life line" and "Achilles heel" of hemodialysis treatment. AIM: The purpose of this research is to show the demographic structure of the hemodialysis center in Konjic, and also demonstrate the impact of vascular access to the adequacy and the outcome of dialysis treatment...
