BACKGROUND: Arteriovenous fistula (AVF) maturation failure remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality in hemodialysis patients. The two major etiologies of AVF maturation failure are early neointimal hyperplasia development and persistent inadequate outward remodeling. Although hemodynamic changes following AVF creation may impact AVF remodeling and contribute to neointimal hyperplasia development and impaired outward remodeling, detailed AVF hemodynamics are not yet fully known...

REVIEW
Pieter Martens, Chantal Mathieu, Frederik H Verbrugge
This review provides mechanistic insight in the pleiotropic effects of sodium-glucose transporter-2 (SGLT-2) inhibitors with particular interest to the pathophysiology of heart failure. The SGLT-2 inhibitor empagliflozin has recently demonstrated an unprecedented 38% reduction in cardiovascular mortality in patients with diabetes. Despite modest effects on long-term glycemic control, highly significant reductions in heart failure admissions and end-stage kidney disease were observed. SGLT-2 inhibitors are the latest approved class of glucose-lowering agents...

BACKGROUND: There is an upward surge in the use of laparoscopic surgeries due to various advantages when compared to open surgeries. Major advantages are, due to small incisions which are cosmetically acceptable and most of them are now daycare procedures. Problem of economic burden and hospital bed occupancy has been overcome with laparoscopic surgeries. All these advantages are not free from disadvantages, as hemodynamic changes such as hypertension; tachycardia and other surgical-related complications are commonly observed intraoperatively...

Flexible bronchoscopy is more and more used for diagnosis and management of various pulmonary diseases in pediatrics. As poor coordination of children, the procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia with spontaneous or controlled ventilation to increase children and bronchoscopists' safety and comfort. Previous studies have reported that dexmedetomidine (DEX) could be safely and effectively used for flexible bronchoscopy in both adulate and children. However, there is no trial to evaluate the dose-finding of safety and efficacy of dexmedetomidine-remifentanil (DEX-RF) in children undergoing flexible bronchoscopy...

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a condition caused by atherosclerotic blockages in the arteries supplying the lower limbs and is characterized by ischemia of the leg, progressive myopathy, and increased risk of limb loss. The affected leg muscles undergo significant changes of their biochemistry and metabolism including variations in the levels of many key proteins, lipids, and nucleotides. The mechanisms behind these changes are poorly understood. The objective of this study was to correlate the severity of the PAD disease stage and associated hemodynamic limitation (determined by the ankle brachial index, ABI) in the legs of the patients with alterations in the biochemistry of chronically ischemic leg muscle as determined by ATR-Fourier transform infrared micro-spectroscopy...

Rapid immersion of a rat's limbs into 4°C water, a model of cold stress (CS), can elicit hemodynamic perturbations (CEHP). We have reported that CEHP is highly relevant to the sympathetic activation and nitric oxide production. This study identifies the role of nitric oxide in CEHP. Conscious rats were pretreated with the nitric oxide synthase inhibitor L-NAME alone or following the removal of sympathetic influences using hexamethonium or guanethidine, and then they were subjected to a 10-min CS trial. Hemodynamic indices were telemetrically monitored throughout the experiment...

Rate responsive pacemakers (PM) use different strategies to adapt the patient paced rate, with the aim of having the best hemodynamic performance in response to internal or external conditions. Closed-loop stimulation (CLS) uses intracardiac impedance as a sensor principle. The evaluation of impact of different pacing modalities and technologies on the blood pressure (BP) profiles is mainly investigated in short-term laboratory settings, mainly due to the need of reliable daily-based BP values. The impact of CLS pacing on systemic blood pressure (BP) has been studied on short term basis, but data on long term effects are scarse...

In congenital heart disease, severity of pulmonary hypertension and operability is defined by noninvasive parameters (clinical history, physical examination, and echocardiography) and sometimes, cardiac catheterization. We investigated how circulating levels of inflammatory mediators correlate with such parameters in a young pediatric population (age, 2.0 months to 3.1 years) and the effects of preoperative pulmonary vasodilator therapy with sildenafil. Cytokines were analyzed in serum using chemiluminescence signals...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: Pain after total knee replacement (TKR) interferes with early rehabilitation. Although the use of epidural bupivacaine in post-TKR patients is associated with effective analgesia, the associated motor blockade effect delays functional recovery. We compared analgesic efficacy and side effects of postoperative patient-controlled epidural analgesia (PCEA) with plain ropivacaine 0.1% with/without fentanyl 2.5 μg/mL vs plain bupivacaine 0.0625% with fentanyl 2.5 μg/mL in patients undergoing bilateral TKR...
