BACKGROUND: In patients without or with injured cephalic vein, using the basilic vein for creating arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is the best way for hemodialysis. In order to create AVF, the basilic vein should be superficialized and lateralized. This study sought to examine outcome of relocation of basilic vein in brachiobasilic fistulas in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF). METHODS: We evaluated the outcome of creation of brachiobasilic fistula with transposition of basilic vein in 27 patients (14 males and 13 females with mean age of 60...

INTRODUCTION: One of the frequent complications suffered by patients with chronic renal failure is the lack of vascular access due to venous thrombosis. This means that the transplant surgeon must have a detailed knowledge of the intra-abdominal venous system, and other alternative surgeries, at the time of performing the renal graft implant, in order to ensure a good venous drainage. PRESENTATION OF THE CASE: This article provides a case report regarding a patient with no vascular access and with surgical difficulties at the time of the kidney transplant, in whom a renal-portal venous drainage was performed with very good outcome...

Subtotal parathyroidectomy may be indicated in patients with chronic renal failure and tertiary hyperparathyroidism, a population at increased risk for central venous stenosis (CVS) due to repeated vascular access. Here we report a case of complete upper airway obstruction precipitated by subtotal parathyroidectomy with ligation of anterior jugular vein collaterals in a patient with occult CVS. This case demonstrates a previously unreported risk of anterior neck surgery in patients with chronic renal failure...

Acute renal failure (ARF) in adults in the intensive care unit (ICU) often evolves in a context of multiple organ failure, which explains the high mortality rate and increase treatment needs. Among, two modalities of renal replacement therapy, peritoneal dialysis (PD) was the first modality used for the treatment of ARF in the 1950s. Today, while PD is generalized for chronic renal failure treatment, its use in the ICU is limited, particularly, due to the advent of new hemodialysis techniques and the development of continuous replacement therapy...

INTRODUCTION: Hemodialysis with arteriovenous fistula (AVF) has been widely accepted treatment modality for patients with chronic renal failure (CRF). Radiocephalic fistulas are considered to be the most desirable for the initial vascular access. The aim of this study is to investigate the surgeon factor on radiocephalic fistula patency rates. METHODS: A total of 186 patients with diagnosis of CRF underwent Radiocephalic fistula for hemodialysis access were included...

We analyzed the current health economics of vascular access (VA) procedures in Japan. Results showed that the yearly VA-related medical expenses were as high as JPY20 billion and accounted for 1.4% of the total healthcare cost for chronic renal failure. The United States Renal Data System (USRDS) statistics showed that in the USA the yearly VA-related medical expenses accounted for 1.2% of the total medical cost for chronic renal failure, indicating that the costs did not differ much between the two countries...

Progression in hemodialysis technology and vascular access techniques has led to many patients remaining on chronic hemodialysis for significantly greater periods of time. The surgically constructed arteriovenous fistula at the wrist, mid-forearm, or antecubital fossa presents the most ideal and long-term angioaccess. Adequate radial or brachial arterial flow is mandatory for success, and moderate to large sized patent superficial arm veins are even more critical for immediate and long-term patency. A properly selected and constructed fistula has primary patency rates often exceeding five and ten years...

BACKGROUND: A shunt is usually created from the distal arm (wrist) to the proximal arm (axillary loop) as long as no central stenosis has occurred. Creating vascular access in a patient with central vein stenosis could induce venous hypertension in the upper extremities. In such patients, an ipsilateral internal jugular vein (IJV) as an arteriovenous (AV) outflow vein should be the last option for using a particular arm. METHODS: Thirty-two patients who had AV hemodialysis access via a jugular vein were analyzed retrospectively from 2001 to 2011...

Infection of prosthetic hemodialysis (HD) shunts is one of the most common complications of vascular access in hemodialysis patients. The incidence of anaerobic infection is very rare. In such a case, management of treatment represents a great challenge for the surgeon. We report a complicated case of autologous hemodialysis shunt infected by Clostridium perfringens on the right forearm in a polymorbid female patient with chronic renal failure and myelodysplastic syndrome. The patient has undergone repeated establishment of HD shunt with subsequent polybacterial local infectious complications...

OBJECTIVE: Endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) gene is a candidate gene in cardiovascular and renal diseases. Several polymorphic variations have been identified in eNOS gene. We investigated a potential role of arteriovenous fistula (AVF) thrombosis and intron 4 and G894T polymorphisms in chronic renal failure. METHODS: We performed a case-control observational study involving 79 with/without AVF thrombosis in chronic renal failure patients. All subjects were genotyped by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and PCR-Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism...

BACKGROUND: In candidate patients for permanent hemodialysis or dialysis on a regular basis, an appropriate vascular access has great importance. The best permanent access is AVF (arterio venous fistula). Use of a technique to create AVF with better patency seems to be logical. OBJECTIVES: The present study aimed to compare the efficacy rate of AVFs using two different anastomosis methods; Side to Side (STS) versus End to Side (ETS) and to determine whether the different approaches render any preferences or complications...

INTRODUCTION: There is a known association between low scores for quality of life (QOL) and higher rates of hospitalization, mortality in hemodialysis vascular access catheter, older age, lack of regular occupation, presence of comorbidities and hypoalbuminemia. There is still no agreement about the influence of sex, educational level, socioeconomic status and treatment time on the worst levels of QOL. OBJECTIVE: Identify socioeconomic, demographic, clinical, nutritional and laboratory factors associated with worse QOL in adults undergoing hemodialysis in Sao Luís, Maranhão, Brazil...

TAPSE measurement during echocardiography is a well known measure of right heart systo-diastolic function. Low TAPSE means reduced cranio-caudal excursion of tricuspidal annulus, sign of both reduced ejection fraction and reduced distensibility of right ventricle. It is a good prognostic index for cardiac mortality risk in CHF patients, adding significant prognostic information to NYHA stadiation. Nephrologists do not always fully aware of right ventricular function in their patients affected by chronic renal failure (CRF), even if this datum is probably crucial in vascular access policy...

In recent decades, the survival of dialysis patients has gradually increased thanks to the evolution of dialysis techniques and the availability of new drug therapies. These elements have led to an increased incidence of a series of dialysis-related diseases that might compromise the role of dialysis rehabilitation: vascular disease, skeletal muscle disease, infectious disease, cystic kidney disease and cancer. The nephrologist is therefore in charge of a patient group with complex characteristics including the presence of indwelling vascular and/or peritoneal catheters, conditions secondary to chronic renal failure (hyperparathyroidism, anemia, amyloid disease, etc...

Ultrasound-guided cannulation of a large-bore catheter into the internal jugular vein was performed to provide temporary hemodialysis vascular access for uremia in a 65-yr-old woman with acute renal failure and sepsis superimposed on chronic renal failure. Despite the absence of any clinical evidence such as bleeding or hematoma during the procedure, a chest x-ray and computed tomographic angiogram of the neck showed that the catheter had inadvertently been inserted into the subclavian artery. Without immediately removing the catheter and applying manual external compression, the arterial misplacement of the hemodialysis catheter was successfully managed by open surgical repair...
