BACKGROUND: Arteriovenous accesses (AVA) in patients performing hemodialysis (HD) are labeled "permanent" for AV fistulas (AVF) or grafts (AVG) and "temporary" for tunneled central venous catheters (TCVC). Durability and outcomes of permanent vascular accesses based on the sequence in which they were placed or used receives little attention. This study analyzed longitudinal transitions between TCVC-based and AVA-based HD outcomes according to the order of placement. METHODS: All 391 patients initiating chronic HD via a TCVC between 2012 and 2013 at 12 outpatient academic dialysis units were included in this study...

Arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is the 'life line' for patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) undergoing hemodialysis. AVF maturation failure is a poorly understood process, one of the contributors being endothelial dysfunction due to oxidative stress. Monoamine oxidases (MAOs) A and B were recently identified as novel sources of vascular oxidative stress. The aim of the present study was to assess the contribution of MAOs to the endothelial dysfunction in patients with ESDR with indication of hemodialysis...

Objectives The modern era of hemodialysis access surgery began with the publication in 1966 by Brescia et al. describing the use of a surgically created arteriovenous fistula. Since then, the number of patients on chronic hemodialysis and the number of publications dealing with hemodialysis access have steadily increased. We have chronicled the increase in publications in the medical literature dealing with hemodialysis access by evaluating the characteristics of the 50 most cited articles. Methods We queried the Science Citation Index from the years 1960-2014...

BACKGROUND: The possibility of coronary steal through an arteriovenous fistula (AVF) in hemodialysis (HD) patients with coronary artery bypass grafts (CABGs) using an ipsilateral internal thoracic artery (ITA) has been suggested. In order to define the significance of such a possibility, we analyzed cardiac events and mortality risk in patients in relation to AVF flow. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was performed on prevalent HD patients from a single center...

Problems related to hemodialysis access are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with end-stage renal disease. Physicians of all specialties who are involved in the placement and maintenance of vascular access for hemodialysis must have a long-term strategy for sequential placement of autogenous fistulas, transpositions, and prosthetic grafts to preserve access sites and to avoid long-term use of tunneled dialysis catheters. The Fistula First and KDOQI initiatives have provided strategies and algorithms for access placement in patients with chronic kidney disease...

INTRODUCTION: Unplanned dialysis start (UPS) associates with worse clinical outcomes, higher utilisation of healthcare resources, lower chances to select dialysis modality and UPS patients typically commenced in-centre haemodialysis (HD) with central venous catheter (CVC). We evaluated patient outcomes and healthcare utilisation depending on initial dialysis access (CVC or PD catheter) and subsequent pathway of UPS patients. METHODS: In this study patient demographics, access procedures, hospitalisations, and major infectious complications were analysed over 12 months in 270 UPS patients...

BACKGROUND: Chronic kidney disease is common in the United States, with many patients maintained on hemodialysis (HD). The process of HD requires vascular access through an arteriovenous (AV) fistula, AV graft, or central venous catheter. Today, as a result of the National Kidney Foundation's "Fistula First" initiative, nearly 55% of HD patients utilize an AV fistula. As there is significant morbidity and mortality associated with fistula placement and recurrent fistula cannulation, emergency physicians must be equipped to recognize and treat fistula complications...

Native AV fistulas are considered to be the best VA for most dialysis patients. A careful preoperative process of care is essential to maximize the proportion of fistulas that achieve adequacy for dialysis. An individualized and timely evaluation of patients starts early with the identification of risk factors, followed by a physical examination which should be complemented by ultrasound vascular mapping in most cases. Vascular mapping includes any technique that leads to information on patient's inflow and outflow anatomy (± hemodynamics) as they relate to arteriovenous access creation and may predict maturation...

As a consequence of the central role of the arteriovenous fistula for dialysis (AVF) in the clinical management of the dialysis patient the necessity to limit the puncture-related complications to extend as much as possible the life of the vascular access. Accordingly, the AVF needling technique has gained growing attention. Alongside the traditional rope ladder (RL) puncture method, the buttonhole technique (BH) is increasingly popular; this technique employs the same cannulation sites of AVF in every dialysis associated with the use of dull needles to minimize vessels damage...

OBJECTIVES: Right heart catheterization is an important diagnostic tool but carries risks of adverse events. Little is known about the feasibility and safety of using dialysis arteriovenous (AV) shunts. We aim to evaluate the feasibility and safety of using dialysis AV shunts for access in right heart catheterization. METHODS: Hemodialysis patients who required right heart catheterization were prospectively enrolled. A 7 Fr sheath was inserted and a balloon-tipped pulmonary artery catheter was advanced for right heart catheterization...

BACKGROUND: We present a case of external iliac vein patch venoplasty to accommodate rescue vascular access via a polytetrafluoroethylene loop arteriovenous fistula graft (AVG) for a patient with multiple central venous stenoses. METHODS: A 35-year-old female with anti-glomerular basement membrane antibody disease required rescue vascular access for hemodialysis. Repeated occlusion and/or thrombosis of long-term central venous access cannulae, to facilitate dialysis, had caused stenosis of brachiocephalic veins: right external iliac vein and occlusion of the left common iliac vein...

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES: Access monitoring and pre-emptive angioplasty is known to decrease the incidence of AVF/AVG thrombosis. The effect on increase the longevity and functionality of Arterial-Venous access (AV access) in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients is not settled. Thrombosis is the leading cause of vascular access complications and is almost always associated with the presence of stenosis. Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) is an accepted treatment of stenotic lesions in AV access (NKF 2001)...

BACKGROUND: Clinically significant steal syndrome occurs in a subset of dialysis patients with arteriovenous (AV) access. Factors associated with steal are poorly understood. Severe symptoms require access revision or sacrifice, potentially jeopardizing access options. Our objective was to review our dialysis access experience to identify factors associated with significant steal syndrome. METHODS: We reviewed all adult patients undergoing their first permanent upper extremity access, AV fistula (AVF) or AV graft (AVG), between January 2008 and July 2011 at a single center...

BACKGROUND: The Venous Window Needle Guide (VWING; Vital Access Corp, Salt Lake City, Utah) is a surgically implanted titanium device designed to facilitate cannulation of uncannulatable dialysis access arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) because of excessive depth, aneurysm formation, or tortuosity but that exhibit sufficient flow volume to support hemodialysis. We report the 18-month fistula patency, functionality, and complications of the use of the VWING device. METHODS: This retrospective study examined AVF patency, VWING functionality, interventions, and device infections at 18 months after VWING implantation...

Whether hemodialysis is performed through a fistula, graft, or a dialysis catheter, it is a common practice to lower the dialyzer blood flow in patients who develop intradialytic hypotension. Lowering dialyzer blood flow is assumed to reduce AV access blood flow and thus increase peripheral vascular resistance tending to raise blood pressure. As a general rule, however, such a reduction in dialyzer blood flow does not lower access flow; only in the case of an intra-access stenosis could this be the case. Reducing access blood flow (in both catheter and AV accesses) did ameliorate a number of potential contributors to intradialytic hypotension when older dialysis technologies were routinely used...
