Cannulation technique has the potential to impact arteriovenous fistula (AVF) function. The aim of this research was to determine the impact of cannulation technique on the length of the functioning AVFs in older adult patients on hemodialysis. The study included 110 participants with fistula thrombosis who had used area technique or rope ladder technique. Biochemical parameters, gender, demographic, and clinical variables were determined. Patients who used the area cannulation technique differed significantly from patients using the rope ladder technique with regard to duration of hemodialysis (p < 0...

The arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is the recommended access for most people requiring hemodialysis. Success or failure of cannulation of the AVF greatly impacts the patient's experience. Research suggests that skill development in this area is needed. This scoping review was conducted to review current research on cannulation of the AVF to find strategies to improve successful cannulation. Results of this scoping review (n = 36)demonstrated that most studies can be categorized under the technique of cannulation, and concerns and preferences with the AVF as a consequence of cannulation...

There is a lack of consensus in the literature on what constitutes successful arteriovenous fistula (AVF) cannulation outcomes from the patient perspective. The purpose of this study was to describe what successful cannulation means to patients on hemodialysis. A qualitative descriptive approach was used. A purposeful sample of 17 patients dialyzing with an AVF participated in one face-to-face interview. Using content analysis, four themes were identified that impact the patient experience in defining successful cannulation: 1) an emotional response - pain and anxiety, 2) a 'friendly' nurse-patient relationship, 3) nursing interventions/technical skills during cannulation, and 4) the impact of the environment...

Background/Aims: This study aims to demonstrate whether the association between initial vascular access and mortality among hemodialysis patients varies by age. Methods: We conducted a retrospective study that included 2,552 patients who started hemodialysis. Vascular access was divided into three categories: percutaneous catheter, tunneled cuffed catheter, and arteriovenous (AV) access. Results: Survival rates for patients who received a central venous catheter, such as percutaneous or tunneled cuffed catheter, aged 65 to 74 years and those ≥ 75 years were reduced, but not for those aged < 65 years (log-rank test; p < 0...

INTRODUCTION: Arteriovenous access (AVA)-related pain treated successfully with runoff-venous decompression of the causative nerve, following ultrasound (US)-assisted preoperative evaluation, has never been reported. CASE PRESENTATION: A 57-year-old man suffering from constant exhausting pains along the outflow cephalic vein of the radiocephalic arteriovenous fistula at the wrist and the antecubital fossa, was treated surgically after the diagnosis of AVA-related pain derived from cephalic vein compression on two peripheral cutaneous nerves, the superficial radial nerve (SRN) and the lateral antebrachial cutaneous nerve (LACN)...

BACKGROUND: Failure of maturation occurs in 30%-60% of arteriovenous fistula (AVF) creation for hemodialysis, with highest rates in distal radiocephalic fistulas. This is partly due to initial small blood vessel size with limited blood flow capacity. Forearm exercise has shown potential as stimulus for increasing blood vessel size in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and may promote maturation of AVFs in the upper limb when applied postoperatively. However, it is unknown if forearm exercise increases blood vessel size pre-operatively, which may contribute to more distal AVF creation and raise success rates of AVF surgery...

Herein, we report the case of a 44-year-old female with end-stage renal disease on hemodialysis. She was admitted to our hospital to evaluate if she was eligible for a kidney transplant. Transthoracic echocardiography showed a markedly dilated coronary sinus and an unexpected finding of increased right ventriculoatrial gradient. A saline contrast echocardiography to confirm the presence of persistent left superior vena cava (PLSVC) was not performed because of arteriovenous fistula (FAV) for hemodialysis on the left forearm...

Low rates of arteriovenous fistula (AVF) maturation prevent optimal fistula use for hemodialysis; however, the mechanism of venous remodeling in the fistula environment is not well understood. We hypothesized that the embryonic venous determinant Eph-B4 mediates AVF maturation. In human AVF and a mouse aortocaval fistula model, Eph-B4 protein expression increased in the fistula vein; expression of the arterial determinant Ephrin-B2 also increased. Stimulation of Eph-B-mediated signaling with Ephrin-B2/Fc showed improved fistula patency with less wall thickness...

BACKGROUND: Patients with end-stage renal disease undergoing hemodialysis (HD) have an elevated risk of cardiovascular disease-related morbidity and mortality. To prevent from such a life-threatening event, the continuous blood pressure (BP) monitoring system may contribute to detect BP decline in early stages and may help to do appropriate disposal. Our research team has introduced an electronic stethoscope (Asahi Kasei Co, Ltd., Tokyo, Japan), which translates sound intensity of Arteriovenous Fistula (AVF) to BP data using the technique of Fourier transformation that can predict continuous BP non-invasively...

Peritoneal dialysis (PD) interruption requiring hemodialysis (HD) is not uncommon and its frequently abrupt nature prevents timely creation of permanent HD access and avoidance of central venous catheters (CVC). We retrospectively studied a cohort of 24 end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients (mean age 50.7 years, 83.3% African-Americans, 58.3% females, time on dialysis interquartile range [IQR] 0 - 65 days) who had simultaneous PD catheter insertion and backup arteriovenous fistula (AVF) creation between January 1, 2012, and December 31, 2013...

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: Vascular access for hemodialysis is best provided by an arteriovenous fistula (AVF). AVF fail primarily because of neointimal hyperplasia. Asymmetric dimethlyarginine (ADMA) is a naturally occurring analogue of L-arginine, which is elevated in renal failure and impairs endothelial cell function. ADMA inhibits nitric oxide synthetase, leading to impaired nitric oxide production and contributing to the development of neointimal hyperplasia. ADMA was measured at the time of AVF placement to evaluate associations with access failure...

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...

Since the publication of the first vascular access clinical practice guidelines in 1997, the global nephrology community has dedicated significant time and resources toward increasing the prevalence of arteriovenous fistulas and decreasing the prevalence of central venous catheters for hemodialysis. These efforts have been bolstered by observational studies showing an association between catheter use and increased patient morbidity and mortality. To date, however, no randomized comparisons of the outcomes of different forms of vascular access have been conducted...

The increasing survival of hemodialysis patients results in the depletion of superficial venous capital justifying the use of the basilic vein. Many groups still prefer an arteriovenous graft due to transposition complexity and the time needed to achieve maturation. In this work we review the results of our series of basilic vein transpositions (BVT). BVTs were performed in two stages: first, creation of the fistula; second, transposition of the vein using three small incisions in the arm. All patients had to have direct arterialization of the basilic vein, therefore, patients with previous ipsilateral wrist fistulas also followed a two-stage protocol...
