Background: We describe differences for probability of receiving a fistula attempt, achieving fistula use, remaining catheter-free and the rate of access-related procedures as a function of sex.Methods: Prospectively collected vascular access data on incident dialysis patients from five Canadian programs using the Dialysis Measurement Analysis and Reporting System to determine differences in fistula-related outcomes between women and men. The probability of receiving a fistula attempt and the probability of fistula use were determined using binary logistic regression. Read More

Ascending aortic pseudoaneurysm is a known complication of previous cardiac surgery that needs surgical or endovascular intervention. The presence of arch branches complicates the later approach necessitating additional procedures, either hybrid surgical or endovascular modification of the grafts. We describe a patient who developed an ascending aortic pseudoaneurysm after mitral valve replacement, which recurred after surgical patch closure with the formation of a cutaneous fistula. Read More

Carotid jugular fistula and pseudoaneurysm are easy to form after gunshot injury of carotid artery. Endovascular therapy, such as stent graft implantation, can successfully block the fistula and pseudoaneurysm cavity. However, the possibility of in-stent restenosis or occlusion will lead to treatment failure. Read More

Objectives: This pilot study compared hemostatic pack (HP) application with no intervention following extraction of maxillary primary incisors in healthy children for effect on bleeding time and influence of patient or tooth variables utilizing a novel scale for assessment of bleeding following extraction.Study Design: A novel scale was created to assess bleeding after extraction. This scale was utilized in a randomized, split mouth study of healthy children ages 2-7 years old requiring extraction of at least 2 primary maxillary incisors under general anesthesia. Read More

Aims: Treatment of perianal fistula in cases of Crohn's disease remains challenging and the postoperative recurrence rate is reportedly 22-28%. This study aimed to identify factors that predict the reoperation for perianal fistula in Korean patients with Crohn's disease.Methods: A total of 51 patients (42 men, mean age: 22±9 years) with clinically and pathologically confirmed Crohn's disease underwent surgical treatment for perianal fistula at four referral centers between March 2010 and February 2020.
