A new method to determine anastomosis angle configuration for arteriovenous fistula maturation.

Med J Islam Repub Iran 2018 25;32:62. Epub 2018 Jul 25.

Faculty of IT Management, Science and Research Branch, Islamic Azad University, Tehran, Iran.

The kidneys of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) do not function well enough and those in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) of CKD need hemodialysis (HD) as a common renal replacement therapy (RRT) procedure. HD requires a vascular access (VA), and arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is the common VA choice in the world due to its very few complications. Despite the widespread use of AVFs, some risk factors maximize AVF failure, which is accompanied by complications of the patient such as repeating VA surgeries and hospitalization. Read More

Surgical repair of pseudoaneurysms and complex arteriovenous fistula between popliteal vessels.

J Vasc Bras 2018 Jul-Sep;17(3):229-233

Centro Universitário do Estado do Pará (CESUPA), Belém, PA, Brasil.

An arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is an abnormal and permanent communication between an artery and a vein caused by penetrating traumas or iatrogenic injuries. A penetrating trauma to the endothelial wall can lead to formation of pseudoaneurysms (PSA) and to formation of an AVF. Here, the authors present the case of a patient with a complex AVF of popliteal vessels, associated with popliteal artery pseudoaneurysm, suggested by clinical features and imaging exams, and treated with conventional surgery due to unavailability of a stent graft with appropriate diameter and because endovascular surgery isn't provided at the service where this patient was operated.

Use of a temporary shunt to preserve the patency of a hemodialysis graft while performing ipsilateral axillo-femoral bypass.

J Vasc Access 2019 Jan 8:1129729818820205. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

1 Department of Vascular Surgery, "Democritus" University of Thrace, University General Hospital of Alexandroupolis, Alexandroupolis, Greece.

Increased blood flow in the subclavian artery feeding a vascular access for hemodialysis can rarely induce steal phenomena in the vertebral and internal mammary artery leading to potentially life-threatening conditions. On the contrary, transient interruption of blood flow in the subclavian artery feeding a dialysis arteriovenous fistula can theoretically induce access thrombosis. Here, we describe a technical maneuver preserving continuous ipsilateral upper arm access flow when constructing a unilateral axillo-femoral polytetrafluoroethylene bypass operation for critical limb ischemia in a hemodialysis patient.

Utility of transpulmonary thermodilution with Pulse Index Continuous Cardiac Output system for hemodynamic assessment in a hemodialysis patient with arteriovenous fistula and continuous renal replacement therapy: A case report.

J Vasc Access 2019 Jan 4:1129729818820206. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

2 Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Memorial Hizmet Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Close hemodynamic monitoring is crucial for the patients to guide cardiovascular therapy for the optimal management. Transpulmonary thermodilution offers a less invasive hemodynamic monitoring with Pulse Index Continuous Cardiac Output system analysis. Intracardiac shunts have been associated with well-defined alterations in transpulmonary thermodilution-related hemodynamic parameters leading to inaccurate measurements and therefore are among the contraindications for transpulmonary thermodilution.

Transplant waitlisting attenuates the association between hemodialysis access type and mortality.

J Nephrol 2019 Jan 2. Epub 2019 Jan 2.

University of California San Diego, San Diego, CA, USA.

Prior studies have shown that beginning hemodialysis (HD) with a hemodialysis catheter (HC) is associated with worse mortality than with an arteriovenous fistula (AVF) or arteriovenous graft (AVG). We hypothesized that transplant waitlisting would modify the effect of HD access on mortality, given waitlist candidates' more robust health status. Using the US Renal Data System, we studied patients with incident ESRD who initiated HD between 2010 and 2015 with an AVF, AVG, or HC. Read More

Surgical Repair of Aortocaval Fistula Presenting with Cardiogenic Shock.

Korean J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2018 Dec 5;51(6):406-409. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, Inje University Haeundae Paik Hospital, Inje University College of Medicine.

Aortocaval fistula (ACF) occurs in <1% of all abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs), and in 3% to 7% of all ruptured AAAs. The triad of clinical findings of AAA with ACF are abdominal pain, abdominal machinery bruit, and a pulsating abdominal mass. Other findings include pelvic venous hypertension (hematuria, oliguria, scrotal edema), lower-limb edema with or without arterial insufficiency or venous thrombus, shock, congestive heart failure, and cardiac arrest.

Nucleotide-Binding Oligomerization Domain-Like Receptor Protein 3 Deficiency in Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells Prevents Arteriovenous Fistula Failure Despite Chronic Kidney Disease.

J Am Heart Assoc 2019 Jan;8(1):e011211

1 Department of Cardiovascular Surgery Union Hospital Tongji Medical College Huazhong University of Science and Technology Wuhan China.

Background The arteriovenous fistula ( AVF ) is the preferred hemodialysis access for patients with chronic kidney disease. Chronic kidney disease can increase neointima formation, which greatly contributes to AVF failure by an unknown mechanism. Our study aimed to determine the role of nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain-like receptor protein 3 ( NLRP 3) in neointima formation induced by experimental AVF s in the presence of chronic kidney disease.

LMO7 is a Negative Feedback Regulator of TGF-β Signaling and Fibrosis.

Circulation 2018 Oct 2. Epub 2018 Oct 2.

Medicine and Pharmacology, Yale University, UNITED STATES.

Background: Vascular smooth muscle cells (SMC) synthesize extracellular matrix (ECM) that contributes to tissue remodeling following revascularization interventions. The cytokine transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) is induced upon tissue injury and regulates tissue remodeling and wound healing, but dysregulated signaling results in excess ECM deposition and fibrosis. The LIM domain protein LMO7 is a TGF-β target gene in hepatoma cells, but its role in vascular physiology and fibrosis is unknown. Read More

SMAD4 Deficiency Leads to Development of Arteriovenous Malformations in Neonatal and Adult Mice.

J Am Heart Assoc 2018 Nov;7(21):e009514

1 Department of Physiology and Functional Genomics College of Medicine University of Florida Gainesville FL.

Background Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia ( HHT ) is a rare genetic vascular disorder caused by mutations in endoglin ( ENG ), activin receptor-like kinase 1 ( ACVRL 1; ALK 1), or SMAD 4. Major clinical symptoms of HHT are arteriovenous malformations ( AVM s) found in the brain, lungs, visceral organs, and mucosal surface. Animal models harboring mutations in Eng or Alk1 recapitulate all of these HHT clinical symptoms and have been useful resources for studying mechanisms and testing potential drugs. Read More
