How to perform left atrial transseptal access and catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation from a superior approach.

J Cardiovasc Electrophysiol 2020 Jan 2;31(1):293-299. Epub 2019 Dec 2.

Division of Cardiology, Electrophysiology Section, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan.

The standard technique for percutaneous catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF) involves obtaining left atrial access and catheter manipulation from an inferior transfemoral venous access. However, in patients with inferior vena cava interruption, a standard transfemoral venous approach is not possible. In these cases, a percutaneous approach from a superior central vein, such as the internal jugular vein or the axillary/subclavian vein can be considered. Read More

Ultrasound-guided central venous catheter placement through the axillary vein in cardiac critical care patients: safety and feasibility of a novel technique in a prospective observational study.

Minerva Anestesiol 2020 Feb 4;86(2):157-164. Epub 2019 Jul 4.

Department of Anesthesia, Critical Care and Emergency, Maggiore Polyclinic Hospital, Ca' Granda IRCCS and Foundation, University of Milan, Milan, Italy.

Background: Central venous catheterization is essential for careful administration of fluids and drugs in cardiac critical care patients. The axillary vein might represent an alternative to subclavian and jugular vein accesses, with the advantage of being extra-thoracic, more distal from the pleural space and with more likehood of comfort for the patient. Conventional ultrasound-guided cannulation of the axillary vein is technically demanding and does not guarantee precise visualization of the needle tip. Read More

A modified approach for ultrasound-guided axillary venipuncture in the infraclavicular area: A retrospective observational study.

J Vasc Access 2019 Nov 28;20(6):630-635. Epub 2019 Mar 28.

Department of Anesthesia, Zhongshan Hospital, Fudan University, Shanghai, China.

Background: Catheterization of the axillary vein in the infraclavicular area has important advantages in patients with long-term, indwelling central venous catheters. The two most commonly used ultrasound-guided approaches for catheterization of the axillary vein include the long-axis/in-plane approach and the short-axis/out-of-plane approach, but there are certain drawbacks to both approaches. We have modified a new approach for axillary vein catheterization: the oblique-axis/in-plane approach. Read More

A novel ultrasound-guided approach to the axillary vein: Oblique-axis view combined with in-plane puncture.

J Vasc Access 2019 Nov 31;20(6):763-768. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Department of Surgery, "A. Gemelli" University Hospital Foundation, Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Rome, Italy.

Introduction: Ultrasound-guided cannulation of the axillary vein in the infraclavicular area has several potential advantages for both short-term and long-term venous access devices. Currently, there are two techniques to approach axillary vein for ultrasound-guided cannulation: out-of-plane puncture in the short-axis view and the in-plane puncture in the long-axis view. We propose a novel ultrasound-guided puncture technique of axillary vein for centrally inserted central catheter placement, which consists in the oblique-axis view of the axillary vein coupled with the in-plane puncture.

Angioplasty and stenting for the proximal anastomotic stenosis of a brachio-axillary bypass graft using a helical interwoven nitinol stent: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2017 Dec;96(50):e9073

Department of Radiology, Gyeongsang National University School of Medicine, Gyeongsang National University Changwon Hospital, Seongsan-gu, Changwon.

Rationale: Thrombosis due to anastomotic site stenosis is the most common complication in patients with brachio-axillary arteriovenous graft (AVG). Intravascular stent placement may play a special role in the salvage of dialysis grafts that have been previously performed percutaneous angioplasty or surgical procedure on the graft. Herein, we applied a novel stent named Supera which has a high degree of flexibility and resistance to external compression for treating a patient with recurrent venous anastomotic stenosis of brachio-axillary AVG.

A completely biological "off-the-shelf" arteriovenous graft that recellularizes in baboons.

Sci Transl Med 2017 Nov;9(414)

Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN 55455, USA.

Prosthetic arteriovenous grafts (AVGs) conventionally used for hemodialysis are associated with inferior primary patency rates and increased risk of infection compared with autogenous vein grafts. We tissue-engineered an AVG grown from neonatal human dermal fibroblasts entrapped in bovine fibrin gel that is then decellularized. This graft is both "off-the-shelf" (nonliving) and completely biological. Read More

Non-central peripherally inserted central catheters in neonatal intensive care: complication rates and longevity of catheters relative to tip position.

Pediatr Radiol 2017 Nov 1;47(12):1676-1681. Epub 2017 Aug 1.

Division of Neonatology, Department of Pediatrics, Montefiore Medical Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY, USA.

Background: Peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) represent a mainstay of intravascular access in the neonatal intensive care setting when long-term vascular access is needed. Ideally, PICCs should be inserted and maintained in a central position with the tip ending in the superior or inferior vena cava. This is not always achievable, and sometimes the tip remains in a peripheral location. Read More
