A novel technique of axillary vein puncture involving peripherally inserted central venous catheters for a small basilic vein.

J Vasc Access 2018 May 29;19(3):311-315. Epub 2018 Mar 29.

1 Department of Surgery, Tohoku Rosai Hospital, Sendai, Japan.

Purpose: Peripherally inserted central venous catheters are some of the most useful devices for vascular access used globally. Peripherally inserted central venous catheters have a low rate of fatal mechanical complications when compared to non-tunnel central venous catheters. However, as peripherally inserted central venous catheter access requires a smaller vein, there is a high risk of thrombosis. Read More

Ultrasound evaluation of the respiratory changes of the inferior vena cava and axillary vein diameter at rest and during positive pressure ventilation in spontaneously breathing healthy volunteers.

Emerg Med J 2018 May 9;35(5):297-302. Epub 2018 Mar 9.

Division of Emergency Medicine, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa.

Introduction: Ultrasound assessment of the inferior vena cava (IVC) has gained favour in aiding fluid management decisions for controlled, mechanically ventilated patients as well as in non-mechanically ventilated, spontaneously breathing patients. Its utility in spontaneously breathing patients during positive pressure non-invasive ventilation has not yet been determined. The use of the axillary vein, as an alternative option to the IVC due to its ease of accessibility and independence from intra-abdominal pressure, has also not been evaluated. Read More

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.

Revisiting Ultrasound-Guided Subclavian/Axillary Vein Cannulations: Importance of Pleural Avoidance With Rib Trajectory.

J Intensive Care Med 2017 Jul 30;32(6):396-399. Epub 2017 Mar 30.

1 Department of Critical Care, Respiratory Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH, USA.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines for the prevention of catheter-related bloodstream infections suggest using "a subclavian site, rather than an internal jugular or a femoral site, in adult patients." This recommendation is based on evidence of lower rates of thrombosis and catheter-related bloodstream infections in patients with subclavian central venous catheters (CVCs) compared to femoral or internal jugular sites. However, preference toward a subclavian approach to CVC insertion is hindered by increased risk of mechanical complications, especially pneumothorax, when compared to other sites. Read More

Novel experience of laser-assisted 'inside-out' central venous access in a patient with bilateral subclavian vein occlusion requiring pacemaker implantation.

Europace 2017 Oct;19(10):1750-1753

Department of Cardiology, The James Cook University Hospital, South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Marton Road, Middlesbrough TS4 3BW, UK.

Aim: This new laser facilitated 'inside-out' technique was used for transvenous pacemaker insertion in a pacemaker-dependent patient with bilateral subclavian occlusion and a failed epicardial system who is not suitable for a transfemoral approach.

Method And Results: Procedure was undertaken under general anaesthesia with venous access obtained from right femoral vein and left axillary vein. 7F multipurpose catheter was used to enter proximal edge of the occluded segment of subclavian vein via femoral approach, which then supported stiff angioplasty wires and microcatheters to tunnel into the body of occlusion.

Venous access and long-term pacemaker lead failure: comparing contrast-guided axillary vein puncture with subclavian puncture and cephalic cutdown.

Europace 2017 Jul;19(7):1193-1197

Alice Ho Miu Ling Nethersole Hospital, Hong Kong, People's Republic of China.

Aims: Existing data on the relationship between venous access and long-term pacemaker lead failure (PLF) are scarce and inconsistent. We aim to study the hypothesis that contrast-guided axillary vein puncture (AP) is better than subclavian puncture (SP) and similar to cephalic vein cutdown (CV) in the incidence of PLF and the success rate of AP is higher than CV.

Methods And Results: The case records of 409 patients with 681 implantable pacemaker leads were reviewed. Read More

A rare case of persistent jugulocephalic vein and its clinical implication.

Anat Cell Biol 2016 Sep 29;49(3):210-212. Epub 2016 Sep 29.

Department of Anatomy, Melaka Manipal Medical College (Manipal Campus), Manipal University, Manipal, Inida.

Persistence of jugulocephalic vein is one of the extremely rare variations of the cephalic vein. Knowledge of such a variation is of utmost importance to orthopedic surgeons while treating the fractures of the clavicle, head and neck surgeons, during surgery of the lower part of neck, for cardiothoracic surgeons and radiologists during catheterization and cardiac device placement. We report the persistent jugulocephalic vein in an adult male cadaver, observed during the routine dissection classes. Read More

Axillo-iliac arteriovenous hemodialysis graft creation with an early cannulation device.

J Artif Organs 2017 Mar 5;20(1):57-61. Epub 2016 Oct 5.

Department of Surgery, Section of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy, Instituto Nacional de Ciencias Médicas y Nutrición "Salvador Zubirán", Vasco De Quiroga 15, Tlalpan, Sección XVI, 14080, Mexico City, Mexico.

Exhaustion of superficial veins coupled with the presence of intrathoracic central venous occlusions remains a significant obstacle for hemodialysis access creation; complex arteriovenous graft (AVG) configurations have been described. The axillary-iliac AVG was first reported in 1987, and few authors have explored this access. We evaluated our experience with this AVG configuration utilizing the early cannulation (EC) graft Flixene™ (Atrium ™, Hudson, NH, USA). Read More

[Injuries to blood vessels near the heart caused by central venous catheters].

Anaesthesist 2016 Nov;65(11):866-871

Bodensee Medizin Campus, Klinik für Anästhesie, Intensivmedizin, Notfallmedizin und Schmerztherapie, Röntgenstraße 2, 88048, Friedrichshafen, Deutschland.

Injuries to blood vessels near the heart can quickly become life-threatening and include arterial injuries during central venous puncture, which can lead to hemorrhagic shock. We report 6 patients in whom injury to the subclavian artery and vein led to life-threatening complications. Central venous catheters are associated with a multitude of risks, such as venous thrombosis, air embolism, systemic or local infections, paresthesia, hemothorax, pneumothorax, and cervical hematoma, which are not always immediately discernible.

How to make the axillary vein larger? Effect of 90° abduction of the arm to facilitate ultrasound-guided axillary vein puncture.

J Crit Care 2016 06 29;33:38-41. Epub 2015 Dec 29.

Department of Infectious Diseases, "A. Gemelli" Teaching Hospital, Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Rome, Italy.

Purpose: Placement of central venous catheters by the infraclavicular route can be achieved by ultrasound-guided puncture of the axillary vein. However, in some cases, the axillary vein may be difficult to puncture because it is too deep or too small or because it is collapsing significantly during breathing. The objective of this observational study was to determine the effect of 90° abduction of the arm associated with forward position of the shoulder on axillary vein diameters. Read More

Wireless Ultrasound-Guided Axillary Vein Cannulation for the Implantation of Cardiovascular Implantable Electric Devices.

J Cardiovasc Electrophysiol 2016 Apr 12;27(4):482-7. Epub 2016 Feb 12.

Cardiology Department, University Hospital Ramon y Cajal, Madrid, Spain.

Introduction: Ultrasound guidance for vascular cannulation seems safer and more effective than an anatomical landmark approach, though it has not gained widespread support partly due to workflow interference of wired probes. A wireless ultrasound transducer (WUST) may overcome this issue. We report the effectiveness, time consumption, and safety of the first-in-human experience in axillary vein cannulation guided with a novel WUST for the implantation of cardiovascular implantable electric devices (CIEDs).
