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

J Vasc Access 2019 Jan 31:1129729819826034. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

5 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.

Implications for maintaining vascular access device patency and performance: Application of science to practice.

J Vasc Access 2019 Jan 21:1129729818820200. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

1 School of Nursing, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, QLD, Australia.

Introduction:: Vascular access devices are commonly inserted devices that facilitate the administration of fluids and drugs, as well as blood sampling. Despite their common use in clinical settings, these devices are prone to occlusion and failure, requiring replacement and exposing the patient to ongoing discomfort/pain, local vessel inflammation and risk of infection. A range of insertion and maintenance strategies are employed to optimize device performance; however, the evidence base for many of these mechanisms is limited and the mechanisms contributing to the failure of these devices are largely unknown.

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.

A modified intracavitary electrocardiographic method for detecting the location of the tip of central venous catheters in atrial fibrillation patients.

J Vasc Access 2018 Dec 31:1129729818819422. Epub 2018 Dec 31.

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

Introduction:: The intracavitary electrocardiographic method is recommended for assessing the location of the tip of central venous catheter when there is an identifiable P wave. Previous reports suggested that intracavitary electrocardiographic method might also be applied to patients with atrial fibrillation, considering the so-called f waves as a surrogate of the P wave.

Methods:: We studied 18 atrial fibrillation patients requiring simultaneously a central venous catheter and a trans-esophageal echocardiography. Read More

Vascular access for hemodialysis: Current practice in Vietnam.

J Vasc Access 2018 Dec 31:1129729818771883. Epub 2018 Dec 31.

Hemodialysis Department, Bach Mai Hospital, Hanoi, Vietnam.

A well-functioning vascular access is a mainstay to perform an efficient hemodialysis procedure, which directly affects the quality of life in hemodialysis patients. We use three main types of access: native arteriovenous fistula, arteriovenous graft, and central venous catheter. Arteriovenous fistula remains the first and best choice for chronic hemodialysis.

Predictors of venous stenosis or occlusion following first transvenous cardiac device implantation: Prospective observational study.

J Vasc Access 2018 Dec 11:1129729818815135. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

2 1st Department of Cardiology, Medical University of Warsaw, Warsaw, Poland.

Introduction:: Venous stenosis or occlusion related to an intracardiac device is a well-known complication of that procedure. There are numerous studies tried to determine predictors of venous stenosis or occlusion; however, most of them investigate the venous system prior to device upgrade, generator replacement, or transvenous lead extraction. Therefore, we aimed to assess the prevalence and determine the predictors of venous stenosis or occlusion following first transevnous cardiac device implantation. Read More

The impact of functioning hemodialysis arteriovenous accesses on renal graft perfusion: Results of a pilot study.

J Vasc Access 2018 Dec 6:1129729818817248. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

1 Kidney Transplant Unit, Nephrology Department, Hospital de Santa Cruz, Centro Hospitalar de Lisboa Ocidental, Lisbon, Portugal.

Introduction:: After a kidney transplant, it is unknown whether the maintenance of a functioning hemodialysis arteriovenous access could have deleterious effects on renal grafts. We hypothesize that maintaining an arteriovenous access can deviate a significant proportion of the cardiac output from the renal graft. The aim of this study was to investigate whether a temporary closure of the arteriovenous access could lead to an increase in graft perfusion. Read More
