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.

Patients' wishes, pregnancy and vascular access: When one size does not fit all.

J Vasc Access 2018 Nov;19(6):518-520

4 Nephrology and Dialysis Unit, Ospedale San Carlo Borromeo, Department of Clinical and Biomedical Sciences 'Luigi Sacco', University of Milan, Milan, Italy.

Pregnancy in dialysis patients is a rare but important event that challenges our knowledge and demands re-thinking many aspects of our practice, including vascular access. This editorial briefly discusses some open questions on vascular access in this situation that challenge the motto 'fistula first' and underline the need for personalised approaches. Information on vascular access in pregnant women is scant. Read More

One-stage lipectomy superficialization of deep cephalic veins in comparison with secondary lipectomy in arteriovenous dialysis fistula.

J Vasc Access 2018 Oct 28:1129729818806746. Epub 2018 Oct 28.

Department of Vascular Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, Tanta University, Tanta, Egypt.

Objective:: Lipectomy is an acceptable method of cephalic vein superficialization in hemodialysis arteriovenous fistula. However, limiting it to be a secondary procedure may prolong time between fistula creation and successful cannulation posing more risk of central venous catheter use.

Aim:: The aim of this study is to evaluate primary surgical lipectomy performed at the time of arteriovenous fistula creation in comparison with secondary lipectomy. Read More

Agitated saline bubble-enhanced ultrasound for the positioning of cuffed, tunneled dialysis catheters in patients with end-stage renal disease.

J Vasc Access 2018 Oct 25:1129729818806121. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

5 Multidisciplinary Intensive Care Unit, Department of Anesthesia and Critical Care Medicine, Pitie-Salpetriere Hospital, Assistance Publique Hopitaux de Paris, School of Medicine, University Pierre and Marie Curie (UPMC), Paris, France.

Background:: In patients with end-stage renal disease, the use of cuffed, tunneled dialysis catheters for hemodialysis has become integral to treatment plans. Fluoroscopy is a widely accepted method for the insertion and positioning of cuffed dialysis catheters, because it is easy to use, accurate and reliable, and has a relatively low incidence of complications. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the feasibility of tunneled hemodialysis catheter placement without the use of fluoroscopy but with a dynamic ultrasound-imaging-based guided technique.

Current status of dialysis and vascular access in Taiwan.

J Vasc Access 2018 Oct 25:1129729818807336. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

1 School of Medicine, National Yang-Ming University, Taipei, Taiwan.

Due to the implementation of the National Health Insurance system in 1995, the number of patients receiving maintenance dialysis has increased rapidly. This contributed to Taiwan to be in an unfortunate position of possessing the highest prevalence of end-stage renal disease globally. Although the age-standardized incidence of end-stage renal disease gradually decreased to -1. Read More
