Current Topics in Vascular Access: Superficialization of Arteriovenous Fistula.

Contrib Nephrol 2019 16;198:1-11. Epub 2019 Apr 16.

Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Kidney and Dialysis, Hyogo College of Medicine, Nishinomiya, Japan.

Background: An arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is considered the gold standard modality of vascular access (VA) for maintenance hemodialysis (HD) because of its superior patency, few complications, provision of high quality of life, and low risk of patient mortality. The rapid growth of the aging population and the high prevalence of comorbidities, particularly diabetes mellitus and peripheral vascular disease, in patients requiring HD inevitably deteriorate the ability to construct and maintain a conventional AVF because of these patients' insufficient vascular adaptability. Furthermore, a substantial proportion of patients undergoing HD encounter non-maturation AVF failure and mis-cannulation-related complications, resulting in the need for a temporary VA procedure.

Authors:
Jay W Granzow

Clin Exp Metastasis 2018 08 6;35(5-6):553-558. Epub 2018 Jul 6.

Harbor-UCLA Division of Plastic Surgery, Torrance, CA, USA.

Background/purpose: Lymphedema surgery, when integrated into a comprehensive lymphedema treatment program for patients, can provide effective and long-term improvements that non-surgical management alone cannot achieve. Such a treatment program can provide significant improvement for many issues such as recurring cellulitis infections, inability to wear clothing appropriate for the rest of their body size, loss of function of arm or leg, and desire to decrease the amount of lymphedema therapy and compression garment use.

Methods: The fluid predominant portion of lymphedema may be treated effectively with surgeries that involve transplantation of lymphatic tissue, called vascularized lymph node transfer (VLNT), or involve direct connections from the lymphatic system to the veins, called lymphaticovenous anastomoses (LVA).

Main Line Center for Laser Surgery, Ardmore, PA, USA.

Cryolipolysis is a noninvasive esthetic procedure that utilizes controlled cooling to reduce subcutaneous fat. Clinical studies have established its safety, efficacy, and tolerability for fat reduction in a variety of areas including the abdomen, flanks, thighs, submental area, arms, back, and chest. Because of obvious esthetic concerns, long-term unilateral studies leaving an untreated flank, thigh, or arm are not performed, but serve as ideal controls for weight gain or loss or re-distribution of fat for other reasons.
