Faculty of Medicine and Health Studies, Jan Kochanowski University, 25-369 Kielce, Poland.

: An increase in the incidence of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) is associated with the need for a wider use of vascular access. Although arteriovenous (A-V) fistula is a preferred form of vascular access, for various reasons, permanent catheters are implanted in many patients. A retrospective analysis of clinical data was carried out in 398 patients (204 women) who in 2010-2016 were subjected to permanent dialysis catheters implantation as first vascular access or following A-V fistula dysfunction.

Management of hydroureteronephrosis secondary to an aberrant middle rectal artery in a patient with congenital unilateral renal agenesis.

BMJ Case Rep 2019 Nov 24;12(11). Epub 2019 Nov 24.

Gold Coast University Hospital, Southport, Queensland, Australia.

Presented here is the case of a 21-year-old man, with a family history of unilateral renal agenesis, who presented with obstruction of his solitary functioning right kidney. Initially thought to be secondary to an obturator fossa hernia on endoscopic and retrograde pyelography assessment, diagnosis of obstruction secondary to an aberrant middle rectal artery was determined at laparotomy and division of this vessel relieved the patient's obstruction without any short-term or long-term complications. To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is the first reported case in the literature of hydroureteronephrosis secondary to an aberrant middle rectal artery. Read More

Sulfatases, in Particular Sulf1, Are Important for the Integrity of the Glomerular Filtration Barrier in Zebrafish.

Biomed Res Int 2019 22;2019:4508048. Epub 2019 Jul 22.

Department of Nephrology and Hypertension, Hannover Medical School, Hannover, Germany.

The 6-O-endosulfatases (sulfs) are important enzymatic components involved in the regulation of heparan sulfate by altering the sulfatation pattern. Specifically in the kidney, sulfs have been implicated in the glomerular podocyte-endothelial cell crosstalk and in the preservation of the glomerular filtration barrier (GFB) in different mouse models. Since it has been shown that in zebrafish larvae, Sulf1, Sulf2a, and Sulf2b are expressed in the pronephric kidney we set out to establish if a reduction in sulf expression leads to GFB dysfunction.

Triple-balloon-assisted -butyl-2-cyanoacrylate embolization of a cirsoid renal arteriovenous malformation.

Vasa 2020 Mar 15;49(2):147-150. Epub 2019 Aug 15.

Department of Radiology, Graduate School of Medicine, University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan.

We report a patient with a cirsoid renal arteriovenous malformation (AVM) causing massive hematuria that was successfully embolized by -butyl-2-cyanoacrylate under triple-balloon occlusion. Proximal balloons were placed in the renal artery and vein for flow control, and a coaxial microballoon was placed in a feeding artery of the AVM to control the delivery of -butyl-2-cyanoacrylate. Under triple-balloon occlusion, -butyl-2-cyanoacrylate embolization achieved complete occlusion of the AVM with no procedure-related complications, such as renal infarction. Read More

Outcomes After Percutaneous Angioplasty of Arteriovenous Fistulas and Grafts in African American Patients.

Can Assoc Radiol J 2019 Aug;70(3):300-306

Department of Internal Medicine, University of Chicago Medical Center, Chicago, IL, USA. Electronic address:

Purpose: Arteriovenous fistulas and grafts, necessary for hemodialysis, may develop stenoses due to neointimal hyperplasia, which often require percutaneous transluminal angioplasty. Patient and lesion characteristics were evaluated prior to angioplasty and were correlated with 1- and 6-month outcomes.

Materials And Methods: This was an observational study of African American hemodialysis patients who presented for angioplasty of a dysfunctional fistula or graft. Read More

Murine Model of Central Venous Stenosis using Aortocaval Fistula with an Outflow Stenosis.

J Vis Exp 2019 07 11(149). Epub 2019 Jul 11.

Department of Surgery, Yale University; Vascular Biology and Therapeutics Program, Yale University; Department of Vascular Surgery, VA Connecticut Healthcare Systems;

Central venous stenosis is an important entity contributing to arteriovenous fistula (AVF) failure. A murine AVF model was modified to create a partial ligation of the inferior vena cava (IVC) in the outflow of the fistula, mimicking central venous stenosis. Technical aspects of this model are introduced. Read More

[Endovascular embolization of arteriovenous fistula in a patient with hand ischemia].

Khirurgiia (Mosk) 2019 (6):111-116

Department of transplantology, nephrology and artificial organs, Vladimirsky Moscow Regional Research and Clinical Institute, Moscow, Russia.

We present a case report of atypical hand ischemia probably caused by a combination of venous insufficiency and steal syndrome in patient with arteriovenous fistula for hemodialysis. Unclear clinical symptoms may be due to severe trophic disorders (delayed treatment) or combination of two complications (steal syndrome and venous insufficiency). At the same time, we did not get any diagnostic data confirming organic injury of the upper limb veins or central veins. Read More
