Pentosidine in chronic hemodialysis patients: relation with arteriovenous fistula morphology and function.

Int Urol Nephrol 2019 Apr 22. Epub 2019 Apr 22.

Department of Nephrology, "Iuliu Haţieganu" University of Medicine and Pharmacy, 3-5 Clinicilor Street, 400006, Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

Purpose: It has been suggested that advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are involved in atherogenesis, vascular calcification and remodeling, including neointimal hyperplasia, in renal and non-renal patients. Their relevance for arteriovenous fistula (AVF) function has been poorly studied to date, with only one clinical study addressing the issue of thrombosis of vascular access in relation to AGEs in dialysis patients. We aimed to evaluate the relationship between serum pentosidine and AVF morphology and function. Read More

Multiorgan paradoxical embolism in an elderly female with a patent foramen ovale: a case report.

Med Pharm Rep 2019 Jan 15;92(1):83-86. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

First Department of Surgery, Saint George General Hospital of Chania, Crete, Greece.

Paradoxical embolism is an uncommon cause of arterial occlusion with a high mortality burden. Current evidence suggests that patent foramen ovale is the most important etiological factor of paradoxical embolism, by acting as a pathway for a thromboembolic material originating from the peripheral veins, passing through the lungs and entering the systemic circulation. Here we present a case of paradoxical embolism in the mesenteric and renal arteries associated with pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis in an elderly woman with no predisposing risk factor.

Stent Placement Across the Renal Vein Inflow in Patients Undergoing Venous Reconstruction Preserves Renal Function and Renal Vein Patency: Experience in 93 Patients.

J Endovasc Ther 2019 Apr 25;26(2):258-264. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

2 Department of Radiology, Division of Vascular and Interventional Radiology, Michigan Health System, Ann Arbor, MI, USA.

Purpose: To determine if stent placement across the renal vein inflow affects kidney function and renal vein patency.

Methods: Between June 2008 and September 2016, 93 patients (mean age 39 years, range 15-70; 54 women) with iliocaval occlusion underwent venous stent placement and were retrospectively reviewed. For this analysis, the patients were separated into treatment and control groups: 51 (55%) patients had suprarenal and infrarenal iliocaval venous disease requiring inferior vena cava stent reconstruction across the renal vein inflow (treatment group) and 42 (45%) patients had iliac vein stenting sparing the renal veins (control group).
