Central Venous Stenosis after Hemodialysis: Case Reports and Relationships to Catheters and Cardiac Implantable Devices.

Cardiorenal Med 2019 Feb 27;9(3):135-144. Epub 2019 Feb 27.

Nephrology Division, University of Naples - "Luigi Vanvitelli" - Medical School, Naples,

The appropriate vascular access for hemodialysis in patients with cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIED) is undefined. We describe two cases of end-stage renal disease patients with CIED and tunneled central venous catheter (CVC) who developed venous cava stenosis: (1) a 70-year-old man with sinus node disease and pacemaker in 2013, CVC, and a Brescia-Cimino forearm fistula in 2015; (2) a 75-year-old woman with previous ventricular arrhythmia with implanted defibrillator in 2014 and CVC in 2016. In either case, after about 1 year from CVC insertion, patients developed superior vena cava (SVC) syndrome due to stenosis diagnosed by axial computerized tomography. Read More

Prevention of hemodialysis catheter infections: Ointments, dressings, locks, and catheter hub devices.

Hemodial Int 2018 10 8;22(S2):S75-S82. Epub 2018 Nov 8.

Division of Nephrology, Department of Medicine, Montefiore Medical Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, New York, USA.

Tunneled central venous catheters used for the provision of hemodialysis are associated with excess morbidity and mortality. Catheter related exit site and blood stream infections are major risks of their use. Although catheter-avoidance is the best strategy to reduce infections and mortality in the hemodialysis population, the use of catheters remains unacceptably high. Read More

Anatomy Revisited: Hemodialysis Catheter Malposition into the Chest.

Blood Purif 2019 17;47(1-3):58-61. Epub 2018 Sep 17.

Department of Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation, International Renal Research Institute, San Bortolo Hospital, Vicenza, Italy.

In most situations, central catheters are implanted in the right jugular vein as initial access for hemodialysis. However, after repeated punctures, the proximal vessels become stenosed and thrombosed and misplacement is likely to occur. Correct catheter position in the vein can be easily ascertained with X-ray or cross-sectional CT imaging. Read More

J Vasc Surg 2018 12 28;68(6):1865-1871. Epub 2018 Jun 28.

Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, Calif; Department of Surgery, Huntington Memorial Hospital, Pasadena, Calif. Electronic address:

Objective: Tunneled dialysis catheter (TDC) use has been associated with increased infectious complications and mortality in hemodialysis-dependent patients. Unfortunately, patients who undergo fistula revisions or creation of a new arteriovenous fistula frequently require a TDC during the postoperative period. Bovine carotid artery grafts (BCAGs) can be used as an early-access dialysis conduit to reduce TDC dependence. Read More

Self-cannulation of the vascular access in home hemodialysis: Overcoming patient-level barriers.

Semin Dial 2018 09 11;31(5):449-454. Epub 2018 May 11.

Department of Nephrology, University Health Network, Toronto General Hospital, Toronto, ON, Canada.

Patients with end-stage kidney disease who are considering home hemodialysis (HHD) face the challenge of learning to self-cannulate their arteriovenous access. Current practice discourages the use of tunneled central venous catheters, with recent indications that self-cannulating patients have superior outcomes. Patient-level barriers do not appear to preclude a successful HHD program and should not be viewed as insurmountable by healthcare staff or patients. Read More

A novel technique of axillary vein puncture involving peripherally inserted central venous catheters for a small basilic vein.

J Vasc Access 2018 May 29;19(3):311-315. Epub 2018 Mar 29.

1 Department of Surgery, Tohoku Rosai Hospital, Sendai, Japan.

Purpose: Peripherally inserted central venous catheters are some of the most useful devices for vascular access used globally. Peripherally inserted central venous catheters have a low rate of fatal mechanical complications when compared to non-tunnel central venous catheters. However, as peripherally inserted central venous catheter access requires a smaller vein, there is a high risk of thrombosis. Read More

Placement issues of hemodialysis catheters with pre-existing central lines and catheters.

J Vasc Access 2018 Jul 15;19(4):366-369. Epub 2018 Mar 15.

Vascular Institute of New York, Brooklyn, NY, USA.

Objective: It has been a widely accepted practice that a previous placed pacemaker, automatic implantable cardioverter defibrillators, or central line can be a contraindication to placing a hemodialysis catheter in the ipsilateral jugular vein. Fear of dislodging pacing wires, tunneling close to the battery site or causing venous obstruction has been a concern for surgeons and interventionalists alike. We suggest that this phobia may be unfounded. Read More

Pregnancy and hemodialysis access: A case for patient satisfaction in favor of a tunneled dialysis catheter.

J Vasc Access 2018 Nov 5;19(6):663-666. Epub 2018 Mar 5.

2 Division of Nephrology, Salisbury VA Health Care System, Salisbury, NC, USA.

While an arteriovenous fistula is the best available access, many patients continue to rely on a tunneled hemodialysis catheter for dialysis therapy. Despite the highest risk of catheter-related bacteremia and associated morbidity and mortality, patients often prefer tunneled hemodialysis catheter to avoid pain associated with cannulation of an arteriovenous access. We report three tunneled hemodialysis catheter-dependent end-stage renal disease patients (age: 38, 35, 33 years), who became pregnant. Read More

Vascular access for therapeutic plasma exchange.

Transfusion 2018 02;58 Suppl 1:580-589

Department of Pathology, Division of Laboratory Medicine, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Alabama.

Therapeutic plasma exchange is an apheresis modality in which plasma is separated from the blood cellular components ex vivo, discarded, and replaced with an isosmotic fluid (most commonly 5% albumin) to maintain appropriate oncotic pressure in the patient. Therapeutic plasma exchange is used in the treatment of many diseases and indications. The recent seventh edition of the American Society for Apheresis guidelines indicates approximately 72 diseases and 116 indications for which therapeutic plasma exchange may be effective. Read More

Division of Transfusion Medicine and Hemostasis, Department of Pathology, UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, Texas.

Tunneled central venous catheters with ports are increasingly used for therapeutic apheresis procedures. Vortex ports have been used as access for therapeutic apheresis procedures, but are not ideal for therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) procedures due to lower flow rates. We performed an in vitro experiment to compare flow characteristics of the single-lumen Vortex port (AngioDynamics) with the single-lumen TidalPort (Norfolk Medical). Read More

Division of Infectious Diseases, Department of Medicine, Washington University School of Medicine, St Louis, Missouri.

Implantable vascular access devices are frequently used in patients who have poor peripheral venous access. These devices can be partially implanted as tunneled and nontunneled central catheters, or they can be fully implanted as ports. Compared with long-term catheters, implanted ports have lower infection rates and improved perceptions of quality of life, but complications still occur in 2% to 18% of patients, frequently requiring removal of the device.

[Infections on catheters in hemodialysis: Temporal fluctuations of the infectious risk].

Nephrol Ther 2017 Nov 22;13(6):463-469. Epub 2017 Sep 22.

Polyclinique Saint-Côme, 7, rue Jean-Jacques-Bernard, 60204 Compiègne, France.

Background: International guidelines recommend to limit the long-term use of central-veinous catheters in patients undergoing hemodialysis, because they expose the patient to a higher infectious risk than the fistulas. However, for some patients with comorbidity, switching to a permanent vascular access is not possible. In such case, the catheter is used for a longer period. Read More

Vascular Access Placement Order and Outcomes in Hemodialysis Patients: A Longitudinal Study.

Am J Nephrol 2017 21;46(4):268-275. Epub 2017 Sep 21.

Department of Internal Medicine, Section on Nephrology, Wake Forest School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, NC, USA.

Background: Arteriovenous accesses (AVA) in patients performing hemodialysis (HD) are labeled "permanent" for AV fistulas (AVF) or grafts (AVG) and "temporary" for tunneled central venous catheters (TCVC). Durability and outcomes of permanent vascular accesses based on the sequence in which they were placed or used receives little attention. This study analyzed longitudinal transitions between TCVC-based and AVA-based HD outcomes according to the order of placement. Read More

Vascular 2018 Jun 13;26(3):338-340. Epub 2017 Sep 13.

Vascular Institute of New York, Brooklyn, NY, USA.

Objective With the implementation of the K-DOQI guidelines, more patients are in need of long-term dialysis catheters until maturation of the arteriovenous fistula. However, on occasion, when placing a tunneled cuffed catheter for hemodialysis, we have encountered difficulty with passing the guidewire in spite of demonstration of a patent cervical portion of the internal jugular vein on duplex. Herein, we review our experience with intraoperative venoplasty for placement of Tesio™ catheters (Medcomp Harleysville, PA). Read More

Atypical use of PICC in infants and small children: a unicentric experience.

J Vasc Access 2017 Nov 29;18(6):535-539. Epub 2017 Jul 29.

Department of Anaesthesia, Great Ormond Street Hospital, London - UK.

Introduction: The peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) are vascular access devices (VAD) that are increasingly being used in the pediatric population. If a small vein caliber prevents positioning the catheter in the arm, the following step is to position the same catheter in the supraclavicular area, which can be defined as an off-label use or "atypical" approach, first described by Pittiruti.

Materials And Methods: We retrospectively reviewed PICC positioning with puncture-site in the supra-clavicular area ("atypical" PICC insertion) and then tunneled on the chest. Read More
