Catheter-related obstruction of the right brachiocephalic vein following hemodialysis in a patient with lupus nephritis.

J Vasc Access 2020 Jun 2:1129729820926081. Epub 2020 Jun 2.

Division of Nephrology, First Department of Integrated Medicine, Saitama Medical Center, Jichi Medical University, Saitama, Japan.

Vascular access is necessary for hemodialysis, and in some cases where it is difficult to establish an arteriovenous fistula or arteriovenous graft, a permanent hemodialysis catheter may be used. However, serious catheter-related complications, such as central vein stenosis or thrombosis, can occur. We herein present a case of complete brachiocephalic vein obstruction in a patient with lupus nephritis receiving hemodialysis using a tunneled hemodialysis catheter. Read More

A Novel Inside-out Access Approach for Hemodialysis Catheter Placement in Patients With Thoracic Central Venous Occlusion.

Am J Kidney Dis 2020 Apr 29;75(4):480-487. Epub 2019 Nov 29.

Department of Nephrology, Medical University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria.

Rationale & Objective: Left-sided internal jugular and all subclavian central venous catheters (CVCs) cause thoracic central vein occlusions (TCVOs) more often than right-sided internal jugular catheters. To enable right-sided CVC placement in patients with TCVO, an inside-out access (IOA) approach was established at 3 vascular access centers in Europe involving use of a novel IOA device advanced from the right femoral vein. In the current analysis, we assessed the eligibility and success rate of this IOA approach in a cohort of patients with TCVO requiring a tunneled dialysis catheter. Read More

Trends in Central Venous Catheter Insertions by Anesthesia Providers: An Analysis of the Medicare Physician Supplier Procedure Summary From 2007 to 2016.

Anesth Analg 2020 04;130(4):1026-1034

From the Department of Anesthesia and Critical Care, University of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois.

Background: Central line insertion is a core skill for anesthesiologists. Although recent technical advances have increased the safety of central line insertion and reduced the risk of central line-associated infection, noninvasive hemodynamic monitoring and improved intravenous access techniques have also reduced the need for perioperative central venous access. We hypothesized that the number of central lines inserted by anesthesiologists has decreased over the past decade. Read More

Department of Nursing, Professor of Nurse Anesthesiology and Vascular Access, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Athens, Greece. Electronic address:

Tunneled peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) offer several advantages such as an exit site at the green zone no matter where the puncture point is and a long subcutaneous route, which is considered a shield against infections and provides comfort to the patient. Clinicians could choose the proper exact exit site so as to avoid blood leakage from the exit point. The aim of the study was to assess the value of the tunneled PICCs versus normal PICCs with no long subcutaneous route. Read More

A randomized pilot study comparing graft-first to fistula-first strategies in older patients with incident end-stage kidney disease: Clinical rationale and study design.

Contemp Clin Trials Commun 2019 Jun 9;14:100357. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

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

Timely placement of an arteriovenous (AV) vascular access (native AV fistula [AVF] or prosthetic AV graft [AVG]) is necessary to limit the use of tunneled central venous catheters (TCVC) in patients with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) treated with hemodialysis (HD). National guidelines recommend placement of AVF as the AV access of first choice in all patients to improve patient survival. The benefits of AVF over AVG are less certain in the older adults, as age-related biological changes independently modulate patient outcomes. Read More

The forearm arteriovenous graft between the brachial artery and the brachial vein as a reliable dialysis vascular access for patients with inadequate superficial veins.

J Vasc Surg 2019 Jul 17;70(1):199-207.e4. Epub 2019 Mar 17.

Nephrology and Dialysis Unit, USL Toscana Nord Ovest-Versilia Hospital, Lido di Camaiore, Lucca, Italy.

Objective: The arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is recommended as the preferred hemodialysis access. However, placing an AVF in all patients may result in poor access outcomes and increased central venous catheter (CVC) use because of increased comorbid conditions, age, and suboptimal vessels. In patients with inadequate superficial veins for AVFs, the use of the brachial veins for creation of forearm arteriovenous grafts (AVGs) has received limited attention. Read More

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

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

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

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

West London Renal and Transplant Centre, Hammersmith Hospital, Imperial College Healthcare National Health Service Trust, London, UK

Background And Objectives: Central venous catheters have traditionally provided access for urgent hemodialysis, but are also sometimes advocated as an option for older or more comorbid patients. Adverse effects of this type of dialysis access include central venous stenosis, for which the risk factors and consequences are incompletely understood.

Design, Setting, Participants, & Measurements: We conducted two studies within the same population cohort, comprising all patients starting hemodialysis in a single center from January 2006 to December 2013. Read More

Misplacement of Tunneled Hemodialysis Catheter into Azygos Vein: Left or Right Jugular Insertion Has Similar Susceptibility.

Blood Purif 2019 14;48(1):1-9. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Nephrology, University of Hong Kong-Shenzhen Hospital, Shenzhen, China,

Background: Central venous catheter (CVC) is commonly used to provide access for hemodialysis (HD) when arteriovenous access is not available. The misplacement of CVC into azygos vein (AV) is a rare but a potential serious complication. Previous reports communicated the opinion that left-sided catheterization predisposed to AV misplacement, but these reports concentrated on peripherally inserted CVCs, placed for indications rather than HD.

Complications From Tunneled Hemodialysis Catheters: A Canadian Observational Cohort Study.

Am J Kidney Dis 2019 04 12;73(4):467-475. Epub 2019 Jan 12.

Division of Nephrology, Department of Medicine, London Health Sciences Centre, London; Division of Nephrology, Department of Medicine, University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada. Electronic address:

Rationale & Objective: Clinical practice guidelines discourage the use of central venous catheters (CVCs) for vascular access in dialysis. However, some patients have inadequate vessels for arteriovenous fistula creation or choose to use a dialysis catheter. The risks associated with CVC use and their relationship to patient age are poorly characterized. Read More

Vascular access for hemodialysis: Current practice in Vietnam.

J Vasc Access 2019 May 31;20(1_suppl):20-23. Epub 2018 Dec 31.

Hemodialysis Department, Bach Mai Hospital, Hanoi, Vietnam.

A well-functioning vascular access is a mainstay to perform an efficient hemodialysis procedure, which directly affects the quality of life in hemodialysis patients. We use three main types of access: native arteriovenous fistula, arteriovenous graft, and central venous catheter. Arteriovenous fistula remains the first and best choice for chronic hemodialysis.

Immediate-access grafts provide comparable patency to standard grafts, with fewer reinterventions and catheter-related complications.

J Vasc Surg 2019 03 24;69(3):883-889. Epub 2018 Oct 24.

Division of Vascular Surgery, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pittsburgh, Pa.

Background: No independent comparisons, with midterm follow-up, of standard arteriovenous grafts (SAVGs) and immediate-access arteriovenous grafts (IAAVGs) exist. The goal of this study was to compare "real-world" performance of SAVGs and IAAVGs.

Methods: Consecutive patients who underwent placement of a hemodialysis graft between November 2014 and April 2016 were retrospectively identified from the electronic medical record and Vascular Quality Initiative database at two tertiary centers. 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

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
