We describe a novel surgical technique to facilitate the second-stage elevation of the basilic or brachial vein in patients with first-stage brachial-basilic or autogenous brachial-brachial arteriovenous fistula by axial splitting of the medial antebrachial cutaneous nerve (MABCN). Filaments of the MABCN typically traverse the anterior aspect of the basilic and brachial veins. The second-stage elevation/shelf superficialization of the basilic or brachial vein, so as not to cause an injury to the MABCN, requ...
A brachiobasilic arteriovenous fistula (BB-AVF) can provide access for haemodialysis in patients who are not eligible for a more superficial fistula. However, it is unclear whether one- or two-stage BB-AVF is the best option for patients.
Vascular access is essential for the implementation of hemodialysis (HD). The arteriovenous fistula (AVF) can be constructed in various locations using various veins. However, the quality of the veins will influence the construction site, as well as the functioning of the AVF. Careful analysis of the vascular network allows options for the development of new fistulas presentations. We present and discuss the case of a woman aged 69 years in HD in which a brachial-cephalic fistula with drainage to basilic ve...
The radiocephalic fistula dates back to the 1960s with good long-term survival and a low incidence of complications. The standard practice of creating an end cephalic vein to side radial artery fistula (ETS) has a high incidence of early thrombosis and failure to mature, which limits its efficacy. The hypothesis is that a 1.3- to 1.5-cm side-to-side with distal vein ligation anastomosis (STS) is associated with a lower early thrombosis rate and higher primary patency rate. We retrospectively evaluated all r...
Brescia-Cimino radiocephalic arteriovenous fistula (AVF) remains the first choice vascular access procedure for patients in need of long-term hemodialysis. Brachiocephalic fistulas are considered as a secondary option in almost all published guidelines. Recently in many reports, elbow and upper arm fistulas are recommended to be used as primary fistulas especially in elderly, diabetic, hypertensive patients. Elbow fistulas (brachiocephalic and brachiobasilic) should only rarely be constructed as primary fis...
Endovascular embolization has evolved to become the primary therapeutic option for dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs). While guaranteeing complete occlusion of the fistula orifice, the goal of DAVF embolization is also to ensure the patency of normal cerebral venous drainage. This paper describes a case of successful embolization of a complex DAVF in the superior sagittal sinus with a multistaged approach using a combination of transvenous and transarterial tactics. The strategies and techniques are discu...
Nearly 36,000 Americans a year present with locally advanced stage IIIA lung cancer, with an overall 5 year survivorship of 19%. Superior sulcus tumors are either stage IIB (T3N0), IIIA (T3,N1-2, or T4, N0-1), or IIIB (T4,N2) with only a slightly better 5-year survival rates (25 to 30% ). With such a grim outlook, physicians are inclined to extrapolate the available literature in an effort to provide the best chance for cure. The concept of surgery after induction therapy for superior sulcus tumors posits t...
As vascular surgeons strive to meet the Fistula First Initiative, some authors have observed a decrease in arteriovenous fistula (AVF) maturation rates in association with an increase in AVF creation. In May 2012, we adopted a practice change in an attempt to maintain the same high level of AVF creation while leading to a decrease in fistula failures.
Defects of the central upper lip present a challenge. A variety of techniques have been described, but most tend to efface the natural contours present in the philtrum and the cutaneous-mucosal vermilion border (Cupid's bow). Furthermore, the techniques typically require a second-stage procedure to improve the upper lip aesthetic. We discuss a novel technique using bilateral transposition flaps to reconstruct central defects of the upper lip that violate Cupid's bow while maintaining normal aesthetic landma...
We aim to present a unique case with discharging lacrimal gland fistula secondary to severe head trauma by an animal. A 9-year-old girl presented with serous fluid discharge from a cutaneous fistula in the left orbital region. The patient had history of surgery for traumatic frontal bone fracture and skin laceration in the superior orbital rim three weeks earlier. She underwent a complete ophthalmological examination and there was no anterior segment or fundus pathology. The orifice of the fistula was detec...
Choosing an appropriately sized vein reduces the risk of venous thromboembolism associated with peripherally inserted central catheters. This observational study described the diameters of the brachial, basilic, and cephalic veins and determined the effect of patient factors on vein size. Ultrasound was used to measure the veins of 176 participants. Vein diameter was similar in both arms regardless of hand dominance and side. Patient factors-including greater age, height, and weight, as well as male gender-...
Recent evidence indicates that fistula maturation and patency may be compromised in the elderly dialysis population compared with younger patients. The objective of this study was to characterize the short-term outcomes of arteriovenous fistulas and arteriovenous grafts for hemodialysis access in the Medicare population.
Excretion of the patency capsule (PC) within a certain timeframe may be used to demonstrate luminal patency prior to capsule endoscopy (CE). We aimed to determine how often further radiological imaging is needed to confirm luminal patency after PC, assess radiologists' ability to locate the PC on plain abdominal films and evaluate the outcomes of a novel computed tomography (CT) protocol for PC localisation.
We report the treatment of a proximal ilio-iliac arterio-venous fistula and distal omolateral hypogastric artery pseudoaneurysm 23 years after incurring a gunshot wound in a 43-year old man presenting with lower back pain. No cardiac, pulmonary or omolateral lower limb alteration was observed. Endovascular exclusion of the arterio-venous fistula and pseudoaneurysm was performed, which included pseudoaneurysm embolization. Three procedure-related complications were registered. The follow-up at 12 months reve...
To describe the surgical technique and outcomes of an one stage operation through modified posterior sagittal approach (PSAP) preserving the sphincter intact for anal agenesia with rectovestibula fistula.
DNA transposition plays key roles in genome diversity, pathogenesis, and evolution. Yet, structural and mechanistic information on transposition targeting and regulation is limited. Arias-Palomo and Berger now define the decameric organization of the AAA+ ATPase IstB, unveiling key insights into its targeting and regulation of IstA transposase activity.
Pathologic conditions of the brachial plexus often result in serious and disabling complications. With the increasing availability and use of new and powerful MRI sequences and coils, understanding and assessment of the complex anatomy and pathology of the brachial plexus have been greatly facilitated. These new technical developments have led to an improved assessment of brachial plexus lesions, thereby improving patient care. In this article we describe various MRI techniques for the evaluation of the bra...
Abstract Fistula development after esophageal resection is considered as one of the most serious postoperative complications. The authors reported a case on clinical experiences in the postoperative diagnostic and successful therapeutic management of a tracheomediastinal fistula after esophageal resection, using endoscopic application of fibrin glue. The early approach of an anastomotic insufficiency after esophageal resection because of a squamous cell carcinoma (pT3pN0M0G2) below the tracheal bifurcation ...
Limitations in abduction and external rotation are the sequel of brachial palsy. The purpose of this study was to evaluate functional outcomes of modified L'Episcopo procedure in children with brachial palsy who do not have gross shoulder joint subluxation.
Background: Postoperative pancreatic fistula is a relevant complication after pancreatoduodenectomy. Therefore, preoperative detection of high risk patients may be important. We evaluated preoperative CT-imaging by planimetry at the expected resection plane along the superior mesenteric vein and correlated the results with the incidence of postoperative pancreatic fistula. Patients and Methods: From 2009 to 2013, 123 patients with pancreatoduodenectomy underwent homogenous preoperative imaging and reconstru...
Ureteroduodenal fistula is a rare complication in urology. We report a case of 29-year-old man who presented with ureteroduodenal fistula. We have also discussed the management and treatment of this condition.
Arteriovenous fistula (AVF) access improves survival in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) compared with other modalities when used at first hemodialysis. Use varies between locations, but, to our knowledge, no study has related this finding to mortality on a national scale.
