The objective of this study was to analyse the outcome of autogenous brachiocephalic fistula for dialysis purposes and to determine modifiable and non-modifiable patient-related factors of influence on the patency of a newly created fistula.
In patients with a high risk of fistula immaturity, we created arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) combined with brachial artery superficialization. With this procedure, the superficialized arteries are used as drawing routes and the AVFs as returning routes. This is a technical report about AVFs combined with brachial artery superficialization.
Most guidelines recommend the creation of arteriovenous fistula (AVF) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage 4. However, an increasing number of studies suggest that early AVF creation leads to high rates of AVF failure and death before dialysis commencement. Only the Japanese guideline recommends AVF creation at CKD stage 5; however, no data are available regarding access-related outcomes at this stage.
The aim of this article is to assess and compare the rate of primary patency achieved by drug-eluting balloon angioplasty (DEBA) and conventional balloon angioplasty (CBA) in hemodialysis arteriovenous fistula stenoses.
To prospectively evaluate the perioperative safety, early complications and satisfaction of patients who underwent the implantation of central catheters peripherally inserted via basilic vein.
The objective was to assess the outcomes of a one-stage approach to bladder stones in the setting of a vesicovaginal fistula, performing fistula repair concurrently with stone extraction.
The Antirrhinum DNA transposon Tam3 uniquely demonstrates low temperature-dependent transposition (LTDT), so transposition does not occur at high temperatures. We previously showed that the detainment of Tam3 transposase (TPase) at the plasma membrane occurs when transposition is inactive, and that TPase is released at the permissive state of Tam3 transposition. LTDT of Tam3 is attributed to interactions between Tam3 and its host. In this addendum, we propose a model to explain the LTDT of Tam3, which is re...
Secondary graft-oesophageal fistula is a fatal complication of aortic arch replacement. We report a successful two-stage surgical management of a graft-oesophageal fistula seen in a 68-year-old woman 3 years after total aortic arch replacement. She presented with a prolonged intractable fever without haematemesis. The fistula occurred between the distal aortic anastomosis and oesophagus; the entire graft was surrounded by air. In the first-stage operation, we performed re-replacement of the entire infected ...
Whether statins improve arteriovenous fistula (AVF) outcomes is still a matter of debate. Taking into consideration the existing physicochemical differences between individual drugs, this study evaluates the impact of three different statins (atorvastatin, rosuvastatin and simvastatin) on one-stage and two-stage AVF outcomes.
Radio-cephalic arteriovenous fistula (RCAVF) is the gold standard vascular access for end-stage chronic kidney disease patients. Exercises after arteriovenous fistula (AVF) creation improve maturation. No articles are published regarding neuromuscular electrostimulation (NMES) in AVF maturation.
Autogenous fistulas and in particular radiocephalic fistulas are recommended as the first vascular access for hemodialysis. Unfortunately, the rates of early failure and non-maturation are very high. For more than a decade, brachial plexus block has been proposed as the anesthesia of choice for fistula creation due to its beneficial sympathectomy-like effect, causing vasodilation and attenuation of spasm. Until recently, there was not a single randomized clinical study supporting this proposition. Because p...
We describe the use of time-resolved MR angiography in the diagnosis of cervical epidural arteriovenous fistula before final diagnosis and embolization was achieved by digital subtraction angiography. A 42-year-old woman was referred to us because of headache and dizziness, in addition to radiculopathy of the right superior limb. Angiographic examinations documented a direct high-flow arteriovenous fistula between the right vertebral artery and the cervical epidural venous plexus. The point of fistula was l...
The patency capsule is designed to evaluate the patency of the small bowel before administration of small-bowel capsule endoscopy (SBCE) in patients at high risk of retention. The utilization of a patency capsule may be associated with a risk of symptomatic retention, but very few cases have been reported to date. The aim of our study was to describe our experience with this rare complication of a patency capsule.
Endothelial dysfunction is considered the first stage in the development of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, and brachial flow-mediated dilation (FMD) is a measure of endothelial function. It is uncertain which of central systolic aortic pressure (CAP) or brachial systolic blood pressure (SBP) is more strongly associated with FMD. Therefore, we examined the correlations of CAP and SBP with FMD in Japanese men.
An 86-year-old man with a long-term habit of ethanol consumption was admitted due to massive transudate ascites and leg edema. Abdominal computed tomography revealed a dilated main pancreatic duct and atrophied pancreatic parenchyma, leading to the diagnosis of chronic pancreatitis. Moreover, the portal vein was enhanced in the early arterial phase, which indicated the presence of an arterioportal fistula. The fistula was located between the posterior superior pancreaticoduodenal artery and the portal vein ...
Coronary artery fistula is a rare anomaly; large fistulae may result in myocardial ischemia from coronary steal. We present the case of a 73-year-old male who presented with exertional angina; imaging demonstrated severe coronary artery disease and a large coronary artery fistula. Ligation of the fistula resulted in severe right ventricular failure and cardiogenic shock. After reestablishing flow to the fistula, the patient recovered. We speculate that the ischemia-induced angiogenesis from the congenitally...
Objective: Toe-brachial index (TBI) is usually measured in the great toe (TBI-1). However, this is not always possible. To determine the usefulness of TBI measurement in the second toe (TBI-2), we examined the relation between systolic pressure in the second toe (toe pressure [TP-2]) and that in the great toe (TP-1) and evaluated the association between TBI and ankle-brachial index (ABI). Materials and Methods: We retrospectively analyzed patients who underwent a series of measurements of TBI-2, TBI-1, and ...
All hemodialysis (HD) patients are generally recommended to create a fistula first; but to create a mature arteriovenous fistula (AVF) can be challenging in elderly individuals. It is unclear if elderly incident HD patients derive a survival benefit from an AVF over an arteriovenous graft (AVG) or a tunneled central venous catheter (TDC).
Shoulder surgery is often performed with the patient in the so called "beach-chair position" with elevation of the upper part of the body. The anesthetic procedure can be general anesthesia and/or regional block, usually interscalenic brachial plexus block. We present a case of brachial plexus palsy with a possible mechanism of traction based on the electromyographic and clinical findings, although a possible contribution of nerve block cannot be excluded.
Our study aimed to explore whether the ankle-brachial index (ABI) and brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) were associated with albuminuria in community-based Han Chinese.
While esophageal fistula formation in the adjacent organs is associated with high rates of morbidity and mortality, the management of non-aortic arterio-esophageal fistula has not been frequently reported.
A new, selective way to form C-C bonds has been developed. In this report we disclose the homolytic aromatic substitution via C→O transposition coupled with elimination of formaldehyde (as traceless linker). Computational analysis indicates the selectivity can be tuned by sterics in the starting materials following an ipso-attack that leads to the C→O transposition.
Tortuous and dolichoectatic vertebrobasilar arteries can impinge on the brainstem and cranial nerves to cause compression syndromes. Transposition techniques are often required to decompress the brainstem with dolichoectatic pathology. We describe our evolution of an anteromedial transposition technique and its efficacy in decompressing the brainstem and relieving symptoms.
Gastrocolic fistulas in children are most commonly seen after placement of a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy. We present a 14-year-old girl who developed a gastrocolic fistula following accidental corrosive acid ingestion. On evaluation of her symptoms, a barium swallow identified the gastrocolic fistula. It healed spontaneously in 3 months. This was both unexpected and remarkable. To the best of our knowledge this is the first case of a gastrocolic fistula occurring following corrosive ingestion.
