This study compared clinical outcomes between the use of in situ and free internal thoracic artery grafts in patients with upper extremity arteriovenous fistula who underwent coronary artery bypass.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: The Annals of thoracic surgery
This study aims to evaluate the application of color Doppler ultrasound in monitoring the complications of autologous arteriovenous fistula in hemodialysis patients.Patients with maintenance hemodialy...
Chronic kidney disease has become a serious public health problem in China. Our study is to explore effect of hydraulic expansion on arteriovenous fistula (AVF) of hemodialysis patients.
Discussed in the article is the literature data on the background, causes, and mechanisms of the development of degenerative aneurysmatic transformation of the afferent artery in a long-functioning ar...
Chronic hemodialysis requires a mode of vascular access through an arteriovenous fistula (AVF), a prosthetic arteriovenous graft (AVG), or a central venous catheter (CVC). AVF is recommended over AVG ...
The time between the creation of an arteriovenous fistula (AVF) and its successful use is significantly longer in hemodialysis (HD) patients in the United States compared to those in other countries, ...
40000 patients are hemodialysis each year in France . In the case of chronic care, 78% of patients have an arteriovenous fistula. In order to perform the hemodialysis session, 2 technique...
A well-functioning vascular access is essential for effective hemodialysis. The native arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is the preferred vascular access because of the lower thrombosis and infe...
There is no randomized control study to determine if the beneficial effects of beraprost sodium could improve the patency of arteriovenous fistula in hemodialysis patients. Therefore, this...
Isometric exercise has been shown to increase the diameter and the blood flow rate of forearm veins.At present, more studies focus on the perioperative period to promote the maturation of ...
Arm vein intermittently gripping arm movements, can promote the increased diameter of arteriovenous fistula, which enhance the maturity of fistula, the effect of lack of empirical research...
Malformations of CORONARY VESSELS, either arteries or veins. Included are anomalous origins of coronary arteries; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; CORONARY ANEURYSM; MYOCARDIAL BRIDGING; and others.
An abnormal direct communication between an artery and a vein without passing through the CAPILLARIES. An A-V fistula usually leads to the formation of a dilated sac-like connection, arteriovenous aneurysm. The locations and size of the shunts determine the degree of effects on the cardiovascular functions such as BLOOD PRESSURE and HEART RATE.
A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
A vessel that directly interconnects an artery and a vein, and that acts as a shunt to bypass the capillary bed. Not to be confused with surgical anastomosis, nor with arteriovenous fistula.
