The purpose of this study is to determine whether the long term use of the experimental Vascular WrapTM Paclitaxel-Eluting Mesh is safe in the treatment of subjects needing hemodialysis access (via an ePTFE graft).
The primary objective of this study is to determine long term safety of the Lifespan® ePTFE Vascular Graft and Vascular WrapTM Paclitaxel-Eluting Mesh in comparison to the Lifespan® graft alone.

This study evaluates the safety and performance of a new vascular graft made of POSS-PCU as a vascular access conduit for haemodialysis. 30 patients requiring access for dialysis will be e...
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of a novel, tissue-engineered vascular prosthesis, the Human Acellular Vascular Graft, HAVG. The HAVG is intended as an alte...
The objective of this study is to evaluate the use of wrapping an ACL graft with a collagen matrix tissue wrap and injecting autologous bone marrow aspirate concentrate under the wrapping ...
The goal of the present study is the comparison of different dialysis strategies in critically ill patients with acute renal failure on the intensive care unit. Patients are treated with e...
This is a multi-center clinical study in subjects requiring arteriovenous grafts in the upper extremity for hemodialysis access. All subjects will provide informed consent before undergoi...
It is not clear whether renal allograft removal affects the outcome of renal retransplantation. This study aimed to determine the effect of allograft nephrectomy (AN) and no-AN (No AN) on renal retran...
Kidney transplantation (KT) is the treatment of choice for end-stage renal disease. Preemptive KT (PKT) should be considered when glomerular filtration rate is
Delayed graft function (DGF) is a common complication after kidney transplantation in the era of accepting an equal number of brain- and circulatory-death donor kidneys in the Netherlands. To identify...
Hepatorenal syndrome (HRS) is a life-threatening complication of advanced liver cirrhosis that is characterized by hemodynamic alterations in the kidney and other vascular beds. Cytochrome P(CYP)-450 ...
Renal transplantation is the first-line therapy for eligible patients with end-stage kidney disease. However, approximately 20 % of cadaveric graft recipients need to start dialysis at 5 years. The ...
Therapy for the insufficient cleansing of the BLOOD by the kidneys based on dialysis and including hemodialysis, PERITONEAL DIALYSIS, and HEMODIAFILTRATION.
Artificially produced membranes, such as semipermeable membranes used in artificial kidney dialysis (RENAL DIALYSIS), monomolecular and bimolecular membranes used as models to simulate biological CELL MEMBRANES. These membranes are also used in the process of GUIDED TISSUE REGENERATION.
Obstruction of flow in biological or prosthetic vascular grafts.
Portable peritoneal dialysis using the continuous (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) presence of peritoneal dialysis solution in the peritoneal cavity except for periods of drainage and instillation of fresh solution.
The immune responses of a host to a graft. A specific response is GRAFT REJECTION.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
In medicine, dialysis is a process for removing waste and excess water from the blood, and is primarily used to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. Dialysis may be used for those with an acute disturba...
