Comparison of Bovine Carotid Artery and Expanded Polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) for Permanent Hemodialysis Access

2014-07-24 14:10:47 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The investigators did a randomized control trial comparing bovine carotid artery grafts with ePTFE grafts for patients that need hemodialysis access. The goal of the study was to determine differences in primary and assisted patency rates and frequency of complications between these two types of grafts. The investigators' hypothesis was that bovine carotid artery grafts more closely mimic autologous tissue and therefore, would provide better patency and fewer complications.

Description

Objective: To understand how bovine carotid artery (BCA) grafts compare to cuffed polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) grafts as conduits for hemodialysis access in terms of patency and complications.

Background: Many hemodialysis patients do not have adequate anatomy for native arteriovenous fistulas. In these patients, synthetic conduits remain the only option for permanent hemodialysis access. We sought to compare the standard cuffed ePTFE with bovine carotid artery grafts as this has not been undertaken since the 1970's.

Methods: Following Institutional Review Board approval, a prospective, randomized controlled trial was conducted enrolling 29 patients in the BCA group and 28 patients in the ePTFE group. Univariate and multivariate analysis was undertaken to understand factors that affect complications. Patency rates were calculated using the Kaplan-Meyer method.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A severe irreversible decline in the ability of kidneys to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal failure, either acute (KIDNEY FAILURE, ACUTE) or chronic (KIDNEY FAILURE, CHRONIC), requires HEMODIALYSIS.

A complication of kidney diseases characterized by cell death involving KIDNEY PAPILLA in the KIDNEY MEDULLA. Damages to this area may hinder the kidney to concentrate urine resulting in POLYURIA. Sloughed off necrotic tissue may block KIDNEY PELVIS or URETER. Necrosis of multiple renal papillae can lead to KIDNEY FAILURE.

The end-stage of CHRONIC RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. It is characterized by the severe irreversible kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and the reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002). These patients generally require HEMODIALYSIS or KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.

Postoperative hemorrhage from an endovascular AORTIC ANEURYSM repaired with endoluminal placement of stent grafts (BLOOD VESSEL PROSTHESIS IMPLANTATION). It is associated with pressurization, expansion, and eventual rupture of the aneurysm.

Acute kidney failure resulting from destruction of EPITHELIAL CELLS of the KIDNEY TUBULES. It is commonly attributed to exposure to toxic agents or renal ISCHEMIA following severe TRAUMA.
