Conclusion: Videoscopic surgery for AVF dramatically reduced the incidence of postoperative complications without interrupting patency; moreover, such procedures may increase the use of native vessels for vascular access. In addition, dissection using a videoscope compared to blind dissection using only a skip incision dramatically increased the success rate of displacement by reducing damage to the dissected vessels.

AbstractThirst has been defined as “the sensation that leads animal’s and human’s actions toward the goal of finding and drinking water” or as “any drive that can motivate water intake, regardless of cause”. Thirst, together with xerostomia, is the main cause of poor adherence to fluid restriction and of excessive intake of fluids in patients on chronic hemodialysis, and consequently of high interdialytic weight gain. Interdialytic weight gain (IDWG) should be lower than 4.0–4.5% of dry weight. Unfortunately, many patients have an IDWG greater than this value and some have IDWG of ...

MONDAY, Feb. 24, 2020 -- Among hemodialysis patients with atrial fibrillation, racial/ethnic disparities in all-cause stroke are partially mediated by lower anticoagulant use, according to a study published online Feb. 20 in the Journal of the...

Authors: Dong ZX, Tian M, Li H, Wu Y, Du XG, Dong JW, Xiao HH, Dong LP, Song XH Abstract Objective: There is no consensus on the role of abnormal uric acid (UA) levels in the prognosis of patients undergoing hemodialysis. We therefore aimed to investigate the effects of changes in UA concentration on the risk of all-cause death and cardiac death in such patients. Method: In this retrospective cohort study, patients admitted to two hemodialysis centers performing maintenance hemodialysis (MHD) in Wuhan First Hospital and Fourth Hospital Hemodialysis Center from January 1, 2007, to October 31, 2017, were included...

Authors: Kim MS, Kim GH, Lee CH, Park JS, Lee JY, Tae K Abstract Objectives: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of subtotal parathyroidectomy for patients with renal hyperparathyroidism. Methods: We studied 25 patients with renal hyperparathyroidism who underwent subtotal parathyroidectomy from October 2002 to October 2017. We analyzed serum intact parathyroid hormone (iPTH), calcium, and inorganic phosphorus levels before and at multiple time points following surgery, and evaluated the surgical outcomes and complications. Results: Of the 25 patients, 13 (52%) were male and 12 (48%) wer...

Publication date: Available online 21 February 2020Source: Urology Case ReportsAuthor(s): Tomotaka Yamazaki, Hiroyuki Shirai, Jun Yashima, Tamotsu TojimbaraAbstractThe patient was a 41-year-old male who had been maintained on extended-hours hemodialysis for 297 months. Despite of long-term hemodialysis vintage, he had no vascular calcification and ectopic calcification. His kidney graft did not experience rejection or other complications 18 months after the cadaveric kidney transplant. Previous reports indicated that graft survival of extended-hours hemodialysis patients did not differ from conventional hemodialysis. Howev...

CONCLUSION: In patients with ESRD undergoing dialysis, PD had lowered risks of new onset of AF compared to HD. Subsequently, these AF patients in PD group had comparable incidence of ischemic stroke but decreased incidence of hemorrhagic stroke compared to AF patients in HD group. PD could be the most suitable modality in patients at risk for the onset of AF. PMID: 32086785 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Preoperative ultrasound vessel mapping is a crucial step in operative planning for permanent hemodialysis access creation. Whereas the majority of the focus remains on vein caliber, anatomic arterial variants are often overlooked. Despite being a relatively common variation, little is known about the impact of a high brachial bifurcation on hemodialysis access outcomes. Our goal was to examine the relationship between a high brachial bifurcation and arteriovenous fistula (AVF) maturation and patency in patients undergoing upper arm hemodialysis access placement.
