Acute kidney injury post cardiac catheterization: Does vascular access route matter?

CONCLUSION: Transradial access offers several advantages to a patient at high risk of acute kidney injury undergoing cardiac catheterization. Further large studies are needed to establish this trend in the years ahead. PMID: 30421683 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Egbe, Keerthana Banala, Rahul Vojjini, Maria Najam, Fouad Khalil, Karim Osman, Mohamed Badawy, Jason H. Anderson, Nathaniel W. TaggartAbstractBackgroundElevated pulmonary artery wedge pressure (PAWP) is the hallmark of left heart failure, and is responsible for heart failure symptoms and mortality. Although, PAWP typically correlates with right atrial pressure (RAP), it is primarily dependent on left heart myocardial properties and volume status. Since right heart disease can occur in the absence of left heart d...

We report a case of a 75-year-old woman with a complaint of intermittent angina pectoris who underwent cardiac catheterization. Intra-interventionally, coronary artery dissection occurred and was stabilized by the placement of two stents. After this procedure, the patient suffered from chest pain. At 5.5  h after the procedure ended, the woman suddenly and unexpectedly died. At forensic autopsy, a hemopericardium with cardiac tamponade was found to have been caused by the rupture of a myocardial infarction that was several days old and had remained clinically unrecognized. This case report illustra tes the importance ...

The objective of this quality improvement research was to evaluate both novice (50) clinicians' confidence across 100 ultrasound-guided central venous catheter insertion courses were performed at a mixture of teaching and non-teaching hospitals across 26 states within the United States between April 2015 and April 2016. A total of 1238 attendees completed a pre- and post-survey after attending a mixed method clinical simulation course. Attendees completed a 4-h online didactic education module followed by 4 h of hands-on clinical simulation stations (compliance/sterile technique, needling techniques, vascular ultras...

Shockwave Medical is moving to get its Intravascular Lithotripsy (IVL) technology approved in Japan. The Santa Clara-based company said it has initiated the DISRUPT CAD IV study of IVL in heavily calcified coronary arteries. DISRUPT CAD IV is expected to enroll up to 64 patients at eight sites in Japan. Shockwave Medical pointed out the first CAD IV patient was enrolled earlier this week by the principal investigator of the study, Shigeru Saito, MD, Director of Cardiology and Catheterization Laboratories and Vice President, Shonan Kamakura General Hospital. The firm’s device is designed to fracture proble...

This study sought to compare the outcomes and costs of elective and emergent invasive cardiac procedures for interstage patients. Retrospective review of discharge data from The Vizient Clinical Data Base/Resource Manager ™, a national health care analytics platform. The database was queried for admissions from 10/2014 to 12/2017 for children 1–6 months old with ICD-9 or ICD-10 codes for SV CHD who underwent invasive cardiac procedures. Demographics, length of stay (LOS), complication rate, in-hospital mortality and direct costs were compared between elective and emergent admissions usingt test or χ2, ...
