Pull-through technique combined with percutaneous angioplasty for treating high-grade arteriovenous fistula stenosis.

Pull-through technique combined with percutaneous angioplasty for treating high-grade arteriovenous fistula stenosis. J Vasc Access. 2019 Aug 29;:1129729819870633 Authors: He Q, Yu B, Shi W, Tan J, Zhu L, Liang K Abstract PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of a new pull-through technique through a brachial artery approach combined with angioplasty for the treatment of arteriovenous fistula. METHODS: In this retrospective study, a total of 56 arteriovenous fistula patients with high-grade stenosis induced by arteriovenous fistula, which was divided into pull-through technique through a brachial artery approach (pull-through group, n = 28) and solely through a venous approach (control group, n = 28), were analyzed. Both groups underwent percutaneous transluminal angioplasty treatments simultaneously. RESULTS: The success rate of the pull-through group (89.3%, 25 out of 28) was similar to that of the control group (75.0%, 21 out of 28, p = 0.296). Fistula restenosis occurred with time in both groups but no significant differences in the post-operative fistula patency were found between the pull-through and control groups in follow-ups at 3, 6, and 12 months (71.4% vs 67.9%, 57.1% vs 60.7%, and 20.0% vs 30.0%, respectively, p > 0.05). No significant difference in the post-operative patency rate in patients with diabetes, hypertension, or coronary disease...

Authors: Arya DS, Chowdhury S, Chawla R, Das AK, Ganie MA, Kumar KMP, Nadkar MY, Rajput R Abstract Pharmacotherapy with fixed dose combination (FDC) drugs is becoming popular as evidence-based clinical guidelines recommend using multiple therapeutic agents in complex regimens for many chronic diseases including type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). FDC formulations have unique advantages such as complementary mechanism of action, synergistic effects, better tolerability, elongated product life-cycle management, and cost savings. Polypharmacy is a frequent problem in T2DM patients having hypertension, dyslipidemia, and o...

The objective of this study was to determine the association of Computed tomography quantified visceral (VAT) and subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) with estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) using CKD-EPI formula, diabetes mellitus, body mass index (BMI), proteinuria, lipid profile, and hypertension. Increased adipose tissue is the primary phenotypic characteristic of obesity. The amount and distribution of adipose tissue is associated with many adverse consequences, as hypertension, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease etc. Abdominal CT with semi-automated software can quantify adipose tissue and predict the risk...

Authors: Gupta R, Sharma KK, Soni S, Gupta N, Khedar RS Abstract Background: Hypertension is highly prevalent in India but frequency of resistant hypertension has not been well studied. Methods: We performed a registry-based study at a single center in patients with primary diagnosis of hypertension (n=3073). Details of co-morbidities, medications and blood pressure (BP) control were obtained. Patients with coronary heart disease, cerebrovascular disease and chronic kidney disease were excluded. Resistant hypertension was defined as uncontrolled hypertension (BP ≥140/90) with use of 3 drugs of which one was ...

In this study, correlations between 18F-NaF PET/computed tomography (CT) findings and cardiovascular risk factors were investigated in patients with suspected coronary artery disease. Patients and methods Forty patients with suspected coronary artery disease underwent 18F-NaF PET/CT. The maximum and overall burden of calcifying activity, and the overall burden of calcium deposition in the descending thoracic aorta (DTA) were measured on 18F-NaF PET/CT and they were compared with cardiovascular risk factors, particularly, with those related to metabolic syndrome. Results The maximum and overall burden of calcifying ac...

A sizable body of evidence, both mechanistic and epidemiological, supports the idea that exercise slows age-related cognitive decline. The report here is an example of the type, noting the results of a study in which some of the participants were assigned to an exercise program. The exercising participants exhibited a slower decline in cognitive function, particularly memory, in comparison to the others. This is a representative result: in general, the consensus in the scientific literature is that regular exercise is beneficial to cognitive function over the long term. Researchers theorized that the healthy lifes...

[Daily Maverick] In the shadow of HIV many things are hidden. Do a quick Google search ('in the shadow of HIV') and a torrent of disease and social ills will blast across your browser. You'll find gender-based violence and stigma, sugar-daddies, obesity and hypertension, patriarchy, cancer and diabetes, denial, guilt, and the opioid crisis. Also hiding, deep in the shadows, are adolescent boys and young men.

DiscussionThis review will be the first to report and summarise the risk for and incidence of PPC in adult patients with MetS undergoing surgery across a range of surgical specialities. The results have the potential to inform the development of evidenced-based interventions to improve the management of PPC in the surgical patient with MetS. Findings from this systematic review and meta-analysis will inform a subsequent Delphi study on priorities and responses to PPC in patients with MetS. We will also disseminate our results through publication in scientific peer-reviewed journals, conference presentations and promotion t...
