Patient selection, education, and cannulation of percutaneous arteriovenous fistulae: An ASDIN White Paper.

Patient selection, education, and cannulation of percutaneous arteriovenous fistulae: An ASDIN White Paper. J Vasc Access. 2019 Nov 29;:1129729819889793 Authors: Wasse H, Alvarez AC, Brouwer-Maier D, Hull JE, Balamuthusamy S, Litchfield TF, Cooper RI, Rajan DK, Niyyar VD, Agarwal AK, Abreo K, Lok CE, Jennings WC Abstract End-stage kidney disease patients who are candidates for surgical arteriovenous fistula creation commonly experience obstacles to a functional surgical arteriovenous fistula, including protracted wait time for creation, poor maturation, and surgical arteriovenous fistula dysfunction that can result in significant patient morbidity. The recent approval of two endovascular devices designed to create a percutaneous arteriovenous fistula enables arteriovenous fistula creation to be placed in the hands of interventionalists, thereby increasing the number of arteriovenous fistula providers, reducing wait times, and allowing the patient to avoid surgery. Moreover, current studies demonstrate that patients with percutaneous arteriovenous fistula experience improved time to arteriovenous fistula maturation. Yet, in order to realize the potential advantages of percutaneous arteriovenous fistula creation within our hemodialysis patient population, it is critical to select appropriate patients, ensure adequate patient and dialysis unit education, and provide sufficient instruction in percutaneous arteriovenous fistula cannulation and monitoring. In t...

Although our Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study reported a relatively slow international decrease of hepatitis C virus (HCV) prevalence and incidence in hemodialysis (HD) units from 1996 to 20121 (before the direct-acting antiviral era), Huang et  al. now report their direct-acting antiviral–based elimination of HCV from a single HD unit in Taiwan.2 Such eradication of HCV will reduce the clinical burden associated with HCV infection. In addition, HCV eradication should prevent HCV nosocomial transmission.

Majernikova Effective vascular access (VA) is an essential condition for providing hemodialysis, affecting patients’ health outcomes. We aim to explore how health literacy (HL) as a non-clinical factor is associated with the decision-making process regarding VA type selection. Using data from 20 dialysis centers across Slovakia (n = 542, mean age = 63.6, males = 60.7%), the association of HL with type of VA (arteriovenous fistula (AVF) vs. central venous catheter (CVC)) was analyzed using a logistic regression model adjusted for sociodemographic characteristics and comorbidity. Sociodemographic data and da...

CONCLUSION: The hemodiafiltration with endogenous infusion system is a new dialysis technique that combines diffusion, convection, and adsorption processes. It allows for extensive solute removal, including protein-bound uremic toxins and some pro-inflammatory cytokines, but does not cause nutrient loss and inflammatory response during the treatment. Although the effect after a single hemodiafiltration with endogenous infusion session is limited, it may be improved by repeated and long-term treatment.

Abstract RATIONALE: End-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients have high annual mortality mainly due to cardiovascular causes. The acute effects of obstructive and central sleep apnea on cardiac function in ESRD patients have not been determined. We therefore tested, in patients with ESRD, the hypotheses that (1) sleep apnea induces deterioration in cardiac function overnight and (2) attenuation of sleep apnea severity by ultrafiltration (UF) attenuates this deterioration. METHODS: At baseline, ESRD patients, on conventional hemodialysis, with left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF)>45% had polysomnography ...

Authors: Wang Z, Gong Y, Fan F, Yang F, Qiu L, Hong T, Huo Y Abstract Objectives: To evaluate the optimal revascularization strategy for patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and end stage renal disease (ESRD) in the drug-eluting stent (DES) era.Methods: One hundred and twelve patients with ESRD treated with coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) were enrolled from 2007 to 2017. All patients were dialysis-dependent, of which 26 received CABG and 86 underwent PCI. The primary endpoint was all-cause mortality. Secondary endpoints were major adverse cardiovascular even...

We report our care of a 48-year-old woman suffering from right heart failure and massive fluid overload due to severe pulmonary hypertension secondary to a combination of left-heart disease and status after recurrent pulmonary embolisms. Alterations in Doppler-derived intrarenal venous flow patterns and a novel renal venous stasis index were used to evaluate improvement in renal venous congestion during recompensation. Due to refractory congestion despite optimal medical treatment and continuous veno-venous hemodialysis, a peritoneal dialysis catheter was placed to relieve the massive ascites. The paracentesis of ascites l...

AbstractAcute kidney injury (AKI) is common in critically ill children and affects nearly 30 –40% of patients admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit (ICU). Even with technological advances in critical care and dialysis, there is a high mortality rate of 66.8% to 90% in ICU patients. Renal replacement therapy (RRT) is often performed to treat patients with AKI. However, for optimal RRT treatment, it is crucial to consider the indications, modes of access, and prescription of each RRT method. Therefore, this review aims to discuss the various modalities of RRT in pediatric patients, which include peritoneal dial...
