Remove or not, that is the question: A case report on carotid artery cannulation during indwelling venous hemodialysis catheter

Abstract A 58‐year‐old woman visited the emergency department for acute occlusion of arteriovenous fistula. One session of hemodialysis was scheduled via temporary venous hemodialysis catheter before thrombectomy. Unfortunately, neck arterial cannulation was discovered after complete placement of catheter. The catheter was removed immediately but bleeding could not be stopped. Pseudoaneurysm over the right carotid artery was proved by angiography and repaired by graft stent. Arterial cannulation during venous hemodialysis catheter insertion is a rare but serious complication and there is no standard response recommended. Immediate removal of the misplaced hemodialysis catheter might not be the best choice. We suggest to leave the misplaced catheter in artery until further intervention in consideration of complications and repair access. Every hemodialysis center should standardize responses to arterial cannulation during venous hemodialysis catheter indwelling, especially carotid puncture happens, according to the medical facility.

This study examined the impact of a surgical prescription of epoetin (EPO) in contemporary total hip arthroplasty (THA).MethodsWe conducted a comparative study in a series of 1402 primary THAs performed in patients all having a pre-operative haemoglobin (Hb) level documented four to eight   weeks before THA surgery. In group A (647 hips), one subcutaneous injection of 40,000 IU EPO once a week for four weeks was prescribed at the discretion of anaesthetist during the pre-operative visit in patients with pre-operative Hb between 10 and 13 g/dl. In group S comprising the remaining 755 hips, an amended EPO...

Conclusions: An early removal LAMS protocol for PFC is highly efficacious and prevents delayed bleeding. Based on analysis of published cases, half of LAMS related bleeding occurs within the first week suggesting procedural factors rather than stent dwell time impact risk of bleeding.

Authors: Kakushima N, Yoshida M, Yabuuchi Y, Kawata N, Takizawa K, Kishida Y, Ito S, Imai K, Hotta K, Ishiwatari H, Matsubayashi H, Ono H Abstract Prediction of histology by endoscopic examination is important in the clinical management of non-ampullary duodenal epithelial tumors (NADETs), including adenoma and adenocarcinoma. The use of a simple scoring system based on the findings of white-light endoscopy or magnified endoscopy with narrow-band imaging is useful to differentiate between Vienna category 3 (C3) and C4/5 lesions. Less invasive endoscopic resection procedures, such as cold snare polypectomy, are quic...

We aimed to compare the efficacy of the most frequently used nonsurgical strategies, either alone or in combination, applied in an ambulatory setting. METHODS: Patients who received nonsurgical treatment for HD by proctology appointment at the Gastroenterology Department of Braga Hospital were evaluated. Isolated rubber band ligation (RBL) and a combination of RBL with a micronized purified flavonoid fraction (MPFF) were the 2 most frequent...
