Reassessing the utility of access recirculation and Kt/V for the prediction of arteriovenous fistula failure using online clearance monitoring: the SHUNT STUDY
CONCLUSIONS: BTM-AR and OCM-Kt/V are specific but insufficiently sensitive tools for the prediction of AVF failure. BTM-AR and OCM-Kt/V use at every dialysis session appears to add little to the traditional, infrequent use of these evaluations.PMID:36445562 | DOI:10.1007/s40620-022-01525-4 (Source: Journal of Nephrology)

Comparison of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and surgical revision after intraoperative dilatation with biliary tract probes for arteriovenous fistula stenosis at juxta-anastomosis
CONCLUSION: The post-intervention long-term primary patency rate of surgical revision after intraoperative dilatation with biliary tract probes is higher than that of PTA for the first intervention of patients with juxta-anastomotic stenosis in RCAVFs. The surgical revision method is safe and effective, especially in hospitals that have not yet carried out PTA.PMID:36384031 | DOI:10.1177/17085381221140179 (Source: Vascular)

Outcomes of stent grafts for treatment of central venous disease in hemodialysis patients
CONCLUSIONS: This study confirmed the better long-term patency of SG in comparison with PTA and BMS for the treatment of CVD in hemodialysis patients.PMID:36324210 | DOI:10.1177/11297298221134142 (Source: The Journal of Vascular Access)

Second percutaneous transluminal angioplasty versus surgical reconstruction for hemodialysis access failure within a short-time period
The purpose of this study was to compare patency and non-abandonment rates for second percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) and surgical reconstruction for the treatment of failing vascular access due to restenosis or re-occlusion in a short time after initial PTA.

Short-term outcome of stenting with Enterprise stents for symptomatic intracranial atherosclerotic disease at a single center
CONCLUSION: This retrospective study suggests that percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and stenting with Enterprise stents is an effective treatment for symptomatic intracranial arterial stenosis or occlusion with a high technical success rate. It also indicates that stenting during the early nonacute stage after stroke may not increase the incidence of perioperative complications for symptomatic intracranial atherosclerotic stenosis when following strict inclusion criteria.PMID:36259331 | DOI:10.1177/15910199221133166 (Source: Interventional Neuroradiology)

Long-Term Effectiveness of Cilostazol in Patients with Hemodialysis with Peripheral Artery Disease
CONCLUSION: Continuous treatment of cilostazol in patients with HD with PAD significantly decreases the risk of ED visits, hemorrhagic stroke, and cardiovascular events and improves ED visit-free and cardiovascular event-free rates during long-term follow-up.PMID:36216573 | DOI:10.5551/jat.63404 (Source: Journal of Atherosclerosis and Thrombosis)

Improvement of the splanchnic blood flow and hepatic vein oxygenation following revascularisation in patients with chronic mesenteric ischaemia
CONCLUSIONS: Revascularisation increased the SBF and hepatic vein oxygen saturation significantly concurrent with symptom relief and according with the angiographic successful result in the vast majority of patients. A satisfying angiographic result post vascular intervention does not rule out CMI. This article is protected by copyright.

Feasibility of Deep Learning-Based Analysis of Auscultation for Screening Significant Stenosis of Native Arteriovenous Fistula for Hemodialysis Requiring Angioplasty
CONCLUSION: Mel spectrogram-based DCNN models, particularly ResNet50, successfully predicted the presence of significant AVF stenosis requiring PTA in this feasibility study and may potentially be used in AVF surveillance.PMID:36174999 | DOI:10.3348/kjr.2022.0364 (Source: Korean J Radiol)
