Research-based medical company Concept Medical Inc (CMI) reported on Thursday the receipt of the US Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Breakthrough Device Designation for MagicTouch AVF
, its Sirolimus drug-coated balloon (DCB) catheter, for the treatment of stenotic lesions of arteriovenous fistulae or arteriovenous graft in hemodialysis treatment of renal failure.
Patients were equally divided between those whose AVF
was in the dominant versus non-dominant arm.
is the best method for vascular access reducing hospitalization and mortality with the additional benefits of longer term patency, improved flow rates and fewer complications than other methods of vascular access.
This study aimed to introduce the innovation of fascial slings as an adjunct contributing in ease of cannulation in superficialised Brachiobasilic AVF
Robbin, M.D., from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and colleagues assessed ultrasound parameters with AVF
clinical maturation in newly created AVF
measured at one day and two and six weeks among 602 participants.
This blind spot existed for many reasons, including the hospital staff's familiarity with the AVF
, which obscured its ability to perceive the military through the public's lens.
Therefore, with this study, we aimed to reveal the relationship of promoter polymorphism in the IL-1[alpha] gene and AVF
thrombosis in HD patients.
These recommendations are based upon available data that suggests that AVF
have superior patency, fewer complications, require fewer reinterventions and ultimately improve patient survival.
The basic indication for angioplasty of AVF
or AVG in a HD patient is when there is stenosis > 50% of lumen's diameter which is accompanied by previous thrombosis, increased venous pressure during HD, worsening laboratory findings such as hyperkalemia and uremia, diminished murmur on auscultation of the vascular access, and finally drop of blood flow in color Doppler of the site .
claim that "numerous prior cases of vertebral AVFs
report induction by chiropractic manipulation" which is the genesis of our communication.
In addition she had been having prolonged bleeding postdialysis from her AVF
. The patient had been adherent to a dialysis treatment schedule of three days a week and complex medication regime which included amlodipine, clonidine, hydralazine, lasix, labetalol, levetiracetam, levothyroxine, simvastatin, topiramate, and renvela.
The increase in patients with diabetes and peripheral vascular disease has meant that there is an increase in the amount of underdeveloped arteriovenous fistulae (AVF
) due to arterial calcification, poorer cardiac output, smaller vessel size and poorer healing properties.
