Dialysis Access Management

Craig Walker, MD, Clinical Editor

This July issue of Vascular Disease Management has interesting articles, each worthy of editorial comment. I have chosen to comment on Dr. Bak’s article on “Endovascular Therapies for Hemodialysis Access.” The incidence of hemodialysis is increasing worldwide, despite improvement in hypertensive therapy, as people are living longer, and there is an epidemic of diabetes. continue reading

Endovascular Therapies for Hemodialysis Access: Case Presentations of Salvage, Surgical Maturation, and Maintenance

Yury Bak, DO; John H. Cooper, DO; Kane L. Chang, MD, From the Deborah Heart and Lung Center, Browns Mills, New Jersey.

ABSTRACT:Arteriovenous (AV) access is a field in vascular interventional surgery that has undergone much evolution. Today many AV access sites are carefully monitored and facilitated, maintained, and salvaged through endovascular techniques. This enables the physician and patient to get significantly more use out of each access site created. This article presents the development of the endovascular field of access surgery. continue reading

Treatment of Mycotic Superior Mesenteric Artery Pseudoaneurysms With Flow-Diverting Stents in One Patient

Matthew R. Bordegaray, MD; Jason T. Salsamendi, MD; Govindarajan Narayanan, MD,
From Jackson Memorial Hospital, University of Miami/Miller School of Medicine

ABSTRACT: Superior mesenteric artery aneurysms are the third most common visceral artery aneurysms. They have traditionally been reported as mycotic in origin. Superior mesenteric artery aneurysms have a rupture risk and high resultant mortality rate. Surgery remains the mainstay for treating mycotic pseudoaneurysm and involves resection and vascular reconstruction. Endovascular options include coiling, glue embolization, and stent placement. continue reading
