This prospective, multi-centre, single-arm, open-label, 13-site study will enroll 129 male and female patients, 18 to 80 years old, who require creation of new brachiocephalic
If not feasible, then a brachiocephalic
arteriovenous fistula followed by a basilic vein transposition should be created in the non-dominant arm.
Normal structures in the prevascular compartment include the thymus, fat, lymph nodes and the left brachiocephalic
Arch of aorta (AOA) is the continuation of ascending aorta, and usually, it gives three branches, namely, from right to left, brachiocephalic
trunk, left common carotid artery (LCCA), and left subclavian artery (LSCA).
Before and after gadopentetate dimeglumine (Magnevist, Schering, Germany) was injected into the right brachiocephalic
vein, coronal oblique T1W-TSE-SPIR were performed with the contrast agent administrated with 0.
One filter is placed in the brachiocephalic
artery and the other is set in the left common carotid artery.
Using the brachiocephalic
fistula as a first approach of choice in older adult patients who are late making a decision on access type or those with short life expectancy should be considered (Lazarides, Georgiadis, Antoniou, & Staramos, 2007).
A left CCA arising from brachiocephalic
trunk is a frequently seen variation.
Quantitative image analysis was performed on axial CT images at five predefined anatomical levels: 1) ascending aorta in proximity of the aortic valve; 2) aortic arch at the origin of brachiocephalic
trunk; 3) thoracic descending aorta at the level of pulmonary trunk; 4) aorta at the level of diaphragm; 5) abdominal aorta at the level of the renal arteries.
Dialyzing with an AVF, either brachiocephalic
or radiocephalic; no central venous catheters, arteriovenous grafts, or femoral AVFs--due to differences in access flows and vessel quality;
Objective: Ultrasound-guided (USG) cannulation of the brachiocephalic
vein (BCV) has been shown to be technically easy.
In the upper extremities, these areas include the subclavian vein at the costoclavicular junction and the left brachiocephalic
vein as it crosses a relatively fixed, pulsatile fulcrum of brachiocephalic
artery and aorta.
