Short versus conventional hydration for prevention of kidney injury during pre-TAVI computed tomography angiography

BackgroundComputed tomography angiography (CTA) is required in the work-up for transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). However, CTA may cause contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI). We hypothesised that a short (1 h, 3 ml/kg/h sodium bicarbonate) hydration protocol is not inferior to conventional (24 h, 1 ml/kg/h saline) hydration in avoiding a decline in renal...

Trends in patient characteristics and clinical outcome over 8 years of transcatheter aortic valve implantation

AimIn the evolving field of transcatheter aortic valve implantations (TAVI) we aimed to gain insight into trends in patient and procedural characteristics as well as clinical outcome over an 8‑year period in a real-world TAVI population.MethodsWe performed a single-centre retrospective analysis of 1,011 consecutive patients in a prospectively acquired database. We divided the...

Current techniques for assessment of upper extremity vasculature prior to hemodialysis vascular access creation

Vascular access problems lead to increased patient morbidity and mortality and place a large burden on care facilities, manpower and costs. Autogenous arteriovenous fistulas (AVF) are preferred over arteriovenous grafts (AVG) because of a lower incidence of vascular access related complications. An aggressive increase in the utilization of AVF, however, results in an increased...
