INTRODUCTION With increasing numbers of patients diagnosed with ESRD, arteriovenous fistula (AVF) maturation has become a major factor in improving both dialysis related outcomes and quality of life of those patients. Compared to other types of access it has been established that a functional AVF access is the least likely to be associated with thrombosis,(More)
aphasia, and multimodal neglect (NIHSS 14). Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated acute middle cerebral artery (MCA) territory ischemia (DWI-ASPECTS 7). Intravenous Thrombolysis (IVT) was not applied since the patient was under warfarin. Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA) (Fig. 1) revealed a left-sided proximal ICA occlusion with severe calcified(More)
INTRODUCTION A brachiobasilic arteriovenous fistula (BB-AVF) can provide access for haemodialysis in patients who are not eligible for a more superficial fistula. However, it is unclear whether one- or two-stage BB-AVF is the best option for patients. AIM To systematically assess the difference between both procedures in terms of access maturation,(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the importance of mechanical thrombectomy (MT) in the treatment of ischemic stroke. MATERIAL AND METHODS Analysis and comparison of randomized controlled trials (RCT) of MT versus i.v. thrombolysis (IVT) considering pathophysiological and logistic aspects. RESULTS The use of MT is more effective than IVT for internal carotid(More)
