OBJECTIVE: Central venous catheters (CVCs) are preferred when a patent arteriovenous fistula (AVF) cannot be created. CVCs have been shown to be associated with increased inflammation and mortality. In the present study, we aimed to investigate a probable association between the vascular access type and BMI, total body fat, truncal fat, muscle mass, visceral (periaortic) fat, and the malnutrition inflammation atherosclerosis and calcification score (MIAC) in hemodialysis patients.

Figures and Tables from this paper


Periaortic Fat Tissue: A Predictor of Cardiac Valvular Calcification, Malnutrition, Inflammation, and Atherosclerosis Components in Hemodialysis Patients.
T-PAFT showed a positive correlation with inflammation, CVC, and MIAC score in HD patients, and was a significant predictor of CVC.
Peri-aortic fat tissue and malnutrition–inflammation–atherosclerosis/calcification syndrome in end-stage renal disease patients
A relationship between PFT and MIAC syndrome in ESRD patients was found and PFT was found to be significantly increased when the MIAC components increased, and age and uric acid were independent predictors of increased PFT.
Pulmonary hypertension associates with malnutrition and body composition hemodialysis patients
A significant association between malnutrition and PH in HD patients was demonstrated and logistic regression analysis revealed that increased percent body fat, albumin, and total cholesterol associate with a decreased risk of PH.
Association of Vascular Access Type with Inflammatory Marker Levels in Maintenance Hemodialysis Patients
In a cross‐sectional cohort study of 754 HD patients who were part of the NIED study cohort, the associations between inflammatory markers including serum interleukin (IL) 1β, IL‐6, C‐reactive protein (CRP), and tumor necrosis factor‐α (TNF‐α) and type of vascular access were examined.
Obesity as a Predictor of Vascular Access Outcomes: Analysis of the USRDS DMMS Wave II Study
It is concluded that obesity should not preclude placement of AVF as vascular access of choice, except in the very obese where assessment should be individually based.
Vascular access type, inflammatory markers, and mortality in incident hemodialysis patients: the Choices for Healthy Outcomes in Caring for End-Stage Renal Disease (CHOICE) Study.
CVCs, compared with AVFs, are associated with a greater state of inflammation in incident hemodialysis patients, and the association of catheter use and mortality may be mediated by access-induced inflammation.
Impact of dialysis modality on body composition in patients with end-stage renal disease.
Both treatment modalities of ESRD (HD vs CAPD) result in similar changes of body composition, despite continuous glucose loading in CAPD-patients; neither central nor peripheral fat stores are increased in these subjects compared with HD treated patients.
Truncal fat mass as a contributor to inflammation in end-stage renal disease.
Plausible relations exist between inflammatory biomarkers, such as IL-6 and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, and regional fat distribution in ESRD patients and the strong inverse relations between HDL cholesterol and apolipoprotein A and biomarkers of inflammation suggest that the chronic inflammatory response observed in E SRD patients is an important contributor to the atherogenic lipoprotein profile in uremia.
Pre Dialysis care and types of Vascular Access Employed in Incident Hemodialysis Patients: A study from Pakistan
Very high incidence of temporary HD catheter was used in Incident hemodialysis patients and pre dialysis care in terms of placement of AV access prior to initiating HD is better in the hands of nephrologist and patients should be timely referred to nephrology especially when they have Stage 4 chronic kidney disease (CKD).
Vascular access and patient outcomes in hemodialysis: questions answered in recent literature.
U.S. interventional nephrologists should be given the opportunity to learn AVF placement procedures to emulate their European counterparts, and thus improve U.s. dialysis outcomes.
