CLINICAL EXPERIENCE WITH THE EXPANDED POLYTETRAFLUOROETHYLENE VASCULAR PROSTHESIS
- A SYNTHETIC VASCULAR CONDUIT (EXPANDED PTFE) FOR HEMODIALYSIS ACCESS-A PRELIMINARY REPORT. Pasternak, B. M. // Vascular Surgery;Mar/Apr1977, Vol. 11 Issue 2, p99
The short term follow up of the thirteen PTFE synthetic grafts placed in eleven patients for chronic hemodialysis is reported. PTFE graft appears to be a satisfactory alternative to a bovine graft for use as a subcutaneous arteriovenous conduit for hemodialysis. Its resistance to local infection...

Evaluates the long-term safety of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) implants used in external valvuloplasty for treatment of the long saphenous and common and superficial femoral veins. Infections, thromboses, foreign-body reactions associated with the ePTFE implants or other...
- The Redo-Surgery of Expanded Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) Arteriovenous Fistulas for Hemodialysis. Rendl, Karl-Hans; Prenner, Konrad V. // Vascular Surgery;Sep/Oct1984, Vol. 18 Issue 5, p261
The Brescia-Cimino fistula, which is considered the best modality of vascular access for chronic hemodialysis available up to now, is not always feasible unfortunately principally for anatomical reasons. A second-choice technique must therefore be selected in 3% to 25%. We have applied the...
- Filling the Folds. Guttman, Cheryl // Dermatology Times;May2003 Supplement 2, Vol. 24 Issue 5, pS13
Focuses on the polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) implants that offer option to patients seeking permanent, replaceable soft-tissue augmentation in the U.S. Role of ePTFE implants; Usage of intradermal injection for patient's satisfaction; Availability of UltraSoft.
- Efficacy of local dipyridamole therapy in a porcine model of arteriovenous graft stenosis. Kuji, T.; Masaki, T.; Goteti, K.; Li, L.; Zhuplatov, S.; Terry, C. M.; Zhu, W.; Leypoldt, J. K.; Rathi, R.; Blumenthal, D. K.; Kern, S. E.; Cheung, A. K. // Kidney International;Jun2006, Vol. 69 Issue 12, p2179
Perivascular delivery of antiproliferative drugs has been proposed as an approach to prevent neointimal hyperplasia associated with hemodialysis polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) grafts. We examined this approach to deliver dipyridamole in a porcine graft model. PTFE grafts were implanted between...
- Enhance the face with implants as well as injectables. Hilton, Lisette // Ophthalmology Times;10/1/2002, Vol. 27 Issue 19, p38
Discusses options for improving facial subunits. Advantages and drawbacks of Teflon implants; Features of McGahn Medical's SoftForm facial implants; Expanded polytetrafluroethylene (ePTFE) with injectables.
- Higher Clearance on NHD Is Related to Dialysis Duration. // Kidney;Jan/Feb99, Vol. 8 Issue 1, p24
Presents the findings of a study focused on nocturnal hemodialysis (NHD), a form of renal replacement, and describes related experience accumulated over three years. Conclusion that NHD was a form of dialysis patients .
- Oral Base Replacement in Patients on Hemodialysis. Van Stone, John C. // Annals of Internal Medicine;Aug84, Vol. 101 Issue 2, p199
Presents information on a study that was designed to evaluate the potential benefits and problems of oral base administration to patients on chronic hemodialysis. Research methods; Results and discussion on the study.
- sodium modeling. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary (2009);2009, Issue 21, p2151
A definition of the term "sodium modeling," which refers to the titration of sodium concentrations during hemodialysis, is presented.
