    Background: Central venous catheters are frequently used as access for hemodialysis (HD) in children. One of the known complications is central venous stenosis. Although this complication is not rare, it is often asymptomatic and therefore unacknowledged. Superior vena cava (SVC) stenosis is...

    Idiopathic intracranial hypertension is consistently associated with venous outflow disturbances. Sinus venous stenosis are found at magnetic resonance venography in the large majority of IIH patients and may have various conformations, ranging from functional smooth narrowings of sinus segments...

    Introduction: Central vein stenosis is not a rare problem in patients on dialysis. Placement of a central vein catheter for dialysis access substantially increases the risk of central vein stenosis. However, even in patients without a previous history of central vein catheter placement, a...

    Venous pressures (VP) measured by the dialysis machine are widely used for access surveillance and have significantly improved outcomes. VP reflect the resistance in the venous outflow tract which will rise in the presence of stenosis. Low graft flow caused by high graft resistance predicts...

    Translumbar catheters offer an alternative life-saving option in patients without conventional dialysis access, though their use and complication rates are poorly understood. We report the first case in the medical literature of a translumbar catheter inducing a central venous stenosis. This...

It is stated that central venous obstruction often results from bronchopulmonary neoplasm, mediastinal disease or venous thrombosis from indwelling dialysis catheters, pace makers or...

  • Translumbar central venous catheters for long-term haemodialysis. Power, Albert; Singh, Seema; Ashby, Damien; Hamady, Mohamed; Moser, Steve; Gedroyc, Wady; Taube, David; Duncan, Neill; Cairns, Thomas // Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation;May2010, Vol. 25 Issue 5, p1588 

    Background. Vascular access for haemodialysis is achieved by tunnelled central venous catheter (CVC) in at least 23% of prevalent patients in the UK, Canada and the USA. Use of CVCs is associated with an increased incidence of venous stenosis that can progressively limit future vascular access...

    A brachiocephalic arteriovenous fistula was complicated by a central venous stenosis, which could not be relieved. A cephalojugular bypass was performed using an interpositoned graft, which later developed tight stenoses at both ends of the graft. This was successfully treated with endovascular...
