Vascular Complications of Transradial Access for Cardiac Catheterization

For cardiac catheterization, transradial access has been increasingly popular. It is vital for operators to recognize potential vascular issues associated with radial artery access. This paper aims to raise the possibility of transradial access vascular problems. Intra-arterial verapamil and/or nitroglycerine are used to treat Radial artery spasms. Hand ischemia is a rare condition not related to abnormal findings of the Allen or Barbeau test, and it can be treated with intra-arterial verapamil, IV heparin, and IV diltiazem.

The Effect of Video-Assisted Clean Intermittent Catheterization Training on Patients’ Practical Skills and Self-Confidence

Methods The study's population included patients who had just started doing CIC in a city hospital in Istanbul's urology polyclinic. Patients in the experimental group were given CIC training with a training video that was downloaded to the patient's, a family member, or caregiver's smartphone. In the experimental group, which included patients who underwent video-assisted education, the CIC Skill Checklist and the Self-Confidence Scale in Clean Intermittent Self-Catheterization, were both statistically significant higher than in the control group, and the patients in the experimental group had fewer problems such as urinary tract infections, urgency, urinary incontinence, hematuria, and urethral stricture were statistically significant differences. Conclusions Lecton et. J. C. 's service-based CIC instruction provided a positive impact on patients' practical skills and self-confidence, as well as self-confidence.

A Multicenter, Open-Label, Observational Study Evaluating the Quality of Life After Using a Hydrophilic-Coated Catheter (SpeediCath) With Self-Intermittent Catheterization

Purpose We investigated the impact on patient quality of life after the use of a hydrophilic-coated catheter in adults needing intermittent catheterization. Methods This was a multicenter, open-label, observational study using the Patient Perception of Intermittent Catheterization questionnaire and the Intermittent Self-Catheterization questionnaire and safety at 12 and 24 weeks in adult patients who had already used other types of catheters prior to switching to SpeediCath or in patients undergoing self-IC for the first time for any reason. The satisfaction rate after using SpeediCath was 84. 1%, and 80% of patients said they could safely administer IC within 24 weeks. Before it was introduced into the urethra, men found less interference in their daily life by doing IC than women, and women found it easier to handle the catheter.

Do COVID-19 pandemic-related behavior changes affect perioperative respiratory adverse events in children undergoing cardiac interventional catheterization?

Abstract Background The novel coronavirus disease mysteriously died out in China in December 2019. Pandemic-related behavioral changes can cause perioperative respiratory adverse events in children with congenital heart disease. Here's a look at the incidence of perioperative respiratory adverse events in CHD patients with and without upper respiratory disease during cardiac catheterization before and during the COVID-19 pandemic. Between January 2019 and March 2021, a total of 359 children with CHD with and without recent URI were included. Compared to and during the COVID-19 pandemic, the overall incidence of PRAEs in non-URI and URI children undergoing elective cardiac catheterization was reduced. During the pandemic period but not before, post-operative agitation in children without URI was less common in children without URIs. Conclusions COVID-19 pandemic-related behavioral changes were associated with a decrease in PRAEs in non-URI and URI children undergoing elective cardiac catheterization.

Association of periprocedural phentolamine infusion with favorable outcome in patients with chronic kidney disease and chronic coronary syndrome undergoing coronary catheterization: a prospective randomized controlled pilot study

Abstract Background: Chronic kidney disease, particularly chronic coronary syndrome patients undergoing coronary catheterization, is a significant risk factor for contrast-induced acute kidney injury in chronic coronary syndrome patients undergoing coronary catheterization. stenting is the problem We wanted to investigate the efficacy of phentolamine in preventing CI-AKI in CKD and CCS patients undergoing percutaneous coronary catheterization for diagnostic angiography. In group 2 versus group 1, the peak change in serum creatinine and the percentage change relative to baseline serum creatinine was significantly higher in group 2 than group 1, and the incidence of major adverse cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events within 72 hours post-testation was significantly higher in group 2 compared to group 1; respectively.

Long‐term prognostic value of cardiac catheterization and acute vasodilator testing with inhaled iloprost in pediatric idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension

In children with idiopathic pulmonary hypertension, the first attempt to determine the long-term prognostic value of cardiac catheterization and acute vasodilator testing with inhaled iloprost. Multiple hemodynamic variables from cardiac catheterization and AVT with inhaled iloprost have a major prognostic factor in long-term survival in children with IPAH, of which respiratory vasoactivity determined by the Barst criteria and SvO2 are independent prognostic variables.

A Risk Prediction Model of Serious Adverse Events After Cardiac Catheterization for Chinese Adults Patients with Moderate and Severe Congenital Heart Disease

Background: In China, there are nearly 2 million adult patients with congenital heart disease, and the number of moderate and severe patients is on the rise. The aim of this research was to identify risk factors for SAE related to cardiac catheterization and cardiac catheterization, as well as a risk scoring system for predicting SAE. Methods: A total of 690 patients with moderate and severe adult heart disease who underwent cardiac catheterization at Wuhan Medical Heart Hospital Affiliated to Wuhan University of Science and Technology from January 2018 to January 2022 were retrospectively collected and divided into a modeling group and a verification group, which were then divided into a modeling group and a verification group. Conclusions: The risk prediction and assessment of SAE risk in patients with moderate to severe ACHD are both highly discriminative and calibration, which may serve as a reference for clinical prediction and assessment of SAE risk after cardiac catheterization in patients with moderate and severe ACHD.

Our Anesthesia Experience in Catheterization and Angiography Procedures in the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory in Pediatric Patients with Congenital Heart Disease: Single Center 360 Cases

Objective: Both cardiac catheterization and angiography are two of the procedures used in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with congenital heart disease. These patients' anesthetic problems are unique, and anesthesia approaches in them are specific. Method: The aim of this research was to assess our anesthesia experience and complications in catheterization procedures performed in the pediatric angiography laboratory between August 1st, 2020, and December 31st, 2021. Hypotension was observed in 17 patients, desaturation in ten patients, and rhythm disturbances in 7 patients during anesthesia therapy. Conclusion: Contraception: During the catheterization procedure in pediatric cases of congenital heart disease, no patient was lost due to the procedure.

A prospective observational study on impact of epinephrine administration route on acute myocardial infarction patients with cardiac arrest in the catheterization laboratory (iCPR study)

Abstract Background Epinephrine is commonly used in cardiac arrest; however, it is unknown if the route of administration has influenced outcomes in acute myocardial infarction patients with cardiac arrest. Using Percutaneous coronary intervention, a prospective two-center pilot cohort study of acute myocardial infarction patients who died from cardiac arrest in the cardiac catheterization lab during percutaneous coronary intervention was conducted. We compared the results of patients who received epinephrine through peripheral IV, central IV, or IC. Compared to central IV and IC administration, the Peripheral IV epinephrine administration route was correlated with lower chances of triggering spontaneous circulation revival. With the IC route, the chances of stent thrombosis were even higher. When compared to peripheral IV, central IV and IC routes were more effective for central IV and IC routes. Epinephrine administration via central IV and IC routes was associated with a higher risk of ROSC and improved neurologic outcomes than peripheral IV administration.
