We test whether going to a skilled nursing facility (SNF) with a higher star rating leads to better quality outcomes for a patient. We exploit variation over time in the distance from a patient’s residential ZIP code to SNFs with different ratings to estimate the...

Publication date: Available online 25 May 2019Source: Canadian Journal of CardiologyAuthor(s): Rebecca Rodin, Christopher T. ChanAbstractChronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with premature cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Traditional Framingham risk factors contribute partially to the malignant form of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in CKD. Uremic specific risk factors including: chronic inflammation, retention of uremic toxins and abnormal bone mineral metabolism have independently been linked to the pathogenesis of premature vascular aging, atherosclerosis, and CVD. This review will explore the mechanisms by w...

Authors: Shi L, Feng L, Zhang M, Li X, Yang Y, Zhang Y, Ni Q Abstract Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is the leading cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Many trials have shown that Abelmoschus manihot could further improve proteinuria and protect kidney function in patients with DN when added to a renin-angiotensin system (RAS) blocker. A systematic assessment of the efficacy and safety of A. manihot in DN is essential. Eight electronic databases were searched to identify eligible trials published from inception to December 2017. The Cochrane Risk of Bias Tool was used to evaluate the methodological quality of eligi...
