CONCLUSION: Patients are at a high risk of EMS-ED after dialysis initiation. Frailty severity (at the time of dialysis initiation) is a strong predictor of first and recurrent EMS-ED and this may be important to guide informed decision making and resource planning for dialysis patients who require EMS.

Publication date: Available online 9 November 2019Source: Journal of Molecular BiologyAuthor(s): Tyler M. Marcinko, Chungwen Liang, Sergey Savinov, Jianhen Chen, Richard W. VachetAbstractIn dialysis patients, the protein β2-microglobulin (β2m) forms amyloid fibrils in a condition known as dialysis-related amyloidosis. To understand the early stages of the amyloid assembly process, we have used native electrospray ionization (ESI) together with ion mobility mass spectrometry (IM-MS) to study soluble preamyloid oligomers. ESI-IM-MS reveals the presence of multiple conformers for the dimer, tetramer, and hexamer tha...

Authors: Jha VK, Jairam A, Mahapatra D Abstract Oral anticoagulants are commonly prescribed in patients with kidney diseases having atrial fibrillation and thromboembolic risk. It is very important to understand their clinical pharmacology and changes that may occur as GFR declines. Risks and benefits of newer oral anticoagulants are different in patients with CKD and patients with ESRD. Patients with GFR

A 34 year-old female with Stage V chronic kidney disease secondary to a history of sickle cell anemia and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis and on peritoneal dialysis presented to our hospital for imaging as part of routine evaluation for renal transplant. Upon receiving an MRI of the abdomen to evaluate liver architecture and kidney anatomy, a 6.6 cm left perinephric mass was incidentally found inferomedial to the left kidney and extending caudally (Figure 1). The renal parenchyma and ureter were uninvolved.

Authors: Fabrizi F, Cerutti R, Silva M Abstract Introduction: The introduction of direct-acting antiviral therapy has generated tremendous interest in transplanting organs from HCV-infected donors, an option which has the potential to lower waiting times for solid organ transplantation (including kidneys). Safe, effective and pangenotypic direct-acting antiviral agents are currently available.Areas covered: We have identified studies from PubMed, EMBASE, and the Cochrane database to review risks and benefits on solid organ transplantation from HCV exposed donors in uninfected recipients.Expert opinion: The transmis...
