AbstractPurposeWe investigated the etiology and impact on outcomes of polycystic kidney disease in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm.MethodsEight-hundred patients who underwent open (n = 603) or endovascular aortic repair (n = 197) were divided into three groups: no cyst (n = 204), non-polycystic kidney (n = 503), and polycystic kidney (≥ 5 cysts in the bilateral kidneys,n = 93). The characteristics and outcomes were compared among the groups.ResultsIn the polycystic kidney group, the age was increased and the proportions of patients with...

This study delves into the mechanisms by which a short period of fasting can accelerate wound healing. Fasting triggers many of the same cellular stress responses, such as upregulated autophagy, as occur during the practice of calorie restriction. It isn't exactly the same, however, so it is always worth asking whether any specific biochemistry observed in either case does in fact occur in both situations. In particular, the period of refeeding following fasting appears to have beneficial effects that are distinct from those that occur while food is restricted. Multiple forms of therapeutic fasting have been repor...

Purpose of review Macrophages play an important role in regulating homeostasis, kidney injury, repair, and tissue fibrogenesis. The present review will discuss recent advances that explore the novel subsets and functions of macrophage in the pathogenesis of kidney damage and hypertension. Recent findings Macrophages differentiate into a variety of subsets in microenvironment-dependent manner. Although the M1/M2 nomenclature is still applied in considering the pro-inflammatory versus anti-inflammatory effects of macrophages in kidney injury, novel, and accurate macrophage phenotypes are defined by flow cytometric marke...

Purpose of review The recent years have been marked by the publication of several articles highlighting the pathophysiological role of glomerular parietal epithelial cells (PEC) and refining their phenotypic heterogeneity. Recent findings The present review synthetizes recent findings on (i) the potential regenerative role of PEC in glomerular diseases, and (ii) the mechanisms and signaling of leading to PEC pathogenic involvement in crescentic glomerulonephritis (CGN) and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). Summary The debate is still open regarding the podocyte regenerative properties of PEC in glomerular ...

Purpose of review Despite improvements in acute kidney injury (AKI) detection, therapeutic options to halt the progression of AKI to chronic kidney disease (CKD) remain limited. In this review, we focus on recent discoveries related to the pathophysiology of the AKI to CKD continuum, particularly involving the renal tubular epithelial cells, and also discuss related ongoing clinical trials. While our focus is on injured renal tubular epithelial cells as initiators of the cascade of events resulting in paracrine effects on other cells of the kidney, the summation of maladaptive responses from various kidney cell types ult...

Pulmonary Thormboendarterectomy (PTE) has been shown to reduce tricuspid regurgitation. Tricuspid valve repair or replacement (TVR) in addition to the PTE has been used primarily in patients with more severe tricuspid regurgitation (TR), but the effects have not been evaluated.

Secondary mitral regurgitation (MR), not amenable to percutaneous or surgical repair, is common in advanced heart failure patients considered for LVAD implantation. Single center analyses have suggested variable frequency of persistent MR after LVAD implantation and consequent pulmonary hypertension, worse right heart function and more readmissions. The contemporary impact of newer devices such as the HeartMate 3 (HM3) on amelioration of MR post-LVAD implant remains uncertain. In this analysis of the MOMENTUM 3 pivotal trial and its Continued Access Protocol (CAP) study, we propose to assess the burden of significant resid...

This study aimed to evaluate the changes in aortic stiffness in young patients undergoing thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) after blunt thoracic aortic injury (TBAI) and to examine the associated cardiovascular complications during follow-up. Patients and methods: We included survivors of TBAI who underwent stent graft placement between November 2009 and November 2019 and gave their consent to participate. Patients with relevant cardiovascular risk factors, comorbidities with potential impact on arterial stiffness, and prior aortic surgical or endovascular interventions were excluded. Fourteen TEVAR patients pros...
