Proteinuria caused by glomerular hypertension during adolescence associated with extremely premature birth: a report of two cases

Conclusions Proteinuria in both patients was caused by glomerular hypertension with hyperfiltration. Extremely preterm birth itself may be a risk factor for future CKD. Long-term follow-up of patients born prematurely and at low birth weight, including urinalysis and blood pressure measurements, is necessary to diagnose and treat late renal complications.

(European Society of Cardiology) Drug therapy for patients with stable heart failure can be simplified by stopping diuretics, according to late breaking results from the ReBIC-1 trial presented today at Heart Failure 2019, a scientific congress of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). 'Heart failure patients have many pills to take for their heart failure and for comorbidities such as diabetes and hypertension,' said principal investigator Dr Luis E. Rohde.

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...

AbstractObjectiveOur goal was to determine if whole blood viscosity (WBV) can be used to predict the risk of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) in patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc).MethodsPatients with SSc were analyzed. Out of 107 patients, 26 patients, found to have confirmed diagnosis of PAH, were classified as those with (n = 26, PAH group) and without PAH (n = 81, non-PAH group). We calculated estimated WBV at both high (HSR) and low shear rates (LSR) from hematocrit and total serum protein levels.ResultsTotal protein levels were significantly higher and the anti-centromere antibody (AC...

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...

This report introduces a new sensor based on glassy carbon electrode (GCE) modified with a multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and reduced graphene oxide (rGO) hybrid nanocomposite for electrochemical determination of triamterene (TRM) and hydrochlorothiazide (HCT) simultaneously. Impedance spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) were used for electrode modification process. The differential pulse stripping voltammetric (DPSV) responses of HCT and TRM were in linear with their concentrations, ranging from 0.5 to120 μM and 1.5 to 120 μM respectively with correlation coefficients>0.99. The synergist...

This study aimed to explore the effect of winter temperatures on the risk factors, etiology, coagulation, and degree of neurological impairment in patients with ischemic stroke using temperature and rainfall data from the Guangzhou Meteorological Bureau during the winter months of December, January, and February. MATERIAL AND METHODS We divided 112 patients with ischemic stroke into low-temperature and non-low-temperature groups. The low-temperature group experienced an average daily winter temperature of 13°C on admission. Neurological deficits were scored and monitored using the National Institutes of Health Stroke S...

Authors: Harada K, Yasuda M, Hasegawa K, Yamazaki Y, Sasano H, Otsuka F Abstract Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare malignancy arising from adrenocortical parenchymal cells. Myxoid ACC is one of the newly identified, rare, but important histological variants of ACC, characterized by the presence of abundant extracellular Alcian Blue-positive myxoid material. Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) is an autosomal dominant cancer predisposition syndrome, and the incidence of ACC in MEN1 patients has been reported to be between 1.4% and 6%. Here, we report the case of a 68-year-old Japanese woman harboring t...
