GeorasAbstractAspergillus molds are ubiquitous environmental molds that can cause devastating invasive infections in immunocompromised patients. These infections often go unrecognized in critically ill patients. This case describes a 68 year-old female resident of a long-term nursing facility with history of dementia, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease with cirrhosis, chronic kidney disease stage III and insulin-dependent type 2 diabetes who presented with vomiting, diarrhea and...

CT angiography offers excellent anatomic detail necessary for vascular procedural planning including endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR). However, patients with renal insufficiency are at risk for acute renal failure due to iodinated contrast administration. Catheter-directed CT angiography is a technique in which dilute iodinated contrast is injected into an intra-aortic pigtail catheter during the CT scan. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of this technique.

This study aimed to investigate whether Ononis spinosa L. has a litholytic effect on kidney stones with different chemical patterns.Materials and MethodsUrinary stones extracted from seven patients over 18 years of age during surgery were used as the study material. Each urinary stone was divided into two parts, one of which was left in a solution prepared with O. spinosa L. and the other constituted the control sample. The amount of calcium, phosphor and uric acid passing through each solution was detected by spectrophotometric analysis to assess its efficiency and determine whether or not the urinary stones were dissolve...

CONCLUSIONS: Tension-free mesh repair is associated with low morbidity and low recurrence rates in PD patients. Timely management and close collaboration with renal physicians are essential to continue PD after repair. PMID: 32063146 [PubMed - in process]

Patients with end-stage renal disease have a high risk of dying from cardiovascular disease that cannot be explained solely by traditional cardiovascular disease risk factors. Hesse et  al. suggest that dysfunctional high-density lipoprotein cholesterol generated in patients with end-stage renal disease causes endothelial glycocalyx degradation. Glycocalyx degradation may represent one of the earliest insults leading to atheroma formation, and so this work suggests a novel link b etween renal failure and cardiovascular disease.

Conclusions: FFPE tissue samples can be suitable for gene expression studies as well as immunostaining of specific cells or molecules. The most pronounced gene expression patterns were found in the organs with highest levels of Neisseria meningitidis DNA. Thousands of protein-coding and non-coding RNA transcripts were altered in lungs, heart and kidneys. We identified specific biomarker panels both protein-coding and non-coding RNA transcripts, which differed from organ to organ. Involvement of many genes and pathways add up and the combined effect induce organ failure.

This report describes the study protocol of a randomized prospective multi-centre open-label clinical trial to evaluate whether starting renal replacement therapy with twice-weekly haemodialysis sessions preserves residual renal function better than the standard thrice-weekly regimen. We also explore other clinical parameters, such as concentrations of uremic toxins, dialysis doses, control of anaemia, removal of medium-weight uremic toxins, nutritional status, quality of life, hospital admissions and mortality. Only incident haemodialysis patients who can maintain a urea clearance rate KrU ≥ 2.5 mL/min/1.73&thin...

Pulmonary hypertension associated with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) is an important yet under-recognized condition and can lead to life-threatening complications. The pathogenesis of pulmonary hypertension is peculiar in ESRD, and understanding it is important to recognize such patients at the earliest and commence appropriate treatment. Many studies have discovered the prevalence of pulmonary hypertension to be up to 80% in ESRD and have been associated with increased mortality. WHO has classified pulmonary hypertension in renal failure to be in group 5, a group defined by unclear multifactorial etiologies.

CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of pregnancy-related AKI remains high in the maternal ICU setting. Septic shock, hypovolemic shock, and higher APACHE II and SOFA scores were independently associated dialysis therapy (hemodialysis in all cases). KDIGO stages 2 and 3 were less frequent than KDIGO stage 1 in patients with gestational hypertension. Norepinephrine and hemodialysis therapy were independently associated with maternal mortality in patients with pregnancy-related AKI. KDIGO stage 3 was associated with higher maternal mortality.
