Association of Increased Serum Ferritin With Impaired Muscle Strength/Quality in Hemodialysis Patients

We reported previously that muscle quality and muscle strength provide clinically relevant predictors for better survival in hemodialysis patients. Iron overload might impair muscle function by its accumulation in muscle in such patients.

CONCLUSION: There is a relationship between health literacy and quality of life among patients receiving hemodialysis. Conclusively, addressing health literacy may improve the quality of life among patients receiving hemodialysis. PMID: 31524153 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In this study, a series of new amphiphilic multi-charged cyclodextrins (AMCD)s as anti-heparin coagulants were designed and synthesized. The AMCD assembly was capable of selective heparin binding through multivalent bonding and showed a better neutralizing effect towards both unfractionated heparin and low molecular weight heparin than protamine in plasma. Meanwhile, an AMCD and vitamin K (VK) co-assembly was prepared to realize heparin-responsive VK release and provide a novel VK deficiency treatment for hemodialysis patients. This AMCD-VK co-assembly for heparin neutralization &vitamin K supplementation synergistic c...

Authors: McGill RL, Lacson EK Abstract INTRODUCTION: Nephrologists have increased arteriovenous access placement in patients with chronic kidney disease. Not yet usable 'maturing' arteriovenous fistulas and grafts are nearly as common as mature arteriovenous fistulas or grafts. Little has been reported about patients initiating haemodialysis with unready arteriovenous fistulas or grafts. METHODS: The United States Renal Data System records for all adult patients initiating haemodialysis with central venous catheters between July 2010 and December 2011. Patients were categorized by whether a maturing arterioveno...

CONCLUSION: Our data lead us to believe that it is possible to successfully treat catheter-related bloodstream infection caused by S. aureus and to avoid removing the tunnelled central venous catheter in many more cases than what has been reported in the literature. On the third day, it is mandatory to decide whether to replace the tunnelled central venous catheter or to carry on with antibiotic therapy. Apyrexia and amelioration of laboratory parameters suggest continuing systemic and antibiotic lock therapy for no less than 4 weeks, otherwise, tunnelled central venous catheter removal is recommended.
