The risk of bleeding with tunneled dialysis catheter placement.

CONCLUSIONS: Based upon these data, it seems reasonable to classify the TDC placement procedure as having a very low risk of bleeding and to not require preprocedure laboratory testing. The value of suspending antithrombotic medications prior to TDC placement cannot be supported. PMID: 27470252 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: While popular opinion may indicate that steal syndrome is a commonly litigated complication, our data reveal that the most common injury litigated is death which may frequently be the result of a hemorrhagic episode. In addition to hemorrhage, the remaining most common complications included steal syndrome and loss of limb function. Therefore, steps to better prevent, diagnose and treat bleeding, nerve injury, and steal syndrome in a timely manner are critical to preventing hemodialysis-access-associated litigation.

A high risk of suicide has been observed in adults with end-stage renal disease who are undergoing haemodialysis. Since suicide is preventable, early screening, a prompt multidisciplinary approach and appropriate treatment of depression are critical and...

CONCLUSION: Tinzaparin was safe and efficacious for most INHD patients without accumulation or bleeding. The conversion from unfractionated heparin to tinzaparin required an increased tinzaparin dose for 31% of INHD patients. PMID: 31434091 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionHT associated with post-partum AKF is relatively frequent, secondary to HELLP syndrome and tubular necrosis. The prognosis depends on the early diagnosis and treatment and on the preventive measures during the pregnancy (self-measurement of blood pressure monitoring or ambulatory measurement of blood pressure, screening for proteinuria and uric acid analysis).

Abstract Warfarin is the most commonly prescribed anticoagulant in hemodialysis (HD) patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF). Recent trends show that Nephrologists are increasingly prescribing novel oral anticoagulants, despite the fact that no randomized clinical trials have been conducted in dialysis patients. Difficulties maintaining international normalized ratio in the therapeutic range, increased risk of intracranial hemorrhage and concerns regarding warfarin-induced vascular calcification and calciphylaxis may be responsible. Anticoagulation quality is poor in HD patients. A variety of factors ...

Conclusion: The results suggest that an immunosuppressive state develops at the terminal stage of severe leptospirosis with pulmonary hemorrhage and shock similar to that of patients with septic shock, with diffuse endothelial activation in the spleen, splenitis, and signs of disturbance in the innate and adaptive immunity in the spleen. The presence of leptospiral antigens in 73% of the spleens of the leptospirosis patients suggests the etiological agent contributes directly to the pathogenesis of the lesions. Our results support therapeutic approaches involving antibiotic and immunomodulatory treatments for leptospirosis...

This study included 306 consecutive patients with severe chronic renal insufficiency and/or on dialysis who underwent PCI. Patients were prospectively enrolled and divided according to the access site into TRI group and trans-femoral intervention group. Severe renal insufficiency was defined as estimated glomerular filtration rate

We present a 92-year-old woman with a 6-year history of regular hemodialysis (HD). For the past 2 years, she has been receiving HD via a tunneled cuffed catheter placed in the right internal jugular vein. She suffered from a right chest subcutaneous hematoma near the catheter without recent trauma. The increasing size of hematoma after dialysis, and the oozing from the outlet of the catheter were also observed. Diagnosis: Computed tomography of chest and angiography were done and showed that the hematoma was caused by thoracoacromial artery bleeding, which was near the puncture site of the tunneled cuffed catheter. Int...

Conclusion: HD presented a more adverse impact on oral health than PD, particularly periodontal disease and oral Candida colonization; however, this impact on oral health appears to be reduced or ameliorated when patients change from HD to PD therapy.

Rationale: As survival prospects improve for long-term patients with hemodialysis, it is common for patients to exhaust all upper extremity access options before other avenues need exploration. The purpose of this case report was to describe our experience in creating a prosthetic graft between left femoral artery and right femoral vein in a patient with history of central venous occlusion and bilateral femoral neck fracture. Patient concerns: A female patient with hemodialysis exhausted all upper extremity access options along with bilateral femoral neck fracture. Diagnoses: Patients with end-stage renal disease e...
