Impact of vascular access intervention therapy on cardiac load in hemodialysis patients

We examined the factors associated with cardiac load in hemodialysis patients undergoing VAIVT by measuring levels of α human atrial natriuretic polypeptide (hANP) and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) before and after VAIVT. Data were extracted on hemodialysis patients who underwent measurements of αhANP and BNP in before and after VAIVT at our facility and related facilities between February 2014 and December 2014. Nineteeen patients (median age, 73.0 [66.5–80.5] years; male, 52.6%; 36.8% with diabetes; median duration of dialysis treatment, 50.0 [21–109] months) were enrolled in this study. Flow volume of AVF was higher after VAIVT than that before VAIVT (442.0 vs. 758.0 mL/minute, P

Conclusion: This is the first study to define 9-year mortality predictors in PD patients in our center. Although peritonitis is the most feared complication of PD, our study showed that peritonitis did not reduce patient survival. PMID: 32041385 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The arteriovenous shunt, created as vascular access for hemodialysis, increases ventricular volume-overload, predisposing patients to developing cardiac dysfunction. The integral function of mitochondrial respiration is critically important fo...

CONCLUSION: Our findings show that CCL2 levels are associated with dyslipidemia, which suggests a role of this cytokine in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease in HD patients. A better understanding of this pathogenesis could contribute to the discovery of new therapeutic targets that would reduce cardiovascular complications in these patients.

ConclusionMediacalcosis is a severe complication since it increases the risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in hemodialysis patients, to this end, the individualization of entangled factors involved in its pathophysiology, will slow down or prevent its progression in the future.

Conclusions: In selected cases, particularly in severe diuretic refractory heart failure, PDC placement placed by a nephrologist is feasible with a low rate of complications even in a low-volume center setting. The catheters we placed were all functioning with only minor complications and PD could be started immediately. PMID: 31162993 [PubMed - in process]

Renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitors (RAASi) have beneficial cardio-renal properties, although they can often cause hyperkalaemia. OBJECTIVE: To examine the prevalence of hyperkalaemia in CKD, identify factors associated with its appearance and the relationship between hyperkalaemia and mortal...

This study analyzed the relationship between health resource use and patients on hemodialysis (HD) asking for medical help as well as the outcomes in Taiwan. This was a retrospective cohort study that analyzed the medical data of patients on dialysis, which were collected from the National Health Insurance Database of Taiwan for the period 2000 to 2010. The study sample was screened out, and new patients starting HD from 2001 to 2005 were considered. The daily distribution of patients with ESRD in the Monday, Wednesday, and Friday (MWF) and Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday (TTS) groups who underwent emergent HD showed rem...
